Vengeance Is Thine

The Bible has taught us to be slow to anger and to turn the other cheek.

When you run out of cheeks, however, your thoughts might reasonably turn to revenge.

Speaking of self-help books (see last post), here is one that examines the possibilities for revenge with suitable caveats and analysis of the emotion. The author is Eva Nagorski. The title is, dare I say, self-explanatory: "The Down and Dirty Dish on Revenge: Serving it Up Nice and Cold to That Lying Cheating Bastard." Link here.

Just in case you would like to sample Nagorski's wares, Newsweek was kind enough to excerpt the book. Link here.
