    If 2016 was all about throwing things away a la Marie Kondo (The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing), then 2017 seems to be all about getting cozy.

    This is a beautifully designed little book which extolls the benefits of coziness/homebodyness and good friends/good food as the way to happiness. The Danes generally rank at the top (or near top) of woldwide happiness rankings. Large social safety-net programs probably play a key role in this, but sinc

    Beautifully published. Gorgeous photos, charts and drawings. The writing is funny, interesting and engaging. A really fun read! So...when are we moving to Denmark??

    *Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book! This in no way affects my opinion.

    This book is like a hug, basically. The second you open it’s pages, you can’t help but feel warm, safe, and appreciative of every little thing. Which is the whole idea, so…good going!

    Straight off the bat I couldn’t help appreciating how beautifully made the book is. Every page has some sort of design element to it, whether it be photographs, small drawing

    The whole idea of Hygge is really lovely. Actually, I think that everybody follows it, having no idea that it has a name. Well, who doesn’t enjoy the winter evening with a cup of cocoa or the fragnance of just baked cake? It is quite a nice book in terms of appreciating life’s little pleasures, but it lacks actual content. The majority of the book is filled with photographs or some really boring statistics and the author doesn’t say anything insightful. I mean, we all have been there, done that. ...more

    The Danish concept of hygge (pronounced HOO-GA) originates from a Norwegian word meaning "well-being." The closest translation for hygge in English is coziness. In a nutshell, the primary elements include candles and fireplaces, intimate gatherings, lots of cake and coffee, warm fabrics, books, and rustic settings.

    The word hygge can be used as a noun or a verb. One interesting part of the book was the hygge dictionary. Variations of the word hygge include the following:

    2.5 stars - It was alright, an average book.

    An easy read about a warm and fuzzy topic, but the book became very repetitive after the first 25%. While I enjoyed the beginning, by the end I was looking forward to moving on to my next book.

    Favorite Quote: While basic living standards are essential for happiness, after the baseline has been met, happiness varies more with quality of human relationships than income.

    This is a delightful little book about a concept that is popular in Denmark. "Hygge" (pronounced hooga) is a concept that doesn't directly translate into English. The word might be translated as "coziness" or "happiness" or "taking pleasure from simple things." I picked up this book because I plan to go to Denmark later this summer. The country has the reputation of being the happiest place in the world. But, this is not quite true--it is really the least unhappy country, due to its extensive so ...more

    This book is beautifully presented, nice cover, quality paper, modern typeface, and beautiful photography. Looks like cross between an Ikea catalogue and a Waitrose food magazine. I found the content fluffy, repetitive and patronising. I'm not danish and have not previously heard of Hygge but am aware that candles, real fires, friends and sharing food you have cooked yourself is good fun and makes you happy. I thought the book was going to let me in on some secrets of Danish happiness, I was dis ...more
