The Science of Sin: The Psychology of the Seven Deadlies (and Why They Are So Good For You) - Simon M. Laham An intriguing book with a fantastic premise. Unfortunately it gets bogged down by repetitive and thus mostly unnecessary examples of lab studies supporting each idea, eventually driving even a patient reader to think, "Make your point once and move on." Additionally, despite having so much material and a wide open field, the analysis is shallow, making the whole read feel like it's the introduction to a much deeper inspection instead of the entirety of the book.

Good but ultimately disappointing.
