How To Be Perfect: The Correct Answer to Every Moral Question

S. & S. Audio. Jan. 2022. 9:13 hrs. ISBN 9781797135250. $24.99. HUMOR
This book explains the philosophical underpinnings of The Good Place, a sitcom created by the author. With musical interludes and narration by the show’s cast and Todd May, the show’s philosophical adviser, this primer is a serious study of moral philosophy and ethics. The pop culture references are rewarding as well. Narration by this lofty group of performers makes it a lot of fun to listen to. While the content requires focus by the listener, it’s an enjoyable way to study how to be a better person.
VERDICT Those looking for a humorous jaunt may be disappointed by the heft of Schur’s subject. For anyone looking to learn more about philosophy, this is an excellent place to start.
