Summary

Anyone who has ever wondered why they never seem to be able to stick to their diet, who marvels at how little work some of their colleagues get away with doing, who despairs at the antisocial behaviour of their teenagers, who can't understand how lovecheats can handle multiple extramarital affairs, who struggles to resist the lure of the comfy sofa and the giant bag of crisps, who struggles to control their mood when morons cut them up on the M4 or who makes themselves thoroughly bitter by endlessly comparing themselves to others - well, this book is for you. 

The Science of Sin looks from a neurobiological and psychological perspective at why we find it hard to resist and what can be done about it. Structured around a loose interpretation of the seven deadly sins, it is a fascinating book indeed, and one that everyone can learn something from.
