The Almost Nearly Perfect People by Michael Booth

This book's full title is The Almost Nearly Perfect People, Behind the Myth of the Scandinavian Utopia. I personally would like to live in this area as I would find the conformity rather stifling. The Nordic countries have done the best for any country that has tried socialism. They seem a rather practical people and they do not let debt get too far out of whack. Michael Booth is on Twitter and has his own website.

There is some good reviews of this book on Amazon if you scroll to the bottom section of this site. There is also a good review in The Guardian by Mariella Frostrup and she is right, the book is a light hearted approach to the Scandinavian counties, but he does touch on some serious subjects.

There is short video of an interview via WSJ of Michael Booth.

An index of the books I have reviewed are on my website at Books. Follow me on Twitter.
