Surprisingly the author of the book isn’t Swedish. She is British, but she has lived in Sweden for the past 13 years. According to her lagom is about enjoying everything in moderation – in a healthy, balanced way.

In the book you can find beautiful pictures, famous positive quotes and plenty of advice on how to live like a Swede. However, if lagom is about trying to find balance in life I doubt you can do it solely by reading one book, but at least you can steal an idea or two.
