I'd say this is the standout of all of the Hygge books out there. It's not pretentious or gimmicky, nor does Pia give 'exact' formulas for Hygge. There's no "buy furniture from x Danish designer because that's the most Hygge furniture available" but practical advice on what Hygge is to each individual.

Here's what I got out of her book: perhaps Hygge is a Danish concept, but that doesn't mean experiencing Hygge can be attained only by buying Danish furniture, eating Danish food (so unfriendly for vegans), or stuffing one's face with endless pastries and confections. Take the concept and adapt it to what is Hygge for you: perhaps it's eating Indian food at the beach, or sitting on a pile of Kashmiri pillows atop a Persian rug.
