  • Feeling terrified of that upcoming job interview? Take inspiration from the Icelanders and get some Þetta reddast, the unwavering belief that everything will work out in the end.
  • Lost your way in life? Make like the Chinese and find your xingfu, or the thing that gives you real purpose.

Funny, interesting and uplifting

I found this book and the narrator very easy to listen to, gently funny with some laugh out loud moments but most importantly it left me with a smile upon listening. Worth getting.

beautiful book
