Not great

The book I didn't feel was particularly good, a lot more time should have been spent on the different schools of thought, I felt everything was very superficial in approach and more background on the main thinkers of ethics should have been provided, not even just so that we can try to match the personal lives of the people behind the theories with the theories themselves, but as to make the journey of learning the theory more engaging and interesting. the narration was quite slow at times and too dry. Actually this subject would be most suited as a Great Course lecture.
