I saw the author speak in Ottawa he spoke very straightforwardly and said some very interesting things so I bought his book Almost finished on Chapter 28 out of 40 and it is really inspiring I can't judge his original theory as a proper philosopher might be able to but Iain King is fantastic at expressing ideas in ways which appeal to someone who thinks about cats than Socrates like me He explains what the main philosophers said and why their ideas were important but without talking down to you The things he wrote about charity really made me uestion what I do and I loved his examples like Sven This is an excellent book for anyone who wants both an introduction to ethics which is the study of 'right' and 'wrong' hence the teasing title to this book and is looking for some original thoughts It is clever without making you feel stupid
