Since he’s spent much of his career dispensing sex advice in his column ”Savage Love,” it is perhaps fitting that Savage is now focusing on good old-fashioned sinning, the kind that has taken a beating by conservative scolds like Robert Bork and William Bennett. Part road trip, part memoir, and part, as Savage writes, ”Bork-and-Bennett bitch slap,” Skipping follows the writer as he tackles each of the seven deadlies, hanging out with everyone from gamblers to adulterers to the filthy rich. Lacing his anecdotes with persuasive arguments for the freedom to pursue life, liberty, and happiness in all its sinful forms, he takes readers on a journey that’s as insightful as it is hilarious.
