Part reportage, part travelogue, this is a fascinating introduction to contemporary Danish culture for anyone who wants to know more about the world's happiest nation.

Denmark is the country of the moment. Recently named the happiest nation in the world, it's the home of The Killing and Noma, the world's best (and most eccentric) restaurant. We wear their sweaters, watch their thrillers, and covet their cool modern design, but how much do we really know about the Danes themselves? Part reportage, part travelogue, How to Be Danish fills in the gaps--an introduction to contemporary Danish culture that spans politics, television, food, architecture, and design.

I enjoyed this light and personal account of the author's Danish encounters. Topics like Danish tv, the new Nordic cuisine, and design are organized into easily digestible chapters.

Okay, so now I want to move to Denmark. ..This is a good book for those planning on traveling to the "happiest country" or for those who want to learn more about a place that is original, innovative, and on the cutting edge of new technology.
