5.0 von 5 Sternen An interesting social journey through all things nordic 10. Februar 2014
Von Toxoscot - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
What`s behind the statement that the Nordic cousins are "the happiest people on the planet"? It deserves an investigation. Michel Booth a resident of Copenhagen provides a good extended synopsis; written with a dry sense of humour.
What makes these nations enjoy an unrivalled security; cradle to grave social care? The recurring concept of "hygge" (an untranslatable that means a complete absence of anything annoying). A word that appears in everyday speech in Denmark, but a concept that permeates the Nordic world. However, if all is well in the northern front, why not an en masse migration from their European cousins? Perhaps all is not well in the "state of Denmark" and its Nordic neighbours. The author explores the paradoxes, and taboos that permeates the Nordic world. A great amusing and educational read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Every Jewel has its Poison! 4. März 2014
Von Seanie Blue - Veröffentlicht auf
They are easy to joke about, the Scandinavians, and they've managed to put up an amazing screen of public relations to keep the rest of the world in a state of ongoing awe, and this book rips into the heart of what it means to be Nordic. The Viking nature of always having to come out of the deal a bit better than your victim -- sorry, your client -- stretches over a thousand years of a strange sort of real estate ambition. They never really sought to conquer any other people, they just wanted to trade and live in peace, and they were willing to commit atrocities to do so. Booth's book consistently drops your jaw with perfect profiles of these communities. I will not travel to these places again without being reminded daily of his observations. The book is a thrill, and of course will be met with a lot of rubbishing from its character nations, but Booth lives there and he is simply detailing what he sees, and I'd say his glimpses at Nordic society are much more an elaborate study in portraiture than the foreigner's glances that the Scandinavians will claim in their defense. For people claiming to be open about humanity and sexuality and free will, the Scandinavians are amazingly racist, sexist, and xenophobic. It's what makes them so much fun! And they all admit it, if you speak to a single one of them; never in a group, since your accusations will be met with fury. But look into the recent hate crimes in all the Nordic countries, and you will be astounded; ask a Danish woman what will happen to her pretty hat if she makes the mistake of walking alone into a redneck burgh in the countryside. A great great great read, Michael Booth is witty and quick but his aim is unerringly perfect.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful and funny 16. März 2014
Von mikael shainkman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This is by far the most insightful and funniest book I've ever read on the Scandinavians. Booth utalizes the combination of being born somewhere else, but having lived in Scandinavia for many years to maximum effect.

I couldn't put it down, and repeatedly pestered my friends and family by quoting long passages to them.

And in case you still wonder, yes I recommend it. Highly.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A mine of information about the Nordic People 16. April 2014
Von Bruce Murray - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This is a fascinating book written by an Englishman living in Denmark. He writes of all the different branches of the Nordic race and describes their values, mores, and behavior. It would be an essential read for anyone traveling to these countries. He is an engaging writer.
