From the Back Cover:

"Thinking again is what this taut, incisive, bullet-hard book is dedicated to promoting."
—The Sunday Times (London)

"This book is like the Sudoku of moral philosophy: apply your mind to any of its ‘thought experiments’ while stuck on the Tube, and quickly be transported out of rush-hour hell."
—New Statesman
