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 le mot juste 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?
