Product Details

Praise

“The most poetic of the [hygge books]; I found myself repeatedly returning to its list-like incantation of hyggeligt habits.”
—Louisa Kamps, ELLE

“Casts hygge as a state of mindfulness: how to make essential and mundane tasks dignified, joyful, and beautiful, how to live a life connected with loved ones. [The Book of Hygge] focusses on the concept’s philosophical and spiritual underpinnings rather than its quirky objects.”
The New Yorker

The Book of Hygge is likely to be one of the best guides to creating a more socially connected and rewarding life…A pretty book, soothing to look at, but it also offers a genuine challenge to develop oases of tolerance and peace at home and in the workplace, to balance the alienation, overstimulation and anxious striving of everyday life.”
Sara Catterall, Shelf Awareness (starred review)

“Best [book] for the philosophy of hygge.”
Irish Daily Mail, You magazine
 
“A philosophy for mindful living.”
—The Guardian  
         
 
“A thing of beauty.”
Irish Examiner
 

“Inviting. In increasingly fast-paced and competitive America, hygge has considerable appeal; readers may very well find reading Brits’ compact and enjoyable book the literary version of the practice.”
Publishers Weekly

“Filled with thought-provoking learnings, the evolution of hygge in its many forms.”
—Interiors & Living
