Short Synopsis
By the time readers have completed The Seven Deadly Virtues, they won't even realize that they've just been catechized into an entirely different—and better—moral universe.

Full Synopsis
An all-star team of eighteen conservative writers offers a hilarious, insightful, sanctimony-free remix of William Bennett's The Book of Virtues—without parental controls. The Seven Deadly Virtues sits down next to readers at the bar, buys them a drink, and an hour or three later, ushers them into the revival tent without them even realizing it.

The book's contributors include Sonny Bunch, Christopher Buckley, David "Iowahawk" Burge, Christopher Caldwell, Andrew Ferguson, Jonah Goldberg, Michael Graham, Mollie Hemingway, Rita Koganzon, Matt Labash, James Lileks, Rob Long, Larry Miller, P. J. O'Rourke, Joe Queenan, Christine Rosen, and Andrew Stiles. Jonathan V. Last, senior writer at the Weekly Standard, editor of the collection, is also a contributor. All eighteen essays in this book are appearing for the first time anywhere.

"[I]nteresting and thought provoking . . . endearing enough to make the reader charitably inclined." ---Wall Street Journal

"You just know that you are in for a treat when a book on the subject of virtue starts with P.J. O'Rourke and ends with Chris Buckley." ---The Washington Times
