Lacks focus and flow

This book is just a random collection of statements on the topics listed by the UPSC in the newly introduced paper on Ethics for the Mains.
It does not serve much purpose, except the satisfaction of possessing a book that has the same title as GS Paper IV of the Mains.

Average book.

The good thing is that it gives you a skeleton of what to read.
However, the language is not that great. Things have not been simplified. Very few concepts have been explained via illustration, most are just thrown at the reader.
The case studies are also average.

The only reason I would recommend this book is because there are no other references available currently that have a holistic coverage of this paper.

Below Average

The concepts are not properly explained.
The material is ok and suitable for people who already have a background in philosophy.

nice book

the book is nicely printed book with good contents, overall a good book, can give it a look, but do not depend much on this book, one downgrade is that most of the book is essay type...which makes a little off while reading..important points needs to be searched so a little more demanding book, i would say combine this with some other materials which will make your preparation better.

Nice product

A good book for beginners. A comprehensive guide where topics have been dealt in a simple and lucid way. It provides the basic fodder over which an aspirant can develop his understanding of ethics. However, the book could have been better if the authors have had incorporated more case studies and more examples.
Nevertheless, it is still one of the best books after the Chronicle' Lexicon to deal with GS paper IV of Civil services mains exam.

Not Recommended

Dear Friends,

You'll find the explanation in this book pretty annoying. It doesn't generate interest while you read this book. Time is precious. Go for other publications if you're serious about your preparation. My friends who've cleared the examination had suggested to go for 'Arihant - Ethics' for conceptual understanding and 'TMH - Ethics' for case studies. But one book is enough according to me. Choose any one from the above.

Cheers!
Thanks.

Very Nice Book

This is a very nice book on the topic. I can't find a better book on this subject which is available in the market. Always keep in mind that no book is complete in its own. I have bought the book for Uttarakhand PCS Mains and I think it will certainly serve the purpose. Buy it.
