From the Back Cover
New York Times bestseller
Get consciously cozy.
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.
Who better than Meik Wiking to be your guide to all things hygge? Meik is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and has spent years studying the magic of Danish life and what makes people happy. From bringing out the candles and spending time with your tribe to giving yourself a break from the demands of healthy living (cake is most definitely hygge), Meik's beautiful, inspiring book will help you to be more hygge.--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

The book is split up into various aspects of life; food, clothing, home etc. (Making it very easy to reference back to) and each section is rich in explanation of Danish tradition and customs. The author simply breaks down the elements of hygge, as well as some interesting studies on happiness, and therefore directly gives tips on how to create a hygge atmosphere and design hygge activities.
Would recommend to anyone who is interested in learning about hygge and happiness research or simply wants a quick reference guide to good Danish suggestions.
Hygge is a supposedly untranslatable Danish word that describes the concept of comfort that comes from relaxing around friends. This book has lots of nice stories and anecdotes about what makes hygge and how you can introduce a little hygge into your life.
Hint: bring candles.
I do recommended.

As indians, some things would seem out of context as we can't relate to it due to cultural differences. But it is worth reading and learning.
In conclusion, not bad :)
Seeing as it's now the Northern Hemispheres autumn, I'm making sure I get it read while it seems the perfect time of year to read a book about Hygge and snuggly blankets, flickering candles, crackling fires and warm comfy fluffy socks...
The Little Book of Hygge is such a cute little book! The cover just sums up everything the book is about - it's just so lovely. It's kind of an explanation as to what Hygge is - a Danish word that is kind of all about the essence of feeling cozy, warm and safe and snuggly - and how to incorporate it into your life. Basically, buy all the candles you can grab at IKEA and make yourself a cozy reading nook with a pile of blankets and cushions... I adored the recipes that were included, such a nice little surprise. They look fairly simple to make - even for a not particular natural cook like myself - and I can imagine the smell they would create on a cold and frosty day would be absolutely scrumptious.
This is kind of the perfect book to read in the hectic mad busy rush leading up to Christmas and new year. You can easily read a chapter, or a few pages, get distracted by some present wrapping or a Chrimbo movie, and not forget where you're up to or lose your way in a plot. I would suggest it's best read during autumn/winter - so you can Hygge up your house - which wouldn't feel right in spring or summer.
Highly recommended to anyone who wants to learn more about Danish customs, or even just to learn some fab little tips on how to make your home extra cosy and comfy during the colder months of the year. The only reason I didn't give it 5* was because I thought it became a bit repetitive at times with the number of lists.
