Book Summary:

Discover lagom—the Swedish idea of balance, harmony, beauty, and sufficency. Our love affair with all things Scandinavian shows no signs of letting up. Having embraced the Danish concept of hygge, we’re now looking to Sweden and one of their essential philosophies, lagom. It’s best described as “not too much, not too little; just the right amount,” which, in practice, is balance—and isn’t that what we’re all looking for? In this delightful little pocket book, Elisabeth Carlsson, a Swede who has been living in the UK for many years, lets us in on the secrets of the enviable Swedish lifestyle and shows us how we can all be a little more lagom. She explains what lagom means to the Swedish and then explores how it can relate to all areas of our life: from our separation of work and home through managing our time, to how we eat, never depriving ourselves but not overindulging and avoiding waste; from discovering what makes a home more lagom in style and function, to how we sustainably take care of that home; from appreciating and looking after our body with moderate exercise and care, to our approach to life as a whole, and realising that what’s good for the world can also be good for us, too. Filled with advice and ideas, this thoughtful guide provides the key to a lagom way of living—healthy, harmonious, and happy.

Book Summary:

**FREE SAMPLER** Lagom (pronounced 'lar-gom') has no equivalent in the English language but is loosely translated as 'not too little, not too much, just right'. It is widely believed that the word comes from the Viking term 'laget om', for when a mug of mead was passed around a circle and there was just enough for everyone to get a sip. But while the anecdote may hit the nail on the head, the true etymology of the word points to an old form of the word 'lag', which means 'law'. Far from restrictive, lagom is a liberating concept, praising the idea that anything more that 'just enough' is a waste of time. Crucially it also comes with a selflessness and core belief of responsibility and common good. By living lagom you can live a happier and more balanced life, reduce your environmental impact, improve your work-life balance, free your home from clutter, enjoy good food the Swedish way, grow your own and learn to forage, and cherish the relationships with those you love.

Book Summary:

Emerging from a Marxist perspective, this book focuses on the importance of social class and the role of education broadly in relation to the possibility of revolutionary change in Sweden and beyond. Critically tracing the celebrated so-called ‘Swedish model’ from its inception to its current neoliberalisation, Maisuria explores the contours of class as part of social democratic history, culture and education, especially against the alternatives of communism and fascism. Presenting empirical research on class consciousness within a higher education context, Maisuria analyses student testimonies on their perceptions of social democracy and ‘Swedishness’ with ethno-racial dynamics, which is subjected to a Gramscian and Critical Realist derived explanatory critique for social transformation.

For the blessed few, the Vision exists by the grace of the Almighty. The rest have to gain the Vision with spiritual pursuits including prayers, meditation and encompassing spiritual wisdom. My offering to you in the form of Drishti – An Insight for Soul Enrichment will be a transformational journey from the darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge and wisdom. This book will guide you to live a life of awareness and thankfulness, develop a positive attitude and enable you to take small and pertinent steps towards a ‘better self’. The journey through this book will stimulate your thoughts, allowing you to live a more fulfilling life, the way it is meant to be lived. Life is, after all, a journey within.
