Midsummer’s review round-up

It’s Midsummer: we Finns are preparing for the celebration of the longest day of the year. Bonfires are lit, feasts are prepared and of course, sauna is a staple part of Midsummer.

In addition to The Finnish Sauna Book by Carita Harju, you can read more about the health benefits of a hot sauna in Finding Sisu.

The US publication of Finding Sisu is due next week, and Vogue reviewed the book very favorably: read the piece yourself to see how you can practice your sisu anywhere in the world, even in NYC.

Coincidentally, according to 2018 World Happiness Report, which ranked countries according to GDP per capita, social support, healthy life expectancy, social freedom and so on, Finland is the happiest country in the world. What makes this small country rank so high? Is SISU a key element? In addition to United Kingdom, presses are running hot in Germany and the U.S. Most of the book’s 17 international publishers are planning the publication for 2018.

Finding Sisu has been recently featured in articles about Nordic well-being. Daily Mail wrote a longer piece on Pantzar and her book, calling sisu the “new Scandi outdoor craze from the world’s most happy nation that Finns claim boosts wellbeing and keeps you happy”.

Ireland-based Independent claimed that the “book’s entry to the self-help market is well timed. The art of bouncing back has become a hot topic in positive psychology circles while resilience training has become increasingly popular in schools and workplaces”.
