In Scandalous Risks, author Susan Howatch offers a compelling and provocative exploration of the ways in which we take risks both big and small--from making decisions with our careers and our lives to taking risks with our love lives.

Howatch takes readers on a journey through history, art, and literature, exploring how risk has been at the heart of human experience. She discusses the ways that risk has shaped our world, from the daring feats of explorers to the dangerous gambles of gamblers.

Howatch provides readers with a unique understanding of the ways in which risk can be both empowering and dangerous, and how it can be used to our advantage or to our detriment. Ultimately, Scandalous Risks is a book about the power of risk, and the ways in which we can use it to our advantage or to our peril.; 8vo; 385 pages.
