Read in conjunction with Prof. Sandel's lectures (online) via eDX.com. The book is good and completes the online course, the lectures are excellent!

I read this book because it was recommended in an online course on morality. It was interesting and clear and I recommend it.

Reading this book is just like taking his famous undergraduate course "Justice" at Harvard University without the troublesome parts such as term papers and exams. He is an excellent educator who possesses unique and fascinating teaching methods with lucid and illustrating examples.
Once you get into his world, you would have to rethink your assumptions and question accepted ways of thinking. Then you would probably come up with a more awakening way of thinking as well as a more enriching way of living your life.
This book is really thought-provoking and enlightening.

A remarkable book on ethics and justice that explains the greatest thinkers' (Rawls, Kant, Aristotle) mind-blowing ideas on these subjects clearly, understandably and with vivid examples. Professor Sandel has been a professor at Harvard for over thirty years and holds on of their most popular courses. Understandably so.
Anybody who reads this book will be left with only one regret: that they didn't read it sooner. I cannot reccomend this book too highly.

Excellent chapters on Kant and Aristotle, that considerably improved my understanding of their arguments.
