The Little Book of Lykke: The Danish Search for the World's Happiest People Reviews
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 all over the world, not just the Danes. He also didn't write this book to tells us all the answers but instead gives us a 'treasure map' to help us on our journey!

Kinda fun and not serious. I liked the examples of how people have created communities and happiness in their lives.
Publishers certainly seem to be milking the current interest in Scandinavian lifestyle books; The Little Book of Lyyke: The Danish Search for the World's Happiest People is by the author of The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well, which I found rather lovely. The intention of Wiking's second book is 'to take you treasure hunting; to go in pursuit of happiness; to find the good that does exist in the world - and to bring this into the light so that, together, we can help it spread.' ...more
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 argument. I do think the country has many habits the United States would benefit from, however, and I appreciate the work he is doing. I would be interested to read the book that came before this one, too.
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, happier world. You’ll want to be a better person after reading it.
Neste volume Meike Wiking explora a felicidade (e a procura dela) em coisas mais realistas e quotidianas como o dinheiro e saúde. Apesar de ser muito interessante tal como O Livro do Hygge, neste livro houve uma abordagem mais seguida por histórias reais que, apesar de muito interessantes e importantes, achei um pouco mais "massudo" ao passo que a leitura no volume anterior é muito mais simples.
No fundo, gostei da leitura mas preferi o primeiro livro do autor.
