Description: "Whenever a friend succeeds, a little something in me dies", Gore Vidal once observed. It's funny, it's terrible, and it's true. What is it in human nature that makes us derive pleasure from others' -- even friends' -- suffering? John Portmann explores this all-too-human foible -- what the Germans call Schadenfreude -- in the first book ever written about this universal emotion. When Bad Things Happen to Other People will challenge you to reexamine your feelings about suffering, sympathy, and the ambiguity of justice.
