Product description

Review

A lovely mix of English sensibility and Danish pragmatism. Helen seems to have understood more about the Danish character than I have! My only worry is that it will make everyone want to have a go and my holiday home area will get overcrowded.''Russell is possessed of a razor-sharp wit and a winning self-deprecation - two of the things that make this book such a delight.''A hugely enjoyable romp through the pleasures and pitfalls of setting up home in a foreign land''A wryly amusing account of a new life in a strange land.''if you can't up sticks and move to Denmark… don't despair: here are a few tips and tricks I've picked up for getting a slice of the Danish work-life balance wherever you are.''Russell's husband takes a contract with Lego and they are catapulted into rural Jutland, in Denmark. Russell, who is a fast living journalist in London, is at first overwhelmed with the silence, the people, the sheer differences of living in a very foreign country. She then discovers that Danish people have the highest-rated happiness scores in the world… what's their secret? Why are they so damn happy? I'll let you know, it's a lot to do with something called Hygge".''Giving up isn't always a bad thing; being a dropout can even change your life for the better. Helen Russell was a high-flying glossy magazine editor before moving to rural Jutland in Denmark which, despite its long dark winters, is also statistically the happiest nation on earth. While there, Helen soon discovered there's more to Danish life than cured herring and Nordic knits, as she described in her book, "The Year of Living Danishly".''Ever bought a book for a friend and ended up reading it yourself? I dipped into this and ended up buying my own copy so I could finish it''A hugely enjoyable autobiographical account of upping sticks… to the sticks.'"
