Never have a book feel like a clean breath of air to me. I feel very calm and cleansed whenever I read this book. I am very thankful that I bought it. Though there are advices that I cannot perform because I don't live in Sweden, its teachings about "balanced-living" helped me to return to my core, redefine what the word "success" means, and realize that we don't need as much as we think we do to be happy and suffice. It re-stregnthen the values that I have been taught as a child, values that I have long forgotten amidst a time that dotes on extravagance and excess; that is, to appreciate frugality, simplicity, creativity, and balance to live happily, contentedly, and successfuly.
