    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): HappinessThis 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 th...

    Originally posted on A Frolic Through Fiction*Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book. This in no way affects my opinion of the book.Oh what a lovely little book.Just like Meik Wiking’s other book – The Little Book of Hygge – this book is just so beautifully made.

    What a charming little book! I read a lot of heavy spiritual books with the aim of learning how to lead a more fulfilling life and these tend to be dense and rich in material on the psyche. This was such a breath of fresh air! It was so refreshing to read about tangible ways of enhancing, not just my own quality of life, but the lives of those in my community. It's so simple!!The writing is easy, and the facts serve to highlight, where too often ...

    Toen ik zag dat er een nieuw boek was van de schrijver van Hygge: de Deense kunst van het leven, wist ik dat ik dit boek ook wilde lezen. Dus ik reserveerde hem bij de bibliotheek, haalde hem op en begon meteen!In Lykke vertelt de schrijver over geluk. Hoe kunnen we gelukkig worden? Welke dingen spelen allemaal een rol bij geluk? En hoe zorg je zelf voor een gelukkiger leven? Voor dit boek heeft de schrijver heel veel onderzoeken gelezen. En daar...

    Publishers certainly seem to be milking the current interest in Scandinavian lifestyle books; The Little Book of Lyyke: The Danish Search for the World's Happiest People is by the author of The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well, which I found rather lovely. The intention of Wiking's second book is 'to take you treasure hunting; to go in pursuit of happiness; to find the good that does exist in the world - and to bring this into th...

    I loved this book and I plan on reading it again, with a notebook at hand. It made me smile, it made me think and it helped me realize what potential we all have.

    I won this in the giveaways in exchange for an honest review. Following on from The Little Book of Hygge, Wiking looks at happiness around the world and talks about the studies he's done. This is a beautifully presented little book with illustrations and photographs throughout. I'm not sure if I agree with everything but we all definitely need a little more care and joy in our lives.

    The world definitely needs more Lykke right now . . . and one of the most profound points that the author makes in this book is that individual happiness and communal happiness are inextricably linked. Focusing on six major indicators of happiness - togetherness, money, health, freedom, trust and kindness - Wiking breaks down why some communities (or countries) are doing a better job than others in creating happy citizens. Inequality, unfairness ...
