The book showed in a manner of speaking the rediscovery of hygge by a Denmark-born Canadian. This lasted for some 20 pages - the interview with her father is particularly interesting to see how people enjoyed hygge "once upon a time." It is more self-help oriented than I would have liked; the author works as a HR specialist and speaker and the writing makes me think that there is not very much hygge in her own life. She offers advice "you should do/could do that" but she's not saying what I hoped once I started this book...."This is what works for me....how I welcomed hygge into my life" etc. If you already incorporated in your life those ideas/principles (a good book, a nice bath, a walk with friends, dinner with family, dancing in the rain etc) the books brings nothing spectacular to the table. All in all, it was easy to read and entertaining.
