Iain King's 'How to Make Good Decisions"
Continuum is pleased to announce that Iain King's 'How to Make Good Decisions and Be Right All the Time: Solving the Riddle of Right and Wrong' is now available!

'Iain King's ambitious book is an honest attempt to think through and answer questions at the heart of morality. Anyone with an interest in practical answers to moral questions will find this book of interest too.' - James Garvey, The Royal Institute of Philosophy, UK

"How to Make Good Decisions and Be Right All the Time" offers a compelling and jargon-free guide to ethical thinking for everyday life.

Iain King presents an introduction to moral philosophy from the ancient Greeks to the Enlightenment and beyond. He argues that right and wrong need a Newtonian revolution so they are no longer a matter of judgment or guesswork, and presents a system of simple formulas for solving difficult moral quandaries. Clearly argued, the book combines new ideas with old and rips apart traditional tenets of morality, dismantling even the golden rule that you should 'do unto others as you would have done unto you'. In their place, the author constructs a new, comprehensive system of ethics, identifying the basic DNA of right and wrong and offering clear advice on how to be good in today's complicated and challenging world.

In places controversial and thoroughly engaging throughout, "How to Make Good Decisions and Be Right All the Time" is required reading for anyone with a difficult decision to make.

Iain King, a former fellow of the University of Cambridge, UK, and author of the acclaimed "Peace at Any Price" (Cornell University Press, 2006), has faced many testing decisions working in Kosovo, Afghanistan and Africa.
