    Another great book?I?m fascinated with the interesting little tidbits he gives us on what makes happier people. I loved the part about reading ?literary fiction? and how that makes people more empathetic. I mean, I already knew it, but it?s nice to hear stuff you?ve thought...

    I won this in the giveaways in exchange for an honest review. Following on from The Little Book of Hygge, Wiking looks at happiness around the world and talks about the studies he's done. This is a beautifully presented little book with illustrations and photographs throughout. I'm not...

    Very cute easy read. I basically skimmed through this and will probably glance at it every so often between books. There are a great deal of common sense ideas to be happy along with supporting evidence. I?ve been to Denmark and it?s a very lovely and admirable country. Would the w...

    This was an interesting read. There was quite a lot of information about happiness and what can make people happy. I didn't love this one as much as his first book but I still quite enjoyed this one. ...

    The world definitely needs more Lykke right now . . . and one of the most profound points that the author makes in this book is that individual happiness and communal happiness are inextricably linked. Focusing on six major indicators of happiness - togetherness, money, health, freedom...

    From now on Meik Wiking should release a new book every December and that is how I should start my new year. Always. This is how I started 2017 and how I started this year. Even though I pre-ordered this book and received it the day of its publication, I was hard pressed to pass up lis...

    Neste volume Meike Wiking explora a felicidade (e a procura dela) em coisas mais realistas e quotidianas como o dinheiro e sade. Apesar de ser muito interessante tal como O Livro do Hygge, neste livro houve uma abordagem mais seguida por histrias reais que, apesar de muito interess...

    Overall a good book on lykke. If only it did not include weird political references... it might have gotten 5 stars. Q: I thought it might cheer me up to see the victory speech of the first female US president, so I turned on the news.... I was tired, and I was sad to hear that a lo...

    It was nice to see the results of researchs done on this subjects and the factors affecting happiness. However i didn?t enjoy it as much as i did hygge. I think it?s because it doesn?t really give a take home message. Sure, it?s not the whole point of the book (and i wasn?t...

    The Little Book of Lykke was my first read of 2018, and it was the perfect choice to start the year off positively. I highly recommend it to everyone. It?s an excellent follow-up book to The Little Book of Hygge, full of inspiration for how you can participate in creating a kinder, h...

    What a charming little book! I read a lot of heavy spiritual books with the aim of learning how to lead a more fulfilling life and these tend to be dense and rich in material on the psyche. This was such a breath of fresh air! It was so refreshing to read about tangible ways of enhanci...

    I found this one to be pretty disappointing. The author apparently researches happiness through a think tank in Denmark. According to him, there are six elements to happiness: health, money, togetherness, trust, freedom, and kindness. Each chapter of the book goes over these elements: ...

    The last of the September reads. There is something about togetherness and feeling close to those around you that this book hits right on the spot. This sweet book shows how we can find a little bit more happiness in our lives. It's not rocket science, but I did take away some ideas fr...

    I thought this was going to be a disappointing read, nothing but a publisher's ploy to make more money out of a tried and tested author (and let's face it, it still is) BUT I really loved reading this. I loved the photos included, and I loved the style of illustrations. I liked the glo...

    Toen ik zag dat er een nieuw boek was van de schrijver van Hygge: de Deense kunst van het leven, wist ik dat ik dit boek ook wilde lezen. Dus ik reserveerde hem bij de bibliotheek, haalde hem op en begon meteen! In Lykke vertelt de schrijver over geluk. Hoe kunnen we gelukkig worden...

    I have been a big fan of Meik ever since I read The Little Book of Hygge. With that in mind, I had high hopes for his next book and it has still managed to exceed my expectations! Meik understands that each of us are unique and I loved that he shared what can make people happy from...

    His job is FASCINATING and I applaud him for what he does- but the book was annoying with his endless bragging about Denmark. I was confused by how often he compared the Danes studies to the United States when the population and demographics make it very difficult to produce a sound ar...
