I have only just picked this up and I'm hooked! This is a book that requires you to think quite a bit, so it's best read in small bites, with plenty of time to digest the ideas thrown at you. I am not done with it, which explains why I am still hesitating between a 4 and a 5 star rating.

Great thought-stimulating content on a subject which is as perplexing and dynamic as one can be... an entertaining read encompassing many of philosophies most celebrated ideas, relating them to our world's context.

Entertaining little book that challenges your ethics in many different categories. Every dilemma is backed up with a real example. Good to use as a supplement.
