Michael Schur is a television comedy writer, and boy does he think he’s funny. He needs to footnote nearly every page with jokes. So, just go with the flow.
This is a fun-filled romp through ethics as philosophized through the ages. We go from Aristotle to Kant to brief divergences into the Existentialists and Ayn Rand; the utilitarians and Peter Singer; the African concept of “ubuntu”; and kind of a letdown of a final chapter on saying you’re sorry and a rambling letter to his two children.
I certainly laughed out loud several times every single reading. But I did not learn how to be perfect.
