<p>Join the happiness revolution! The author of the <em>New York Times</em> bestseller <em>The Little Book of Hygge</em> offers more inspiration and suggestions for achieving greater happiness, by practicing Lykke (LOO-ka)—pursuing and finding the good that exists in the world around us every day.</p><p>While the Danes are the happiest people on the planet, happiness isn’t exclusively Danish; cultures around the world have their own unique approaches to leading a contented, fulfilled life. For his work at the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Meik Wiking travels the globe from Dubai to Finland, Rio de Janeiro to Bhutan, South Korea to the United States, to discover the secrets of the very happiest people.</p><p>In <em>The Little Book of Lykke</em>, Meik identifies the six factors that explain the majority of differences in happiness across the world—togetherness, money, health, freedom, trust, and kindness—and explores what actions we can take to become happier. As he reveals, we can deepen our blissfulness and contentment with little adjustments in our behavior, whether it’s eating like the French (sitting around a table and savoring our time) or dancing the tango like Argentinians in Buenos Aires.</p><p>With his trademark warmth and wit, Meik explores the happiness gap for parents, how much money you really need to buy happiness, how we can be healthier without having to go to the gym, how we can learn to build trust and collaboration, how we can help ourselves by helping others, and why our expectations often outweigh our reality. Weaving together original research and personal anecdotes, <em>The Little Book of Lykke</em> is a global roadmap for joy that offers a new approach to achieving everyday happiness that not only improve our own lives, but help us build better communities and a better world.</p>

Inspired by Paris, this lighthearted and deceptively wise contemporary memoir serves as a guidebook for women on the path to adulthood, sophistication, and style. Jennifer Scott’s self-published success is now a beautifully packaged and fully illustrated gift book, perfect for any woman looking to lead a more fulfilling, passionate, and artful life.<br /><br />Paris may be the City of Light, but for many it is also the City of Transformation. When Jennifer Scott arrived in Paris as an exchange student from California, she had little idea she would become an avid fan of French fashion, lifestyle, and sophistication. Used to a casual life back home, in Paris she was hosted by a woman she calls “Madame Chic,” mistress of a grand apartment in the Sixteenth Arrondissement.<br /> <br />Madame Chic mentors Jennifer in the art of living, with elegance and an impeccably French less-is-more philosophy. Three-course meals prepared by the well-dressed Madame Chic (her neat clothes covered by an apron, of course) lure Jennifer from her usual habit of frequent snacks, junk food, sweatpants, and TV.<br /> <br />Additional time spent with “Madame Bohemienne,” a charming single mother who passionately embraces Parisian<i> joie de vivre</i>, introduces readers to another facet of behind-closed-doors Parisian life.<br /> <br />While Francophiles will appreciate this memoir of a young woman’s adventure abroad, others who may not know much about France will thrill to the surprisingly do-able (yet chic!) hair and makeup lessons, plus tips on how to create a capsule wardrobe with just ten useful core pieces.<br /> <br />Each chapter of <i>Lessons from Madame Chic </i>reveals the valuable secrets Jennifer learned while under Madame Chic’s tutelage—tips you can master no matter where you live or the size of your budget.<br /> <br />Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring <i>Parisiennes </i>will learn the art of eating (deprive yourself not; snacking is not chic), fashion (buy the best you can afford), grooming (<i>le no-makeup look</i>), among other tips.<br /> <br />From entertaining to decor, you will gain insights on how to cultivate old-fashioned sophistication while living an active, modern life. <i>Lessons from Madame Chic </i>is the essential handbook for a woman that wants to look good, live well, and enjoy that Parisian <i>je ne sais quoi</i> in her own <i>arrondissement.</i>
