From the author of the international bestseller The Little Book of Hygge

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.

Review:

Prepare to love lykke, the Danish word for happiness and fortune, with The Little Book of Lykke by Meik Wiking, whose Little Book of Hygge sold half a million copies. Wiking goes in search of the real meaning of happiness, and finds it has little to do with wealth. A funny, inspiring read (Psychologies)

Happiness can be elusive even for people who are mentally healthy. Many people, such as those with depression or anxiety who are struggling through darker times, may feel they want to give up the fight. That is why the charming and thought-provoking The Little Book of Lykke could lighten, guide and inspire so many. (Marjorie Wallace, CEO of SANE mental health charity)
