Book Overview

Join the happiness revolution The author of the New York Times bestseller The Little Book of Hygge offers more inspiration and suggestions for achieving greater happiness, by practicing Lykke (LO-ka)--pursuing and finding the good that exists in the world around us every day.

While the Danes are the happiest people on the planet, happiness isn't exclusively Danish; cultures around the world have their own unique approaches to leading a contented, fulfilled life. For his work at the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Meik Wiking travels the globe from Dubai to Finland, Rio de Janeiro to Bhutan, South Korea to the United States, to discover the secrets of the very happiest people.

In The Little Book of Lykke, Meik identifies the six factors that explain the majority of differences in happiness across the world--togetherness, money, health, freedom, trust, and kindness--and explores what actions we can take to become happier. As he reveals, we can deepen our blissfulness and contentment with little adjustments in our behavior, whether it's eating like the French (sitting around a table and savoring our time) or dancing the tango like Argentinians in Buenos Aires.

With his trademark warmth and wit, Meik explores the happiness gap for parents, how much money you really need to buy happiness, how we can be Read More chevron_right

   Loved everything about this!
This book has been loved! I like the approach and the comparative statistics, and the thoughtful suggestions and commentary that follow. It does and it is for a purpose, but not. He highlights things that different governments do and how they affect the happiness of this country. Because unfortunately, a lot of that stuff affects your stress level and may be worth changing for a happier world. So, I think it is important to mention. They look at why Denmark has been the happiest country in work, and a lot of it is government policies and programs that serve the public, on top of culture. However, there are many other things here that contribute to happiness. It's not all politics! I love art and his writing style is beautiful.

   Sorry I Bought This
Failure to download every chapter! '' Too many Shutterstock photos '', I guess. Plus, what I have been able to read is condescending and preachy. I was hoping for something more philosophical and motivating '', as his first book was.

   Friend loves both Lykke and Hygge Books for her gift
Bought this for a friend as she had the book Hygge by this author and loved it. She loves the Lykke book too - I read a lot of reviews saying you could do one or the other because they are similar, but my friend says that while there are similarities, the books contain different examples of contextual points and do focus on different information too- she likes having both! In our opinion, the more exposure to positivity in our household is better.

   Finally a useful handbook on making yourself happy
Loved the first book about Hygge but this book is on another level. It is more about finding and creating happiness in your own life and the components we can hone and keep in balance so that we can be happy and help others find their own happiness. This book is filled with rainbows and statistics just like. It is the best balance of the two that I have ever known!

   No Lykke Here
I regret buying the Little Book of Lykke ''. I found it to be a political commentary that tries to disguise its self as a book about happiness, and sadly failing. For me it was a waste of time, money and good sight. I love to read and sometimes it takes a few chapters for a book to come together. That was my hope for this book, but it did not happen. If I had wanted to read a political book, I would have ordered from a different genre.

   Nice sweet read.
I really enjoyed this book ''. It was a hot winters read in front of the fire with a beautiful drink. If you read the Little Book of Hygge, you are very similar and you only need to read one or the other.

   More than a book:This opens doors to a better way of living
This book is simple, but very affective in bringing back humanity into the world. If you are interested in this book, don 't let the negative comments hold you back. The smart reviewers are trying to feel negative just. To read this book, get this reference!

   A guide to how social policy can make people happier
A really interesting book looking at happiness and social policy is more informative and interesting than the same author's book on Hygge.
