How to Chop, Stack and Burn Wood

Wisdom from the Norwegian Woods

January 31, 2016

You'd never think a book about chopping and burning wood would turn into a runaway bestseller, but Lars Mytting's "Norwegian Wood" is a publishing sensation in Scandinavia. Lars gathers the collected wisdom on everything from how to build a smokeless fire to the art of choosing a husband based on his wood pile.  



I'm not sure who the announcer was on this segment, but she was demeaning to Lars and an embarrassment to the show. What a narrow world view she has - basically laughing at the deep knowledge and traditional Norwegian means and methods. I'm surprised Lars put up with it. You can do better folks, mostly by getting a better interviewer!

I disagree - I found the author and interviewer both charming.
