A witty volume for anyone who’s ever asked, “Is it wrong that I’m smiling?” The Germans may have come up with the word for it, but schadenfreude—the taking of pleasure in someone else’s misery—is a pretty universal human tendency. This book takes a look at the phenomenon with numerous examples, both historical and more recent, from the worlds of art and entertainment, sports, politics, and more. It also explores the roots of schadenfreude—and its connections to everything from psychology to religion to slapstick comedy. From the author of The Snark Handbook, it’s a smart, funny look at the sometimes not-so-noble side of human nature.
