What's the word for....?

This intriguing little book is a digest of new words for emotions we all feel, at one time or another, but find difficult to express.  Like any standard dictionary, it certainly isn't read all at one time.  There's much to ponder here, and the realization that others share the same sentiments is a balm. 
For linguists, philosophers and anyone else who wants to better understand the human condition.
