The major issues in contemporary moral theory, including discussion of classical as well as contemporary renditions of ethical problems are covered in-depth by questioning popular assumptions. The book draws on examples from sociobiology and game theory in explaining the relationship between ethics and self-interest. Throughout the text, the author instructs readers to think out solutions to problems by illustrating and presenting both (or various) sides of a theory and stresses the application of ethical theory as a necessity.

This text provides a great introduction to the ethics of morality. What I particularly enjoy about this book is that the at the end of each chapter you get a chance to reflect on what you've read or study with the "For Further Reflection" section as well as a "Suggestions for further reading" section. At the end of the book you also have a "How to Read and Write a Philosophy Paper" section
Readers familiar with ethical literature will notice that the title of Pojman's book is similar to that of the late J.L. Mackie's book on ethics, _Ethics: Inventing Right and Wrong_. The differences in titles reflect the differences in opinion among the two authors: Mackie was a relativist while Pojman is an objectivist. Despite Pojman's rejection of relativism, though, he does an admirable job of presenting both sides fairly. He also writes in a clear and conversational way, making this introductory text accessible to everyone. Finally, his book is comprehensive; it includes a discussion of egoism, self-interest, and altuism; the question, "Why should I be moral?"; religion and ethics; and metaethics.
Good experience!
Very opinionated book.
I was a Funeral Service Education major and I had to take a Business Law class as part of the required courses and this was the book we used.

It's a really good book and one of the few "non-major" books that I kept as a reference book...I encourage you to do the same!!!

Its a very interesting book. I needed it for a class but I read it over Christmas break and It was a different kind of read. I enjoyed it, it's great to read and learn about the ethical differences between different moral views.
I was dreading this class at first but changed my mind when I saw how well this book eases the reader into the topic. An excellent introduction to the topic of business law. A must-have for anyone seeking to work in business.
Horrible because the book is missing a few chapters that could be vital for exams.
