He argues, ordinary people's views are presupposed about morality, that there is one supreme moral principle it is the "Categorical Imperative" which is discussed in section two of the book.

Comments to eBook Kant's Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals: An Introduction (Cambridge Introductions to Key Philosophical Texts)
Risky Strong Dromedary
This is an excellent guide to the Groundwork, very straightforward. There are some fine discussions on topics such as the nature of natural laws, the interlocking of autonomy, rationality, and free will, and so on. It would be a good first book to study the text with (many of the footnotes are generously rich in references to other writings).
