From the Back Cover
The Danes are famously the happiest people in the world, and hygge is a cornerstone of their way of life. Hygge (pro-nounced Hoo-ga) loosely translates as a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. You know hygge when you feel it. It is when you are cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one, or sharing comfort food with your closest friends. It is those crisp blue mornings when the light through your window is just right. It is about gratitude and savoring the simple pleasures in life. In short, it is the pursuit of everyday happiness.

Top Customer Reviews
With all the research available to the author, I would have liked to have read something more than this advice: light a candle, invite a couple of friends over, and eat cake. Really? That's the secret to happiness?
This book is such a fluff piece, I have NO idea why it has received so much attention. Minus one star for being misleading. You won't find any "secrets" in this book nor anything of tangible value.
Minus one star for repetition. How many times can an author say light a candle to experience hygge? The concepts in this book are superficial, yet they're repeated in almost every chapter. Plus, the chapters feel like they're out of order the way they are currently organized: minus another star.
I don't know who is to blame for this fluffy mess. The author? The editor? The publisher? The author has no trouble stringing sentences together. At times, the author did an excellent job of painting ideas. So...what happened? Why isn't there more information? Why are there hints of information at the beginning and ends of this book, with a bunch filler chapters in between? This book had so much potential. It could have been a useful book, a book to help people discover more happiness in their lives. What a wasted opportunity!
