3.5 stars This book isn’t as good as the Hygge book but still parts of it were interesting. I wanted to read this only to learn about Swedes and how they lead a happy life. Also because of the amazing IKEA from Sweden. I really want to move to Europe after reading books like these - the quality of...

Na rozdiel od Hygge (ku šťastiu treba vlnené ponozky, sladké pečivo a sviečky), Lagom hovorí o zdravom rozume, ekopostupoch v prospech krajiny a o živote v komunite. Stále trochu varenie z vody, ale omnoho zodpovednejším prístupom k svetu. Stále je to pre krajiny prvého sveta, ale aspoň nabáda k...

Not a “profound” book by any means, but a clean-cut, tidy little book about happiness and healthy, mindful living that was a great pick-me-up in the middle of winter. I love a lot of the Swedish ideology this book promotes: taking time to be in nature, avoidance of consumerism and wastefulness, t...

Linnea Dunne, aki összeszedte kis könyvében, hogy mi is az ami a svédeket kiegyensúlyozottá teszi évekig élt távol szülőhazájától és ezalatt jött rá, hogy mennyi minden van, ami hiányzik neki onnan. S milyen sok dolgot lehet a Lagom-ból bárhol a világon hasznosítani és elérni, hogy nyugodtabb leg...

Interesting insights into Swedish society and values, expounding at length the philosophy of moderation in all things and citing many ways to embrace it in our own lives. Like last winter's books on the Danish concept of Hygge, the basic concept is a valid antidote to our over-indulgent, consumeri...

Overall, 3.5. Physical aesthetics of the book: 5 stars, absolutely. A great, minimalist feel while the embossing and matte, sturdy cover give it weight in hand. Really love it. At the end, the author admits it’s a lightweight skimming of a deep concept and offers only a wee bit of practical advice...

Hea raamat Rootsi kultuuriga tutvumiseks või selle paremaks mõistmiseks. Kindlasti palju vahvaid ideid selle kohta, kuidas oma elu võimalikult tasakaalukalt elada. Samas tundsin, et see jääb minust natuke kaugele hetkel, kui mind Rootsiga miski ei seo.
