Lykke (Luu-kah) (n): Happiness

It's easy to see why Denmark is often called the world's happiest country. Not only do they have equal parental leave for men and women, 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, whilst we can certainly learn a lot from the Danes about finding fulfilment, 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 inner fulfilment. From how we spend our precious time, to how we relate to our neighbours 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.


Meik Wiking is the CEO of The Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and is one of the world's leading experts in happiness. Committed to understanding happiness, subjective well-being and quality of life, Meik works with countries across the world to discover and explore global trends of life satisfaction. Only someone absolutely dedicated to happiness sits in coffee shops across the world counting peoples' smiles!

His first book, The Little Book of Hygge, became an international bestseller and will soon be published in 31 countries.

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? Welke dingen...

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 sure if I...

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, trust and...

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 from this. I...

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 global view it...

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 w...
