Почти книга-медитация. Q: Иностранцу сразу видно, что есть в Дании датского. Hygge (уют), tryghed (безопасность) и trivsel (процветание) — три отличительные черты датской культуры и человеческих взаимоотношений. Samfund — датское слово, обозначающее общество в целом, имеет также значение «общность...

This is a beautiful little book, with some gorgeous images and some lovely sentiments. Hygge is something that seems both delightful and yet also deeply claustraphobic. Part of me gets the feeling that the emphasis on Hygge is a reaction to a Danish past where showy, violent one upmanship was the...

The main thing I took away from this beautiful little book, was to appreciate the small things in life. This may seem really obvious, but in reality it is something that can be quite difficult to remember to do with a busy lifestyle. It is certainly something at this moment in time I need remindi...

I won Louisa Thomsen Brits' The Book of Hygge from a Books Are My Bag competition on Twitter, and couldn't have been happier with my prize. As an object, the book is beautiful; it is a sturdy yet compact hardback, which has been filled with the most lovely and calming photographic accompaniments,...

This is a beautifully produced book, lovely to hold in the hand, with an attractive cover, lovely illustrations, and printed on high quality cream paper. It clearly explains the concept of 'hygge' and all it encompasses; a blend of mindfulness, cosiness and sincerity; a focus on people and relati...

Naprosto zbytečná kniha o tom, že pohodu a spokojenost naleznete v místech, kde se cítíte bezpečně a s lidmi, které máte rádi. Autorka pořád dokola mele to samé a celé je to úplně zbytečné a receptu na štěstí se nedočkáte. Ilustrující fotografie jsou podle mě depresivní. Celkově vzato zcela vyhoz...

A bit on the heavy side - more of a philosophical/historical guide to hygge. It's worth noting that the author is making a donation to a homeless charity for a every copy that is bought.

Koncept hygge je zaujímavý a som rada, že som si o ňom mohla niečo ucelené prečítať. (Opäť sa mi potvrdilo pravidlo - neplať za knihu, kým ju neprečítaš.) Myšlienkové podanie (a trochu aj grafické) je na úrovni úmorne repetitívnej dlhokánskej bla bla powerpointovej prezentácie. Z textu úplne cítiť...

February 07, 2017 Riječi nastaju iz kulture, povijesti, podrijetla i mjesta. Oblikuju ih vrijeme i navike te se pričama, obredima i vrijednostima prenose s jedne generacije na drugu, zapisala je Louisa Thomsen Brits u uvodnom poglavlju svoje knjige Hygge : sretan život na d...

This book was quite boring. The most interesting parts were the quotes from other writers! If anything, it made me want to read their works, so I shall list them here in case anyone wants to skip a step and just go straight to the sources. The writers she quoted are: William Morris, Sensual Home...
