Book Description:

Few people confess easily to taking pleasure in the misfortunes of others. Maybe this is why there is no word for the feeling in English. And so schadenfreude, that beguiling German word, is borrowed to label the experience. This book, written by one of the world's foremost scholars of envy and shame, explores the emotion we dare not admit.
