Publisher's Synopsis

From the author of the million-copy bestseller, The Little Book of Hygge, comes a beautifully designed guide on how to get more out of work and live like the happiest people in the world: the Danish.


We often look to the Danish lifestyle as a utopia: they enjoy long summer holidays and the cosiest, hyggelig winters, but their happiness isn't just limited to their free time. Almost two thirds report high job satisfaction, and 58% say they would continue working even if they won the lottery. But what exactly are the ingredients of happiness at work? And how can we live more like that?

Meik Wiking, the world's favourite happiness expert, is back with more of his wise yet simple snippets of inspiration from Danish culture, and shows us that nurturing a sense of purpose, trust between you and your manager and freedom within your role can mean more than any job title. Based on stats from his own research and designed with his trademark style, this book is sure to improve your happiness levels.

We will spend around a third of our lives at work, so why not feel happier while we do it?

'I love it, I love it, I love it. Just reading it makes you more content' Chris Evans (praise for My Hygge Home)
