Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Fantastic!!"

    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 :)

    "Really invokes the spirit of Hygge. "

    Listened in one sitting on a cold December Sunday while making my flat more Hygge. It has given me more inspiration to enjoy the winter months and I finished feeling warm inside and ready to get my cosy pleasure on.

    "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

    Insightful, inspirational, comforting

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    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.
