The only thing Nordic about this book is the author and the fact that the title features the word "Nordic."

I believe I've fallen victim to a clever marketing ploy, betrayed by my own Scandiphile tendencies. But how could I help myself when the cover is so aesthetically pleasing, and promises of frolicking through the Nordic landscape await me inside.

There is hardly a mention of any Swede, Dane, Norwegian, or Icelander to be had. Aside from a few studies here and there scattered throughout that

The only “Nordic” thing about this book is the author.

I came across this book by accident at a Book Fair, and with me having a general interest in the Nordic lifestyle, it grabbed my attention.
Now, being honest, I think this book contains a lot of general knowledge that most people are already aware of, and really, a good deal of common sense. When it comes to our health, I think some people tend to ignore the negative health implications caused by a bad way of living. It isn't until something major happens, that we begin to listen up.

I probably wasn't the ideal reader for this book. I've spent a lot of time researching health and happiness in recent years, so I may have been expecting too much to hope that this book would have anything life changing or new to say -- and it didn't. But if you're a health and happiness newbie and you're looking for a quick crash course on what does and doesn't lead to a better life, this slim little guide (143 very tiny pages!) may be just what you're after. It's encouraging, evidence-based, a ...more

Nordic? Really? These are tips I've seen in countless books and blogs. I see almost nothing specifically Nordic, other than a couple statistics. On the plus side, it's a super-quick read. Why? Because there's little to glean. Unless it's your first self-help/health improvement book, you'll already know what BMI is; how stress affects you; and how to increase healthy food while decreasing trans fats. If you want a great book on the subject, there's several other good books to choose from. My top ...more

Quite a feat to make a book this short so tedious and redundant.
Kelly Jones
Interesting, but pretty basic common sense sort of stuff. Some helpful charts in there to encourage healthier living.

I loved this! It's not a groundbreaking book but it definitely inspired me to improve my life, and I'm grateful for that.

I feel like the title is misleading, because the author only mentions Nordic countries a few times, but his advice and tips are more universal and I don't mind it. I already knew some of the things that he mentions but they gave me that extra motivation to go and start changing my life for the better right now. I also like that he backs up the content of this book with his med

I found that there was an overuse of scare-tactics in these tips - practically every other sentence mentioned diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and death. As a diabetic reading these tips, I had to laugh at tip number nine - “Be an Optimist.” Hard to be optimistic when you examine how your diabetes causes high blood sugar, which in turn causes inflammation, which then causes death. The basic nature of the tips examined definitely left something to be desired.

Over the last 5 years or so I have been very interested in healthy lifestyle changes and nutrition. I've watched plenty of documentaries and read articles and blogs. I try to stay up to date with new research in these topics, which is probably why I didn't find a lot of this information to be particularly eye-opening. The book discusses the benefits of eating and drinking healthy foods and drinks, keeping your stress levels low, exercising, sleeping regular hours etc. A lot of these concepts are ...more

The title of the book was what triggered my curiosity and as the title of the English translation, it is clear that this book had a good marketing team. The book wasn't bad, the information about the title's topic was very kept to a minimum. Some blog posts have written a more concise and extensive overview on the topic. However, a little repetition never hurts and there were a lot of things I had changed over last two years that made me feel good about my choices and the path I am on. Furthermo ...more

I was taken in by the pretty cover in the shop... having read the 'little book of hygge' it had a similar feel to it and so I just had to give it a go.
Like other reviewers have said, I was slightly disappointed that this was not as focused on the nordic life as I had hoped. It would have been lovely to see some representations of nordic culture, foods and lifestyle that I could have compared with my own depressingly habitual daily existence. There were plenty of facts and figures to back up the

I started reading this book during holidays and after 50pages i had to stop as i could not read about what research says about death ratio if you do this or stop doing that.

I came back to this book last weekend and read it in two goes and this time i really liked it ... may be apart from "what research says" parts.

I took some short but valuable and easy to implement lessons from each chapter. The most important ones for me
- there are 3 typem of activities and it is good to do all of them :-)

I've been dipping in and out of this guide since I got it in May. It's one of those books I feel you don't necessarily have to read all in one go, which is nice sometimes.

There is no new groundbreaking discovery here, I think most readers would already know a lot of the content that Dr Bertil writes about but it's still informative as we see the knowledge from a different perspective.

I like the clear, simple, no nonsense, uncluttered style it is written in. Reminds me of Ikea.. :-) and this is w

As the title suggests, Dr Bertil Marklund, a doctor and researcher at the Gothenburg University, shares ten tips that promise not only a happier but also a healthier life. He talks about the benefits of physical exercise (Tip 1: Movement Rejuvenates The Body), good sleep (Tip 3: Sleep Fortifies), sunlight exposure (Tip 4: Sun – but not too much), healthy diet (Tip 5: Eat yourself Healthy) and good oral health (Tip 8: Oral Health gives general Health). He shares tips on how to rip these benefits, ...more

Like others who have read this book they have noted it's simplicity (which, admittedly, was intentional as per the statement given in the introduction) but, more disdainfully, it's basic nature and thin link to the nordic way of life.
If you would like a little practical boost to get you started with some overall health improvements (spoiler alert- eat well, don't smoke, exercise!) then give it a read, however don't spend £10.99 on it. I read it in my lunch break in the bookstore and I'm glad I d

This little book is a good affirmation for things that most people already know about healthy living. I don't understand why it's gotten fewer stars than I would give it, as many people could use the hints listed here. I found the chapters on food (and lists of healthy foods) and optimism especially beneficial, and I liked the way he backed things up with scientific studies. Worth looking at, if you want to improve your health and longevity. ...more

Fairly basic quick read. It's optimistic and not too strict about exercise and drink and so on. However the "Nordic" bit is somewhat thin, more of a selling point than any actual substance. The cover is very nice and perhaps makes this look both more "Nordic" and substantial than it actually is. This would probably be a 3* for me except that I think the author minimises the effect of genetics and over-emphasises our own control over our health and mortality. ...more
