The Book Of Human Emotions from the Author: Tiffany Watt Smith. A thoughtful, gleeful encyclopedia of emotions, both broad and outrageously specific, from throughout history and around the world. How do you feel today? Is your heart fluttering in anticipation? Your stomach tight with nerves? Are you falling in love? Feeling a bit miffed? Do you have the heebie-jeebies? Are you antsy with iktsuarpok or filled with nakhes? Recent research suggests there are only six basic emotions. But if that makes you feel uneasy, suspicious, and maybe even a little bereft, THE BOOK OF HUMAN EMOTIONS is for you. In this unique book, you'll get to travel across the world and through time, learning how different cultures have articulated the human experience and picking up some fascinating new knowledge about yourself along the way. From the familiar (anger) to the foreign (zal), each entertaining and informative alphabetical entry reveals the surprising connections and fascinating facts behind our emotional lives. Whether you're in search of the perfect word to sum up that cozy feeling you get from being inside on a cold winter's night, surrounded by friends and good food (what the Dutch call gezelligheid), or wondering how nostalgia evolved from a fatal illness to enjoyable self-indulgence, Tiffany Watt Smith draws on history, anthropology, science, art, literature, music, and popular culture to find the answers. In reading THE BOOK OF HUMAN EMOTIONS, you'll discover feelings you never knew you had (like basorexia, the sudden urge to kiss someone) and gain unexpected insights into why you feel the way you do. Besides, aren't you curious what nginyiwarrarringu means?

The Book Of Emotions from the Author: Salman Akhtar. Practising psychiatry, psychotherapy, and psychoanalysis for over forty years and being an avid reader of books pertaining to the human mind convinced Salman Akhtar that most good books in this realm are difficult to read for lay-persons. Matters are made worse by the fact that books that are readable succumb to oversimplification and glib advice-giving. As a result, the seeker of knowledge about the intricacies of emotional life finds little that is meaningful to read. It is this lack that The Book of Emotions is trying to address here. Written in a simple, easy-to-understand style with everyday examples and anecdotes, the books explains the meaning and characteristics of some of our inherent emotions.

Y Mee S A B C Book Of Emotions from the Author: Wanda ARGERSINGER. Why Me? Who hasn't said that at one time or another? We all say 'why me' in certain situations or when we are experiencing certain emotions. The Y-Mee doll, introduced to the world in August 2008, was the first in a line of products that attempts to help in those 'why me' moments. Now, Y-Mee's wisdom has been written in a book that goes farther in helping those in 'why me' situations. Y-Mee's A-B-C Book of Emotions takes a tongue in cheek look at various emotions from A=Angry to Z=Zealous and everything in between. Each letter and each emotion gives a unique definition and a plan of action to deal with whatever the emotion may be. Y-Mee's are standing beside each letter to provide support, guidance and a smile. Y-Mee's A-B-C Book of Emotions is a short book, designed to be small, informative, and helpful yet full of humor.
