|Contents Note:|| Lust: bras, benevolence, and better grades -- Gluttony: eat, drink, and be merry, smart, and helpful -- Greed: buying happiness, hard work, and self-reliance -- Sloth: slow, lazy, and asleep wins the race -- Anger: the positive negative emotion -- Envy: how wanting what others have makes you happier, smarter, and more creative -- Pride: that which cometh before quite a lot of good stuff.
|Summary:|| Combines modern research and historical anecdotes to make a lighthearted case for living a sinful life, explaining how moderate indulgences in the "deadly" behaviors can have such benefits as higher self-esteem and better social skills.
