For a practical moral philosophy, one in which the "enterprise of morality as a chain of material implication following from axioms" is foundational and embraced, try learning about Objectivism. As a student of Objectivism, I find it to be a powerful tool in everyday decision making.

For a quick 1-hour introduction, see this Dave Rubin interview with Yaron Brook:

For fiction illustrating the principles, you could read The Fountainhead or Atlas Shrugged.

Or for non-fiction, try The Virtue of Selfishness.

Atlas Shrugged

Mediocre novel, tremendous ideas. The prose is a slog but worth it.
