Almost Nearly Perfect People: Behind the Myth of the Scandinavian Utopia

Almost Nearly Perfect People: Behind the Myth of the Scandinavian Utopia
SKU: HBK156P
Journalist Michael Booth has lived among the Scandinavians for more than ten years. In this timely book he leaves his adopted home of Denmark and embarks on a journey through all five of the Nordic countries to discover who these curious tribes are, the secrets of their success, and, most intriguing of all, what they think of one another. Why are the Danes so happy, despite having the highest taxes? Do the Finns really have the best education system? Are the Icelanders as feral as they sometimes appear? How are the Norwegians spending their fantastic oil wealth? And why do all of them hate the Swedes? Along the way a more nuanced, often darker picture emerges of a region plagued by taboos, characterized by suffocating parochialism, and populated by extremists of various shades. This bestselling book is now available in paperback.
