Oct 2, 2012

The New York Times Magazine's original "Ethicist" Randy Cohen helps readers locate their own internal ethical compasses as he delivers answers to life's most challenging dilemmas. His new book: Be Good: How to Navigate the Ethics of Everything, is organized thematically in a Q&A format, challenging readers to think about how they would (or should) respond when faced with everyday moral challenges, from sex and love to religion, technology, and much more.

Randy Cohen wrote "The Ethicist" column in the New York Times Magazine for twelve years. He has appeared regularly on NPR, and is host of the radio series Person Place Thing. He is also a 4-time Emmy Winner for his writing on Late Night with David Letterman and TV Nation.
