Deborah (dalfridge) | 2 comments I need help to find a book I read several years ago, but all I have is a memory of the cover -- matte black with a large gold number "7". I do not recall the author's name, and I obviously can't remember the full title, because I have searched the Internet, here and Amazon several times over the past year, for all the possibilities: 7, Number 7, The Power of 7, The Effect of 7, The Number 7 (which is what I thought the title was), The Influence of 7, the Essence of 7, etcetera, and get nowhere.

It is a treatment of the occurrence of the number seven in society through history, and the effect of seven on our minds and actions. I think the author was a journalist, a woman, and it is written in a sort-of light scholarly tone, with some pictures/figures.

Does anyone recognize this book? Thanks for your help!
