'In this earth-quaking lifestyle manifesto, I, Comrade Hyun-gi, will share with you the blueprint to a healthier, happier way of life. Juche will teach you westerners how sleeping under your desk yields a better work/life balance; why food rationing promotes a greater generosity of spirit; how sealed borders prevent the agony of long-distance relationships and why pensions prevent people from living in the moment.

So come, dear Comrade, and step free from the landmines and tripwires of capitalism and march with me towards the socialist dawn that awaits us all.'

Imagine a world where men and women are treated as equals, where the elderly are respected not neglected, where children can realise their dreams. Imagine a society, a kind and fair one, where people are free from worry and woe. Imagine a life, harmonious and balanced, where people are united by their love for their leader. Imagine that leader, wise and mighty, so devoted to his people that he is prepared to keep watch on every single one of them. Welcome to North Korea.

Juche is the guiding principle of North Korean communism: the art of self-sufficiency. How to Live Well the North Korean Way will explain how you can: solve the stresses of your commute (sleep in the office); lose weight fast (rationing and daily military parades); embrace mindfulness (through manual labor) and cure urban loneliness (three families living in one room).
