Being Good - Simon Blackburn

Subtitle: A short introduction to ethics

A couple of years ago when a dear friend of mine passed, I received many of her and her husband's books.  This little primer addresses the basics of ethics, a sort of introduction to the philosophy of morals.  It provides an overview of theories that question the need or existence of ethical behavior, examines the ideas addressed with ethics and the foundations of ethical thinking and philosophy.  While short (150 pages) it provides some rich food for thought and contemplation.  I may have to re-read it before I grasp even this simplified presentation.
