The Good Place creator Michael Schur writing a How to Be Good book

  • Simon & Schuster announced today it will publish Schur's first book, tentatively titled How to Be Good: A Definitive Answer for Exactly What to Do, In Every Possible Situation, which will use humor and philosophy to determine how we should deal with the large and small ethical challenges we all face every day. "Schur will take readers on a journey through the 2500-year discussion of ethics, explaining and poking fun at these grand ideas, and sketching a roadmap for how we ought to act," says the book publisher. How to Be Good will also feature contributions from Clemson University's Todd May, one of two philosophy professors who  consulted on The Good Place. “What drew us immediately to Mike’s book is the same quality that has drawn millions to his work on television—its ability to be profound and funny at the same time," said Simon & Schuster's Eamon Dolan, who will serve as Schur's editor. Schur said of the book: “I’m thrilled to be working with Simon & Schuster on this project. I don’t know how to write a book, but Eamon assured me that wouldn’t be a problem.”
