"In Ethics in the Real World, Singer shows that he is also a master at dissecting important current events in a few hundred words. In this book of brief essays, he applies his controversial ways of thinking to issues like climate change, extreme poverty, animals, abortion, euthanasia, human genetic selection, sports doping, the sale of kidneys, the ethics of high-priced art, and ways of increasing happiness. Singer asks whether chimpanzees are people, smoking should be outlawed, or consensual sex between adult siblings should be decriminalized, and he reiterates his case against the idea that all human life is sacred, applying his arguments to some recent cases in the news."--Cover.… (mere)

Singer, Peter. Ethics in the Real World: 87 Brief Essays on Things that Matter. Textbook Publishing Co., 2017.
If you want an introduction to the philosophy of Peter Singer, the most famous living Utilitarian ethicist, you could not do better than this collection of short essays. Singer hits all the hot-button topics in contemporary ethics. Here is a sample: environmental ethics, nihilism, genetic engineering, moral progress, abortion, euthanasia, cheating in sports, honoring racists, incest, and philanthropy. Singer’s take is often controversial, but his prose is always lucid. When Singer says these essays are brief: he means it. The average length is well under five pages. Sometimes, I wish they were longer, but never shorter. 4 stars. ( )

In this book, Dr. Singer explores several controversial topics and gives his opinion. I found his section on abortion to be the most interesting. ( )

I came across Peter Singer works in Sam Harris's podcast about Analytical Altruism - where one does charitable acts or makes decisions to live frugally backed by logic and analysis . Singer's themes range from the common "vegan is the only virtuous choice" to the radical "euthanizing malformed foetus" .
Singer does make some potent observations on some topics like reduction of carbon-footprint , consuming less resources etc. where one has a moral obligation to others and future generations to which I concur ; not so much on other topics , an interesting read nevertheless . ( )

Excellent book which can be picked off in small chunks, or larger ones as you like. Very good for sharing ideas. Each essay is clear short and to the point. I booked marked the more interesting ones to discuss with my kids - many of them! ( )
