Everything readers want to know about hygge and happiness is between the covers of this book. Wiking (The Art of Making Memories) is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute, which has a mission to scientifically study human happiness, specifically examining the relationship between one’s environment and their emotions. Hygge is a Danish design philosophy in which the goal is to create people-centric spaces. The book brings together hygge and happy. It covers the why and the how in thorough detail, and it is brimful of practical and specific design ideas, tips, advice, summaries, and checklists. Additional pluses include a global perspective and COVID studies and information. It goes beyond home design to embrace lifestyles with recommendations, such as cooking a slow dish or growing one’s own food to slow down and center oneself.
VERDICT This book is engaging, informative, timely, and inspirational, all in one. Highly recommended for all types of libraries.
