Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of The Little Book of Hygge, written and read by Meik Wiking.
Denmark is often said to be the happiest country in the world. That's down to one thing: hygge.
'Hygge has been translated as everything from the art of creating intimacy to cosiness of the soul to taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things. My personal favourite is cocoa by candlelight....'
You know hygge when you feel it. It is when you are cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one or sharing comfort food with your closest friends. It is those crisp blue mornings when the light through your window is just right.
Who better than Meik Wiking to be your guide to all things hygge? Meik is CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and has spent years studying the magic of Danish life. In this beautiful, inspiring audiobook, he will help you be more hygge: from picking the right lighting and planning a dinner party through to creating an emergency hygge kit and even how to dress.
Meik Wiking is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen. He is committed to finding out what makes people happy and has concluded that hygge is the magic ingredient that makes Danes the happiest people in the world.

This is a fabulous book on happiness and how to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Absolutely fantastic! At first the reader is a bit wooden but dont let that put you off. You get used to the voice, but the book itself has made me happier than I have been in ages. Get into it!
"Enjoyable short listen"
An enjoyable quaint easy listen to prompt simple and modest practices in our ongoing quest for living well. Great points to note and practice particularly as we enter the Autumn/Winter season in the UK I shall be making everything Hygge!
A nice insight into Danish culture and lifestyle making me want to take a trip to stock up on candles, blankets, some good quality hot drinks and inviting my loved ones round.
Will listen again for inspiration as I implement the authors suggestions :)
"Puts things onto perspective"
A nice little reminder to enjoy the moments we have in life a bit more and to get cosy in all we do. Very short and easy to listen to.
"A little book of happiness"
A lovely introduction to the concept of hygge that made me feel sheer happiness whilst I was listening to it. Highly recommended for a cosy listen.
The narrator , it was clear how much he really loved the way of life that he talks about .
There is no other book to compare to this book. Wonderfully unique!
Everything. He was a joy to listen to and I hope to hear more op from him in the future
It made me happy
This is the perfect book to read while drinking a hot drink, while wrapped in a blanket on a cold night . A gorgeous book !
"Beautifully written book"
I didn't have any expectations of this book as it was recommended from a friend and I didn't understand the concept of Hygge. However after listening to this on a lazy cold Sunday afternoon next to a roaring fire I really enjoyed the ideas, with lots of inspiration on how to make life warmer, more engaged and happy. Left a lovely fuzzy feeling. Enjoy!!
"what I always new, but had not putt words to"
I new I loved fires, now I know why.
candles, nature, friends, soft light.
the mountains, skiing, cooking
What a great book. I loved everything about it, even the sound of the narrators voice added to the pleasure.
"9999999 I feel all Hygge"
I can't recommend listening to this enough. Sure, reading it is ok but Meik's accent brings the Hygge to life.
I'm off for a hot chocolate
"Delightful little book about happiness."
Insightful, inspirational, comforting
Insightful book about what makes Danes happy and what we should aspire to do more in our daily life to achieve that happiness. The author is not preachy and merely narrates the Danish way of life with useful advice and self-deprecating humor.
