Peter Singer is undoubtedly the most influential philosopher in today's world. Each essay presents the readers with objective arguments to support the claim. His arguments and conclusions are hard to refute and are very compelling. A must read for someone who loves pondering over things happening in this world. Not recommended for 'you live only once so anything goes' kind of people.
