We might not like to admit to it, but everyone – even the gentlest of souls – derives a secret guilty satisfaction from the misfortune of others. Tim Lihoreau has made it his business to uncover the myriad ways in which schadenfreude rears its wicked head, including: Turparphilia: To delight in the less than aesthetically beautiful nature of a friend's offspring. Nimbuphilia: To delight in driving wildly through a kerb-side puddle which you know to be too close to a pedestrian. Famaphilia: To delight in witnessing a celebrity in an everyday pickle. Schadenfreude: The Little Book of Black Delights uncovers the shady details of our darkest pleasures. Naming, defining and explaining each one in turn with fascinating insights and erudite wit, it drives at the heart of what it is we find so irresistibly delightful when faced with the other people's discomfort. Whether you actively pursue them, only think of them or even try and deny them, your blackest delights are in here somewhere...

I saw this book at a friend's house, thought it looked fun, meant to buy it, looked it up on Amazon, discovered that there was a Kindle version, and being a cheapskate, bought that. Well, I made a mistake. My mistake was not in buying the book, but in buying the eBook version. This is, as a friend might say `a bathroom book'. It's not really for sitting down and reading cover to cover. Like Schott's Miscellany, it's a small volume best administered in small doses. Dip into it for a few pages, then again on your next visit. Don't forget that a queue might be forming outside the door, desperate to use the facilities. You are supposed to be attending to serious business, so try not to giggle or guffaw - it will give you away.

The author is clearly a clever chap and might even have passed his `O'level Latin at school. Not sure if there is an `A' level in Dog Latin, but he'd have cruised that one with a distinction.

Through his erudite, tongue-in-cheek wit I have discovered that I am a callidinfanophiliac, an extrunophiliac, suffer from inauctophilia and am definitely guilty of fracurrophilia. Don't tell my family, but they probably already have suspicions. I have also clearly identified friends, family and acquaintances who are chaophiliacs, nimbuphiliacs as well as indulging in nothesophilia and potestaphilia. It's quite serious! One of my friends has such a bad case of niovemophilia, he has a book coming out about it.

This small book is not without controversy. Tim Lihoreau has clearly put his neck on the line by `outing' Mrs Windsor aka QE2 as a vigintiunphiliac. I suppose that's his MBE for services to dog Latin and humour out of the window?

All good fun, but don't be a cheapskate like me. Buy the hard copy version. It's better and handier if there's a paper emergency. Five stars!
