Peter Singer is often described as the world's most influential philosopher. He is also one of its most controversial. The author of important books such as Animal Liberation and Practical Ethics, he helped launch the animal rights and effective altruism movements and contributed to the development of bioethics. Now, in Ethics in the Real World, Singer shows that he is also a master at dissecting important current events in a few hundred words.

very enjoyable shorts chapters of about 8-10 minutes each. each chapter is an op-ed piece stating a straightforward position, or asking a question, followed by several examples or related points. like a mental palette cleanser.
