A short and meaty ethics book. I wasn't really familiar with Aristotle's philosophy, so learned a lot. I especially enjoyed the last chapter where Vanier comments on how Aristotle's ethics speak to modern times and what a Christian perspective can add to the equation, namely compassion and equality.
