Are emotions really universal? Or do they change depending on time zones and latitudes? Where is the boundary between love and lust, hate and indignation, envy and jealousy, sadness and melancholy?

The book is an easy access reference guide to emotions, it looks back in time to the roots of how we express ourselves and how we communicate the feelings which have always stirred within us.

A small handbook, useful for questioning our daily lives, which helps us give a name and throw light on our emotive chaos and fully live the beauty of everything we feel in the best way possible.
