A practical hands-on ethics book designed for students enrolled in business ethics and professional development courses located primarily in business departments, continuing education and as a service course in humanities


This Canadian textbook offers a combination of ethical theory and practical application in the form of discussions and exercises geared to the major ethical issues facing the various professions.  It encourages self-reflection by asking questions and leaving space for answers within the text, and through worksheets for students to fill out.   Because it is a combination textbook-workbook, it is especially suited to students who are hands-on learners and faculty who are looking for an alternative to densely-written texts.

Editorial Reviews

"This book fills a void in the market for accessible but comprehensive introductory ethics texts for business students. I no longer have to walk the line between over-facing my students with complicated philosophical theory, and cheating them out of exposure to the rich history of ethical thought." - Pamela MacCormick, Business Department, Nova Scotia Community College   "The text is well written and balances in its approach to theory and practice" - Geoffrey Prince, School of Business, Centennial College of Applied Arts and Technology   "The text is very user friendly and provides relevant useable examples. It is written in language most students can adapt to and comprehend" - Professor, Con Ed Business Management, Fanshawe College   "I thought the book represented a very good balance between theory, actual current situations and providing students with the opportunity to practise/discuss ethical situations" - Michael Piczak, Business, Mohawk College   "Having read all of the chapters, I can say that there is material for everyone here, the serious academic student, the continuing education student, and the working person taking a workshop at their employer" - Edmund Baumann, Business School, Humber College
