The book bills itself as answering perplexing ethical questions, and gets part of the way there by posing such questions and having philosophers give their thoughts. Unfortunately, the original questions and answers were taken from a website and the short form answers are often a bit shallow and unsatisfying.

For a somewhat deeper and more interesting alternative, you might consider ‘Being Good’ by Simon Blackburn.
