Editorial Reviews

Review

"In a world dominated by technology, it is comforting to have Tiffany Watt Smith serve as a guide through the dark woods of our emotions and to remind us: There's a WORD for that."
Roy Peter Clark, author of Writing Tools and The Art of X-Ray Reading

"Charming"―
Melissa Dahl, New York Magazine

"One fun and breezy read."
Susannah Cahalan, New York Post

"Have you ever felt an emotion that you wish you could express in words, but couldn't figure out quite how? Tiffany Watt Smith can help....Spend a little time learning these words, and it just may help you to understand emotions better."―
Justin Bariso, Inc.

"T
he Book of Human Emotions is as exhaustive and readable a book on emotional vernacular as I can ever recall seeing.... It's an eye-opening read perusing words with a multitude of origins that capture shades and flavors of emotions (many of the words you'll know, but even those are unpacked here ingeniously)....This book is all about the ambiguity, and well worth checking out."―David DiSalvo, Forbes

2.0 out of 5 stars Llegó en pésimas condiciones
Reviewed in Spain 🇪🇸 on December 4, 2021
He comprado este libro de tapa dura porque era una edición que parecía ser de mejor calidad que el de la tapa blanda. Al abrirlo, he visto que llegó con marcas negras de dedos en la portada y el encuadernado es TERRIBLE!!!
He pagado el doble que el de la tapa blanda para tener un modelo de veinte veces peor calidad.
