The Little Book of Lykke: The Danish Search for the World's Happiest People Reviews
I thought this was going to be a disappointing read, nothing but a publisher's ploy to make more money out of a tried and tested author (and let's face it, it still is) BUT I really loved reading this. I loved the photos included, and I loved the style of illustrations. I liked the global view it took but still with an element of focus on Denmark a.k.a. my future home. I also loved how the inclusion of resources/apps/websites etc which can help us all be happier.
I am so glad that I loved this second book as much as I enjoyed The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well!
Lykke (Luu-kah) (n): Happiness
This book takes us on a treasure hunt, looking for the keys to happiness around the world. The book discusses togetherness, money, health, freedom, trust and kindness. I liked that the book still referred back to Denmark throughout as I love learning more about Denmark. This book not only helps you think about happiness, but also society, and ways in ...more
Loved this! So much more inspiration than The Little Book of Hygge.
“Everything runs smoothly in Denmark. Well, almost. Four years ago, one train did arrive five minutes late. The passengers each got a letter of apology from the prime minister and a designer chair of their choice as compensation.”
I read “The Little Book Of Lykke” on and off between being in Denmark and now - so nearly two months. A long time for such a short book but I wanted to be able to relate the content and practices in reflection to my own lifestyle.
From front to back this is like a litt ...more
Een mooi boek, met een fijne positieve insteek. Er staan absoluut nuttige tips in, maar ik vind het geen must-read. Gewoon een leuk boek voor tussendoor :).
The Little Book of Lykke was my first read of 2018, and it was the perfect choice to start the year off positively. I highly recommend it to everyone. It’s an excellent follow-up book to The Little Book of Hygge, full of inspiration for how you can participate in creating a kinder, happier world. You’ll want to be a better person after reading it.
Книжка Міка Вікінга про хюґе пояснювала, як жеж бідні данці виживають посеред своєї споконвічної сірості. А оця книжечка уже про щастя взагалі - вірніше, про роботу Міка Вікінга та те, чим вона (на його думку) є корисною. Він ділиться статистикою, роз'яснює, на які критерії вони спираються в роботі Інституту дослідження щастя, докладно аналізує ці критерії, розкладає по шухлядках, аналізує реальні кейси, що в ці шухлядки гарно вкладаються - таке всяке. Заразом трішки філософствує про природу щас ...more
Kinda fun and not serious. I liked the examples of how people have created communities and happiness in their lives.
