When she was suddenly given the opportunity of a new life in rural Jutland, journalist and archetypal Londoner Helen Russell discovered a startling statistic: the happiest place on earth isn't Disneyland but Denmark, a land often thought of by foreigners as consisting entirely of long, dark winters, cured herring, Lego and pastries. What is the secret to their success? Are happy Danes born or made?

I picked this up because the title intrigued me. I stayed with because I grew quite interested in learning about the Danish way of life. Enjoyed how the author interspersed stories of her life with solid researched information. Her sense of humor and nicknames for folks kept it light and fun. Would love to have her write a sequel so we can keep up with Lego Man and Little Red
