Humbly perched atop his accidental vantage point (he never intended to be an ethicist), New York Times Magazine columnist Randy Cohen eagerly analyzes the circuitous moral landscape below and offers smart advice in The Good, the Bad & theMoreHumbly perched atop his accidental vantage point (he never intended to be an ethicist), New York Times Magazine columnist Randy Cohen eagerly analyzes the circuitous moral landscape below and offers smart advice in The Good, the Bad & the Difference. Nearly 200 reader letters, Cohens thoughtful responses, and occasional counterpoints from guest ethicists make up the bulk of this engaging collection.

Divided into seven topics, questions seek guidance on appropriate behavior at work, school, and home- with friends- in public- in the medical field- and in situations where money counts. They range from the clear-cut (seeking justification for acts of revenge), to the no-win situation (think whistle-blower). The ethicist in Cohen provides a quick, logically gleaned response- the novelist in him skillfully limns the complex and subtle relationships and the unspoken obligations that bind people together- and the humorist in him makes it all irresistible.

Each chapters Pop Ethics Quiz invites readers to exercise their own moral muscles on serious and whimsical dilemmas. While Cohen claims no formal background in ethics, perhaps his stint as a writer for Late Night with David Letterman was school enough, for he shows a remarkable ability to smoke out the wrong and carefully preserve the right, even in the kookiest situations.
