A Piece of Danish HappinessNlearning American values like materialism and ambition to reach a higher goal of everlasting happiness was a rocky transition With the help of her Danish friends thousands of blog fans and Oprah’s Lifeclass Albrechtsen found the true meaning of happiness and shed her destructive materialistic way.

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 in and day out life in Denmark can be Not mentioned in the book Denmark is a country that works relentlessly at keeping people out who won't contribute to their bottom line and almost as tirelessly at attracting highly skilled foreigners to come work pay ridiculous tax to help support their aging citizenry and un productive youth The book leaves out how the immigrant population within DK is reproducing at a MUCH higher rate than the native Danes and as a result the cultural demographic within the tiny country is uickly shifting away fro traditional Danish and it drives the locals nuts Avoid this nonsense at all costs Waste of time and money
