Review quote

"This book reassures the reader that ethical decisions require judgment (there is no recipe) and therefore are inherently messy . . . . Despite the inherent messiness, some ethical decisions are better than others and the choices affect who we are/become." - Michael Moch "The style of this book is straightforward and easy to read." - William Tita
