A fun survey of philosophical thinking, with obvious connections to "The Good Place" TV show (the actors from that show even read part of the audiobook).

Sometimes, The Good Place felt like Philosophy 101 (I say, having never been to a similar class but the viewers definitely learned alongside Eleanor Shellstrop). How to Be Perfect is the equivalent of what Michael Schur learned while plotting and writing the show, though this is less of a Good Place book and more of an ethical overview, with a focus on Aristotelian virtue ethics, utilitarianism, deontology, existentialism and other perspectives that help frame the question: what does it really mean to do good?

Professor Todd May (from my alma mater of Clemson University!) chimes in in the footnotes periodically, and I'm once again ever so curious as to how an audiobook would handle that kind of banter.

This book is decidedly placed in a time period with contemporary examples of Americans failing to take collective action for the benefit of their communities through simple measures during the early years of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic though it's hard to think of a bigger sociological example relevant to now, tbh.

Wow, truth in titling! I read this book, effortlessly absorbed the lessons Michael Schur so skillfully boiled down from thousands of years of philosophical writings, and now I'm morally perfect!

Ha ha ha ha, but seriously. Schur pulls off something quite difficult here. He's written a primer on moral philosophy that is deeply meaningful and compassionate, engagingly and intelligently written, and laugh out loud funny on many occasions. There is more insight here than you can shake a stick at -- and more jokes! Five stars from me!… (mere)
