Inside `The Sopranos'In The Psychology of The Sopranos: Love, Death, Desire and Betrayal in America's Favorite Gangster Family, psychoanalyst Glen O. Gabbard puts into words what millions of people discuss every week around office water coolers. In chapters titled "Bada Bing and Nothingness" and "Scenes From a Marriage: Godfather Knows Best," Gabbard who coleads an online Sopranos chat group on Slate.com that has an audience of over 100,000 analyzes the psyche of the mob family. Despite its lack of revelatory information (e.g., most viewers have probably already picked up on Tony's split personality), loyal fans will snatch this up.
