About the book

Norway – what is behind the facade of conformity? In this second volume, Anthony King travels deeper into Norway to uncover the truth behind the lauded ‘Nordic lifestyle’ by persuading 350 Norwegians to tell him about their lives. Almost without exception, they described how great it was to live in Norway. He listened politely…  and then he asked them to tell him the truth. In fifteen months Anthony King amassed over 500,000 words of transcripts and hundreds of hours of recordings with the Prime Minister, doctors, teachers, students, scientists, hotel workers and people from all walks of life, of all ages. From Oslo, Tromso, Svalbard and a total of fifteen cities across Norway and from over fifty smaller locations including Sogndalstrand, Averoy, Romsdalen and more including to Sweden and Denmark.Read these conversations and see for yourself what life is really like in Norway, told by Norwegians in their own words. What they said WILL shock you.
