   great book - careless shipping
I was happy to receive this book. Even though I paid for shipping, it was sent in a thin, gray sleeve, which meant my copy was damaged. If you're buying it for a gift, you'll be embarrassed to present it.

   Absolutely need to have in your collection
I was not sure what to expect from this book, would it be a story or poetry? None of which ended up being. It is a collection of thoughtful daily feelingsemotions and experiences that are beautifully described. Our vocabulary is limited when it comes to certain moments in our life, and we have a word to help explain them, and I loved the reasons for finding the right word to define an emotion. I immediately got out my post it tabs and annotated my favorites because they hit so close to home and I knew I would use that word a lot going forward. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a deeper connection to themselves and an understanding in knowing these fleeting emotions are not ours alone, they are not strange or put us out of place. We don't know how to define these things. Now we do!

   Gorgeous prose, profound content
This book is a must read for a society that has been taught to view empaths as weakness. It is not that. Generations of people don't know how to define their own feelings, let alone others. We have been taught to ignore our feelings, leaving us with few role models who share what we feel. We are confused about ourselves and others. It leads to misunderstandings. There is a wall around sadness, self-doubt and confusion. Have you ever wondered why people do what they do? What is this feeling like? Why can't I understand why I'm upset by it? I don't understand what is happening. The book is a dictionary. It's a gift too. It's time to read it. It might change your life. To the author. You changed mine as well. The book is a gift. It's lovely. I hope people read it.

   Magnificent and Pontent

   Snippets of profound emotional intensity
Each entry in the book describes an intense emotion that had not a single word or phrase to describe it. The feelings have names. I hope they make it into everyone's daily vocabulary.

   In awe and in love
I like the book. It's a dictionary and is one of the most interesting books I've read in a while. One with interesting definitions of feeling. 10 out of 10 is very good.

   Brilliance.
I was overjoyed to learn that this book was going to be published. It exceeded my expectations. The introduction was worth it on its own. The words in this collection will make you think about places you'd never think of. This is an absolute treasure.
