Book Review

I checked out, but did not read, "Why Good People Do Bad Things", by James Hollis.The reason I did not read it is because after skimming through it and discovering it was about the Abu Ghraib prison, I was no longer interested.The title is misleading, and I was under the impression that it was about people under normal circumstances.It basically explains how normal people in the military became mentally sick and violent when given authority over people who were in this prison. It goes into graphic detail about disturbing sexual acts. I was very disappointed when I realized that this was the subject of this book.
