“1000 Feelings for which there are no Names” by Mario Giordano is a book which you can open to any page and be stunned by what is written there. It is not a self-help book. It is not a book which lends advice. It is just a book about life and Giordano has just observed and given thought to feelings and more than anything else, has given them names.
For instance, something as simple as this: “The regret over something that got broken”. We know it is regret. We know that. Maybe somewhere down the line, we are too scared to name it, perhaps thinking that acknowledgment will make us weak.
