Product description


"[Meik Wiking] is our charming tour guide for this "treasure hunt" in which happiness is the much sought-after prize. Travelling around the world, he learns what works best where and distills these lessons into a lovely life plan that celebrates community spirit."--S Magazine

"When it comes to living our best lives, there is much to learn from different cultures... The Happiness Research Institute explores global trends of life satisfaction. It's headed by Meik Wiking, who has collected his findings in The Little Book of Lykke."--Good Housekeeping, UK

"Wiking has another Danish word for us: Lykke. And this time the scope is global. Lykke is the Danish word for happiness and Wiking's new book takes the focus away from Scandinavia to explore how other countries are leading the way in cultivating happiness."--Telegraph (UK)

[Praise for the UK edition]: "Move over Hygge - there's a new Scandi buzzword about to take the world by storm."--Mail on Sunday

From the Inside Flap

Lykke (Loo-ka) (n): Happiness

It's easy to see why Denmark is often called the world's happiest country. Not only do they have work and life in perfect balance, free higher education, and trains that run on time, but they burn more candles per household than anywhere else.

So nobody knows more about happiness--what the Danes call lykke--than Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and author of the bestselling sensation The Little Book of Hygge. But he believes that, while we can certainly learn a lot from the Danes about finding fulfillment, the keys to happiness are actually buried all around the globe.

In this captivating book, he takes us on a treasure hunt to unlock the doors to the good life. From how we spend our precious time to how we relate to our neighbors and cook dinner, he gathers evidence, stories, and tips from the very happiest corners of the planet. This is the ultimate guide to how we can all find a little more lykke in our lives.
