Format: Paperback
For college students that do not have much time to read, this book offers the basics on the major ethical positions from around the world -- not just from the west! There are nice biographical pieces and the position summaries are broken up nicely. For a short introductory ethics course this or the Clark and Poortenga seem to be targeting our contemporary students well.

As a college student, it could be quite daunting to take on certain philosophy texts. Some can be completely dry. Some could just drone on and on. But even to an individual with limited interest in ethics will find this book rather accesible. There are many moments in this book where the average student will say, "oh, I get it". So whether you are buying this book as a requirement or to fullfill you curiosity in ethics, this book is a great buy. Even though I purchased this book as a requirement, it will always have a nice little home on my bookshelf. Zeuschner rules all!

I had the privilege of taking a class by Dr Zeuschner years ago. His book was included in our text, naturally. This book was such an in-depth read and never once does it make you feel like he's being condescending when explaining complex issues in various religions. Dr Z wrote in a manner that made religions of the world feel much more accessible to perhaps a reader that is a non-believer. Great read. I still keep this book on my shelf and reference it from time to time.

This is the worst textbook filled with hateful propaganda. It is time for Professors to teach from original texts and not some nobody's version for they totally miss the truth and instead spread lies. If your professor says to buy it, suggest something worthwhile.
