Product description

Review

A homage to German's capacity for word-confection . . . it bring[s] the peculiar delight of German to its author's numerous fans (The Spectator)

Schott of Miscellany fame is back with an inspired linguistic compilation in which he explores the idiosyncracies of the human condition . . . in German (Bookseller)

Ben Schott, the undisputed King of Christmas books, returns . . . Like Douglas Adam's classic The Meaning of Liff, this excellent stocking filler allows your friends and family to succinctly express their shameful love of bad foods, Sunday-afternoon depression or delight at the changing of the seasons (Mumsnet)

Ben Schott presents a miniature delight (Metro)

Ben Schott's lexicon of Teutonic definitions is a work of brilliance . . . it is the best fun (The Times)

Book Description

Ever thought, 'There should be a German word for that'? Well, now there is.
