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

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

Or if you prefer podcasts addressing practical questions, try The Peikoff Podcasts:

If I was lucky enough to own two, those would be:

1.Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand

2.The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

Atlas Shrugged

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