The great paradox of the human race--that we are intelligent enough to understand just about everything, except ourselves--has never been more striking, or more troubling, than right now. Specifically, we don't understand evil--what it is, how it works, and why it so routinely and effortlessly ruins our lives.

In How Evil Works , veteran newsman and bestselling author David Kupelian takes a fresh and insightful look at this ancient subject. Diving into the most electrifying news stories of the day--from terrorism and school violence to high-profile sex scandals and dysfunctional Hollywood celebrities--Kupelian explores the secret world of seduction, corruption, and daily temptations in everyday life, demonstrating his uncanny knack for breaking down complex, elusive, and intimidating topics.

Kupelian shows that once we really understand "how evil works"--not just in the headline-making disasters and crimes that dominate the news, but also in our own lives--evil loses much of its power, and the way out becomes more clear. And that's precisely why this book bears a powerful message of genuine hope.

Whatever nuggets of truth or interesting arguments are drowned out by the unapologetic bias of the author. The author's belief is so anchored by fundamental Christianity that the partial solutions to the complex problems he proposes border on ridiculous. Like most people who quote the Bible to make their point they never bother to quote the other passages in the Bible that conflict their point. This author does the same thing with the US Constitution. Better left for fundamental Christians who need a book to reinforce their belief systems. There are other books out there that offer a more reasonable and holistic approach to the concerns raised in this book.

I found this to be very informative on the current events in the US. The only thing I disliked (to a large degree) is that Mr. Kupelian repeated over and over how homosexuality was "evil" and he never explained why.
