This is a fascinating book that came in my mailbox. While the title is provocative (it catches your attention, does it not?), the book is about moral dilemmas and ethical conundrums. Are you culpable for global warming if your individual contribution is negligible? Is it morally right to want to exterminate the human race to prevent suffering of future people? Should we sacrifice one person to save five people? Should we spare the guilty? Should we punish the innocent?

The book features 25 such dilemmas. It is meant to illustrate how the reader views morality and ethics. Responses to the dilemma are in the last section, each response ending with how you view morality and ethics based on how you felt about the dilemma.

Would you eat your cat? I know I couldn't eat any of mine. The dilemma features a lady whose cat has died. She decides to dress it, cook it, and eat it so that the cat will always be with her. Would you accept her premise? And what does your belief about the issue say about your view of morality?

I found this to be a very fascinating book.
