PRAISE FOR THE BOOK OF HUMAN EMOTIONS

"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.
"As exhaustive and readable a book on emotional vernacular as I can ever recall seeing.... An eye-opening read perusing words with a multitude of origins that capture shades and flavors of emotions....This book is all about the ambiguity, and well worth checking out."--David DiSalvo, Forbes
