Placing the concept of revenge in historical, social, and psychological context, this compendium is packed with hilariously shocking stories of wronged wives, sacked employees, and angry car drivers. Grouping stories together in sections such as sporting revenge, the revenge of Mother Nature, and the revenge of and on the powerful, thisbook also reveals which gender is most likely to settle a score on an unthinking whim and which prefers to patiently plan and deliver retribution. A discussion of the personality types that are most likely to commit acts of reprisal and a look at the role fear and anger play in motivating an act of revenge are also included.
