Format: Paperback
'Introducing Ethics' is an excellent introduction to the subject. I recommended the book and used it when teaching A-level Philosophy to mature Adult Education students, who enjoyed and learned much from the well-written, straight-forward language of Dave Robinson and the memorable, humourous images of Chris Garratt.
Ethics, being an important and central topic in philosophy, is as much about asking the right questions as giving possible answers. Perhaps this is why a couple of amazon "reviewers" didn't understand and appreciate the book? Perhaps they should first read Dave Robinson's excellent 'Introducing Philosophy'? Whatever, don't be misled by ignorance! This book will not only provide you with a good grounding of ethics as a philosophical discipline - it will also give you useful and practical applications for everyday life. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who has ever asked questions like, "What is good and bad?", "What is right and wrong?", and "How should we live our lives?".

Format: Paperback
This book seems to have been unfairly reveiwed.
The illustrations are of a piece with the rest of the series, and the content gives a good overview of the subject.
This series of books isn't designed to give students an easy legup, its more to introduce the absolute beginner.

I must admit this book is slightly disappointing. Although it provides a decent enough introduction in terms of the content, the layout is confusing and the illustrations aren't particularly good. It looks rather like a bad photocopy in places, and the pages appear dense and it is difficult to see detail. It doesn't hold the attention particularly well, and I found it hard to keep reading. Even when concentration is applied to decipher a page, the content isn't really worth the effort. Personally I didn't think that it was worth the hype or the price.
