    1. I loved the author's inviting humor and knowledge about a country I would never had considered reading about. The Dane's happiness is almost an oxymoron in that are they really happy or just accepting of their lot in life? It's debatable since they are rather closed minded and not inviting of other people and cultures! I'm wondering why Ms. Albrechtsen stayed in that crazy country? Her story made me laugh and I actually want to hear more of her stories! The nonacceptance of other people is famil [...]


    2. Sharmi may as well be on the payroll of the Danish Government Propaganda reach out team. Most foreigners who have lived in Denmark for a significant amount of time laugh at the notion of Denmark being the happiest place on earth. What this book fails to mention is how cold and inconsiderate everyday Danes are to one another, and how xenaphobic and generally racist they are towards "invandrer", or foreign immigrants. Poorly written and clearly leaving out the truth of how cold, dark and gray day [...]


    3. The subtitle of this book, "one woman finds the secrets of the happiest people in the world," describes the author Albrechtsen's quest well. Born a 'Hindu American Princess' to an immigrant family in the Washington, DC area, she ends up an immigrant herself when she marries a Dane. Although her first Danish marriage doesn't last, she finds herself having to stay in Denmark for her daughter's sake. The adjustment doesn't go smoothly at first because of her extremely self-centered, materialistic a [...]


    4. I won this book off of a firstreads giveaways, and I am so happy that I did because this book was exactly what I needed. I've struggled with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and the elusiveness of happiness that felt like it was just out of my reach. By reading this book, I learned a very valuable lesson. I learned to not look for immediate gratification from material objects, but to search inwardly for the things that make me content. This book has helped change my perspective about the w [...]


    5. I got this free through a Giveaway. It starts out as an an interesting insight into consumer addiction: the must have attitude. The most horrifying part to me wasn't how much she spent constantly, but that she really did represent what America wants its consumers to be. She used to be a perfect shopper, always having to have the newest thing. Tons of people are just like how she was and just as miserable. While this was fascinating, I am not a materialistic person myself, so I couldn't relate t [...]


    6. Sharmi Albrechtsen's A Piece of Danish Happiness was an interesting look inside the habits and customs of the people of Denmark and her own journey as an American living in that country and trying to find her own path. I enjoyed the anecdotal stories Sharmi shares about her initial experiences as an American living in Denmark and those she shares about her daughter who is being raised enjoying many Danish customs. Sharmi's discussion about her struggles with consumerism can serve as cautionary t [...]


    7. Mixed feelings on this book. I am fascinated with Danish culture and the author has done her research and laid out some really interesting facts and anecdotes along the way. On the other hand, this book was in desperate need of an editor--spelling and grammar errors and repetitions thought the book. I also truly cringed at the way she spoke about Americans (as an American herself). We're not all like that!


    8. First of all, I didn't read the whole book.The reason: I just couldn't find a connection to the author and her materialistic life.When I read the description of the book I expected some kind of humorous stories about the Danes and their happiness but at times it turned out to be an esseay about research


    9. If you want to get to know about Danes people and their culture this book is for you. The major beneficial side-effects of happiness is the following: happy people live longer, are more productive, earn more, and are also better citizens. Well-being should be developed both for its own sake and for its side-effects. It is well written and it is worth the read.


    10. Poorly written -- she really needs an editor to go through this -- but she got her point across. Albrechtsen reveals her study of why Danes are "the happiest people on Earth." The answer lies in Danish culture and society, which in my opinion probably cannot be duplicated in this country.
