This book provides assistance to employees by taking a journey through the challenging world of business ethics at the ground level of the organization rather than flying through the abstract concepts and philosophical arguments at the treetop level. By examining issues and scenarios that relate directly to their work environment (and their degree of autonomy in that environment), employees can develop a clearer sense of how their corporate code of ethics relates to operational decisions made on a daily basis.
Very simple yet educational!

The book has short chapters that are easy to understand. The chapters include lots of real-world examples which makes the concepts in each chapter very relatable.
Over priced magazine
By Darren Williams on Aug 23, 2012
This book is another example of college students getting ripped off for an education. Some one needs to be accountable to students when they are forced to buy an eighty dollar magazine that calls its self a text book.
Well Organized, Clearly Stated
By Tofus Mom on Apr 19, 2012
You may be surprised by how thin this book is when it arrives. Personally, I decided to go with the electronic version after seeing this. The electronic version can only be read on Kindle Fire, iPad and Kindle for PC but it look s exactly like the print version and has the added convenience of being searchable. I had to spend about 30 minutes on the phone with Amazon customer service because the book wasn't showing up in my Kindle for PC folder but we eventually resolved the issue by un-registering the software, uninstalling and then re-installing. Definitions of key words and concepts are printed in the margins for convenience and chapters are well explained without being overly wordy. I would recommend this book to students and faculty alike.

This book was great for my business ethics class. It contained all the information I needed, plus plenty of extras. I highly recommend it.

I was in a rush to pick up this book for school. The school was charing 345$ for the book. A BOOK! That I wouldn't even entirely read or finish. So renting it through Amazon was simple and quick. No trouble whatsoever.
What a joke of a book
By Angela Johnson on Mar 23, 2014
I did learn a little bit from this book if thats what you want to call it. The chapters were easy but this is seriously just a magazine. I dont see how they can charge so much for this.

Not a good buy at all, But necessary for some courses
By Curtis on Dec 20, 2012
This book is a lot more like a magazine than a useful book. I'll be entirely honest here, I rented this book because it was required for an ethics course I was taking, and for that purpose it did wonderfully mainly because throughout the course the only time I opened it was when I needed to do a case or answer a set of questions from it. I did read some of the chapters from the book, I have to say that from what I read it was very easy to read, although it tended to approach the topic of ethical action in a very common sense black and white way. My advise would be, If you need a copy of the book for a Ethics course at a post-secondary institution the I would rent the book on kindle, Mainly because you will get more value for your money that way.

Great product! Satisfied my needs for my class. I got this on my Amazon Kindle app via my iPad 2 and did not experience any problems. Highly recommended!
e-books are great
By Matt B on Nov 25, 2012
I needed this book for an 8 week class. The e-version of the book was excellent for quickly searching key words and concepts. The price was 1/10th that of a used paperback version.
Effective and Easy
By Jaida Chaffee on May 06, 2013
The book is easy to use with vocabulary side bars for important definitions, thorough review statements for studying for tests and short chapters full of important information so it made it much easier not to get bored and zoned out when reading it along with real life side stories that fit with the chapter focus.
