    Morality is practical

    This highly enjoyable book is based on Ayn Rand's morality of self-interest. "The purpose of morality is to teach you, not to suffer and die, but to enjoy yourself and live." -Ayn Rand The author shows how a proper morality must be based on certain facts of reality, facts that makes human life and happiness possible.

    The Objectivist Alternative

    The primary achievement of this book is a complete demolition of the typical Conservative claim that without God there is no morality. Craig Biddle does an excellent job of refuting all sides (the religious, as well as the personal or social subjectivist) of that particular mistaken proposition in all their manifestations and proves his points both with authoritative quotes from the various advocates and helpful examples that serve to clarify the ideas in a manner far better than I've seen in virtually all presentations of this sort. In addition Mr. Biddle does not just stop there but spends the rest of the book presenting the proper alternative to the false God/Anything Goes dichotomy: A morality based on reason and principled self-intest. He shows how morality can be derived from facts and what the specifics of such a fact-based morality would look like. He concludes by outlining the essential principle of politics -- individual rights.

    A guide to living morally and rationally

    If you want to learn how to truly live your life in a way that is meaningful and virtuous, get this book. Biddle shows how to live life using an objective code of moral values where Man¿s life is the standard of value. He uses solid examples and leaves no room for subjectivism. Recommended for those both familiar and unfamiliar with Ayn Rand¿s philosophy of rational self-interest.
