Lars Mytting's Norwegian Wood: Chopping, Stacking, and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way has sold over 200,000 copies in Norway and Sweden. The book is both a rustic's and manly man's guide to using your 2 hands to generate heat for warmth and cooking, and a genuine exploration of what Norwegian Wood publishers call "man's age-old predilection for stacking wood and passion for open fires."
And I thought this poster on peeing with morning wood was the best wood how-to I'd ever seen.
Norwegian Wood is as much a peek into the delightful idiosyncrasies and artfulness of Scandinavian culture as it is a straightforward tool for mastering kindling, log, and flame. But just like books available on the Danish concept of Hygge, Norwegian Wood will load you up like an ax-split open-square woodpile with useful information and practical skills to live by even as it is charming your Fjallraven pants off.
