Overview

When Good Things Happen to Bad People offers an irreverent, fast-paced, fact-filled compendium of fifty case studies of notorious villains from Attila the Hun to Dick Cheney who triumphed in life despite, or because of, their dastardly deeds. This book is the perfect foil to Harold Kushner’s international bestseller When Bad Things Happen to Good People.

So why do good things happen to bad people? Maybe a certain number of baddies are simply going to get their share of good luck. Maybe “the devil” is running the universe and he or she likes pleasing his or her favorites. Maybe God is playing a joke on bad people by rewarding them on earth and then punishing them in an afterlife. Or maybe Edmund Burke was on the right track when he said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” For evil to triumph less, it follows that good people need to do something—like exposing wickedness when they are confronted with it. As the saying goes: "Sunshine is the best disinfectant.”
