The Danish Way to Live Well

Guaranteed to bring warmth and comfort into your life, The Little Book of Hygge is the book we all need.

Denmark has an international reputation for being one of the happiest nations in the world, and hygge is widely recognised to be the magic ingredient.

Hooga? Hhyooguh? Heurgh? It is not really important how you pronounce or even spell it. What is important is that you feel it. Whether you're cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one, or sharing comfort food with your closest friends, hygge is about creating an atmosphere where we can let your guard down.

The definitive, must-read introduction to Hygge, written by Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute, this book is packed full of original research, recipes and ideas to help you add a touch of hygge to your life.
