Review quote

"Written in a highly readable style, the tone is almost conversational, so the material is very approachable. This will be viewed as a great advantage for instructors who find it a challenge to get their students to actually read their assigned text." - Amy Moorman, Doane College

"There are two primary approaches to teaching ethics. One approach is based on a foundation of moral principles ....A second approach is to engage students in a conversation about ethics... The authors of this text take the second approach,... writing in a conversational style. I've frequently felt that many textbooks should be written in this style. Thus, I found the sample chapter to be an easy, friendly read." - Paul L. Schumann, Minnesota State University, Mankato
