Horrible. Too many logical flaws to count and poor, roundabout (and not to mention, in places, incorrect) lessons in ethical thought. I can't believe Prentice Hall published this author.

I guess is because is a school book is not one of my favorites. It does have its interesting parts of showing the different theories of ethics...

School book that I had to read and did not enjoy. I really didn't learn anything from it.

Poor book. I was surprised that the stupid phrase "could care less," was used.
