Schottenfreude: German Words for the Human Condition | Author: Ben Schott

Have you ever thought, 'There should be a German word for that'? Well, now there is. From the mind that created Schott's Original Miscellany comes a unique volume exploring the idiosyncrasies of the human condition...auf Deutsch.

In which language but German could you construct the perfect word for - a secret love of bad food, the inability to remember jokes, Sunday-afternoon depression, the urge to yawn, the glee of gossip, reassuring your hairdresser, delight at the changing of the seasons, the urge to hoard, or the ineffable pleasure of a cold pillow?

Hours of fun and swathes of new words to add to your vocabulary and impress your mates!
