I loved this book! I think I read it from cover to cover in less that three days!! I used this book as preparation for an ethics class that I had to take in college. To be honest, I was not thrilled with the idea of taking an Ethics class; I am an Engineering mayor, and I am not a big fun of this kind of classes. However, this book really got me excited about ethics, It made me think and question my ethical foundations.

Helpful as a Secondary Resource

I bought this to help me get through an Ethics class. It doesn’t contain all that my textbook does, but it has proven to be helpful. Even though this series of books is written in simple terms, some of the explanations and definitions are still a little tough to comprehend, but then again we are talking about Philosophy which can be very dense material. I would recommend it as a reference book for clarity or secondary resource.

Useful book

Using this for my ethics class and it’s working out well. Cheap and useful – still can be a little confusing for my students, but there are worse books out there. Who said ethics was ever easy?

Passed my Ethics exam with a B. Used this book along with my other material. Helped to make somethings easier to understand.

Great overview

Highly recommended aside from the fact that the new field of behavioral ethics is left out. Otherwise a light hearted, easy to read book on an often dense and abstract subject.

Great book for a review of ethical theories

Not a Stand Alone

 on September 6, 2012

This is a great text to use in conjunction with John Deigh’s dense and though provoking An Introduction to Ethics.The juxtaposition of the two texts will foster healthy dialogue as the Dummies book provides context for the complexities of the study of ethics.

This totally helped me understand my ethics theories in plain English! I didn’t feel so “dumb” when I had to write my papers.
