King, a noted author and Cambridge U. fellow, has written this guide to ethical decision-making in everyday life by drawing upon classic philosophy as well as his own experiences in Kosovo, Afghanistan and Africa. Written for general audiences, this book offers simple formulas for telling the difference between right and wrong in an increasingly complex world by introducing a "DNA" model to analyze moral questions. The author uses cultural touchstones such as Richard Nixon, Mother Teresa, Sherlock Holmes and the child who always asks "Why?" to provide practical advice on how to be "right all of the time."
