A practical guide to what makes us happy, from the CEO of the Happiness Research Instititue in Copenhagen and bestselling author of The Little Book of Hygge.

We all know Denmark is the happiest country in the world—but this doesn't make it perfect. Happiness isn't exclusively Danish. Nor is it just eating pastries, lighting candles, and practising hygge. Happiness is something available to all, wherever you are, and whatever your means. Starting from the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Meik Wiking, probably the happiest man in the world, travels across the globe on a quest to uncover the secrets of the very happiest people from Dubai to Rio de Janeiro, taking back to his native country their tips, tricks, and unique approaches to a fulfilled life.
     Exploring the happiness gap for parents, how much money you really need to buy happiness, and why—luckily for us—the expectation of kissing Rachel Weiss is better than the real thing, Meik brings together a global roadmap for happiness with his trademark wit. Weaving together original research and personal anecdotes, The Little Book of Lykke gives us a new approach to achieving everyday happiness.
MEIK WIKING is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and one of the leading experts in global happiness.

And only someone absolutely...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring What a lovely book filled with beautiful pictures and heart-warming examples/studies of happiness that occur worldwide. The quest for happiness is on everyone's mind, so it's refreshing to see how happiness is defined in different countries. It goes to show that we are all different, but yet the same; we can learn from one another to increase our own (and other's) happiness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get ready to be inspired. Reading this book made me a better person. I began getting to know my neighbours, my relationship with my partner has become more open and honest, and I've started doing more for others, especially strangers. It only talks about good things, so if you want some positivity with your reading, you have found the right book.
