In any struggle, you must know your enemy. Hence, Part I:
• Defines sin and distinguishes between mortal and venial sins
• Examines each of the classical seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, avarice, sloth, anger, envy, and pride
• Reveals their causes, manifestations, and more
• Provides specific advice and remedies for conquering each deadly sin in your own life
• Identifies those corresponding virtues which must be cultivated in order to rid yourself of deadly sin
Part II: features a compilation of passages from Church teaching and Scripture, along with quotes from the saints that complement and give life to the reflections in Part I.
As Fr. Kolinski makes clear— the truest medicine is found in the sacramental life of the Church. But, in addition to the graces found in frequent confession and reception of the Eucharist, the Manual for Conquering Deadly Sin will be an indispensable aid in your fight; an invaluable resource for every person serious about salvation.

I really enjoyed the book.
I will need to update this when I have finished reading but so far based on preliminary examination of the book, it looks well structured and concise. I need this book like all men in battling with vices correctly. It seems easy to go down the wrong road even with good intentions. I'm hoping this will provide me with new or even just basic information on Virtues, which based on the preface says it will
This book is wonderful. I have learned a lot in reading this book. We all have our familiar sins and this book gives a lot of detail regarding each one.
A must have! Enhance your reading arsenal with this manual! Writing is concise lists deadly sins and their remedies! The book itself feels solid.
