The Book of Virtues: A Treasury of Great Moral Stories, sometimes just called The Book of Virtues (ISBN 0-684-83577-0), is an anthology edited by William Bennett. It was published on November 1, 1993 by Simon and Schuster, and was followed by The Moral Compass: Stories for a Life's Journey in late 1995.
The book is intended for the moral education of the young and is divided into the different virtues namely self-discipline, compassion, responsibility, friendship, work, courage, perseverance, honesty, loyalty and faith.
The Book of Virtues includes passages from C. S. Lewis's 1943 philosophy book The Abolition of Man, which may give a good indication of it's underlying philosophy.
