A train is racing toward five men, tied to the track. Unless the train is stopped, it will inevitably kill all five men.
If a fat man is pushed onto the line, although he will die, his body will stop the train, saving five lives. Would you kill the fat man?
As David Edmonds shows, answering the question is far more complex, and important, than it first appears. In fact, how we answer it tells us a great deal about right and wrong.

I got it right off
the first half was interesting, the rest of it was a bit repetitive
This book was a bit of a one trick pony.....the premise was interesting but it seemed to drag and repeat
Thought provoking and interesting
I would listen again. Though it would have been useful to have included a download booklet. However it was interesting and not at all dry considering the subject matter of ethical decision making.
The cold decision making process re: bombings in the war.
If you are interested in ethics and want a lighter overview I think you will enjoy this audiobook as I did.
