The Nordic Guide to Living 10 Years Longer
10 Easy Tips to Live a Healthier, Happier Life
By Bertil Marklund
Ten straightforward, accessible ways to live a longer, healthier life.
The Danes may have their hygge and the Norwegians their back to the land culture, but the Swedes have 'lagom': an even-keeled approach to a life of balance.
Dr Bertil Marklund - a doctor and researcher at the Gothenburg University with over forty years of experience - provides the most cutting-edge research to explain the ten areas we should focus on to better our chances of a long life.
This compact guide provides wisdom from the Nordics, a region long known for its healthy and progressive lifestyle. It debunks myths on things we have been told are not good for us but actually can be: did you know drinking coffee will promote your health? Or that more people die of lack of Vitamin D than they do of skin cancer?
By providing pragmatic and realistic advice, Dr Marklund gives you the power to make a difference in your own life today and for the future.

Forget the comfort of Danish hygge; Swedish sundhet is better for your health. — Peta Bee, The Times
[Bertil Marklund's] book is far from the first lifestyle guide to indulge our appetite for all things Scandinavian. What sets it apart is its simplicity, unusual in a self-help book, let alone one written by a university professor... it is just over 100 pages and its advice is presented in a format so digestible you feel like applying it all in one go. — Peta Bee, The Times
