The Book of Human Emotions : An Encyclopedia of Feeling from Anger to Wanderlust Paperback
Part of the Wellcome series
Is your heart fluttering in anticipation? Is your stomach tight with nerves? Are you falling in love? Feeling a bit miffed? Are you curious (perhaps about this book)? Do you have the heebie-jeebies? Are you antsy with iktsuarpok? Or giddy with depaysement? The Book of Human Emotions is a gleeful, thoughtful collection of 156 feelings, both rare and familiar.
Each has its own story, and reveals the strange forces which shape our rich and varied internal worlds.
In reading it, you'll discover feelings you never knew you had (like basorexia, the sudden urge to kiss someone), uncover the secret histories of boredom and confidence, and gain unexpected insights into why we feel the way we do. Published in partnership with the Wellcome Collection. WELLCOME COLLECTION is the free museum and library for the incurably curious.
It explores the connections between medicine, life and art in the past, present and future.
It is part of Wellcome, a global charitable foundation that exists to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas thrive.
