Reviews - What do customers think about The Moral Compass: Stories for a Life's Journey?

Liberal Scum  Jun 9, 2004
Save your editorial comments for the Newspaper and don't waste our time here. Liberals are always on the wrong side of history, Why? Because they are wrong. Simple
A THIRD SERVING ?  Apr 17, 2004
A previous reviewer wrote that Mr. Bennett's first two books on morals and virtue were wonderful, and could we look forward to a third serving? If we can it will need a thesis such as moral gambling or the virtue of pulling slots. For all his lecturing to the unwashed about morals and virtue, something is obviously missing. This joker's moral compass pointed him right into the casinos. He has no credibility. Yet this pompous, self-righteous baffoon still has the nerve to show up and lecture us on Faux News. Probably needs the money to cover the latest spread. A suggested title for the next book: The Moral Ass.
Not quite as good as the first, but well worth reading.  Jan 6, 2003
This is the companion book to Bennett's best selling The Book of Virtues. This volume is like a continuing education course for readers of the original Bennett compilation.

I have to say, I didn't like it quite as well as The Book of Virtues, but then, when is the sequel ever as good as the original? Like the original, you will recognize some of the work here. Authors such as Hans Christian Anderson, Washing Irving, Thomas Jefferson and Robert Lewis Stephenson

Like the original volume, this book should be required reading in every High School in America and belongs in everyone's home library.

are these the morals our children should be learning about?  Dec 26, 2000
This book is supposedly filled with "morals," but how can we expect our children to grow up being civilized creatures with the vile things that garbage, such as this book, instructs us and our children to adhere to. Don't buy this book unless you already have your own firm morals that you can use to judge Mr. Bennet's trash against!
Basic Tried and True Values in Short Story Form!  Jul 9, 2000
Loved it! It is a wonderful book that brings the reader back to the basic tried and true values. I love William Bennett, he makes sense of this world and cuts to the core. You can not help but agree with him. The stories told offer insight into many of life's dilema's that may arise from joy, hurt, love, anger, and basically a sense of fair play. At any time there is something to be gained by each story told. It is very well written and attention grabbing. Worth the purchase!
