Scandinavia is one of my favourite places to visit. I am not sure if it is the crystal clear air or the wonderful scenery which make you feel on top of the world.
But whatever it is, the countries of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and The Faroe Islands are magical places.
Which is probably why author Michael Booth decided to call his book The Almost Perfect People! And what a great book it is! Booth has lived amongst the Scandinavians, on and off, for more than 10 years and has been left perplexed by their many strange customs.
His book tells how Booth leaves his adopted home of Denmark to embark on a journey through the Nordic countries to discover who the curious tribes are, the secrets of their success and more importantly what they think of each other.
It’s a book which will have you consumed as you take in the quirky goings-on and one which will have you dreaming of a trip to see for yourself!
