5.0 out of 5 stars If you're thinking about reading this book, read it., 8 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do? (Paperback)
I can't recommend Sandel's brilliant work highly enough.

A brilliantly readable book, and one of the few books which totally deserves all of the extremely good reviews written on the front cover, back cover and inside page! And I will now be re-reading the last two chapters again to have a solid understanding of Sandel's view.

Sandel really is a brilliant teacher. 'Justice' ties together philosophy and politics perfectly. He gently guides you through some moral theory and combines it with perfect real life scenarios (one of the reasons he's become so popular). It's also nice to read the communitarian (Sandel doesn't like this name, but I'll use it anyway) critique of Rawlsian liberalism straight from the horse's mouth.

I'll be recommending this book to pretty much anyone I talk to about books over the next few days/weeks/years.

There's also a lot of extra material which can be looked at if you enjoy the book, or if you have come across Sandel's brilliant work through BBC4 or the 2009 Reith Lectures.

If you like philosophy, politics or even economics, definitely read this book! (Disclaimer: Michael Sandel has not hired me to promote his book).
