The feeling of shame is reviled and uncomfortable, but it is a natural part of being human. Shame is what we hope others don't know, or what we dread they know about. That which makes people think less of us. What happens in the brain and body when this feeling occurs? And why do we inflict shame on others? A funny and accessible book including examples from literature and research.
