A Practical Approach
This is a book that supplies more examples than just 'what it is' when dealing with ethics. There is so much here that occurs in important decisions either we or our friends and relatives encounter regularly, that I recommend it to anyone who wants to have a dialogue with another person, or a group of people. It especially lends itself to group discussion. As a teacher, I borrowed from 'Ethics for Everyone' to bring out something from each of my students in discussion--including the 'quiet ones.' It's not necessarily that it's a textbook, it was not written that way, but it can be a text or just good reading for thinking and kicking it around with your friends.Was this review helpful?

Everyday Ethics - B&N university
This was a featured book in the Liberal Arts course on Everyday Ethics, a free course in B&N University. This was a 5 week course of 8 lessons where we explored ethics in everyday life. We looked at the schools of ethics, and used those different schools to show how we make decisions every day from small to large. The book is very engaging, entertaining, and interesting to read. Every ethic study should include this material as a foundation work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

It makes you think
This book is filled with a general introduction to practical ethical questions and with real-life scenarios about which you are asked the ethical thing to do. After you have pondered each scenario, you are presented with a discussion of the issues and both the author's reactions and that of at least one other person. Whether you come to the same conclusions as the author or not, the scenarios are excellent tools to make you think and the book is well worth reading and serious study.Was this review helpful?

AN excellent introduction to ethics. Prior to this book, the only books on ethics I had ever read were in the university setting. I enjoyed and learned more from this book than any I had ever read in school. The book begins with an introduction followed by case studies in ethics. As with all books, you will only get out of this, that which you put into this book. If you truly read the case studies, take positions and then reflect back on those positions (after reading the discussion), I truly believe you will grow into a more ethically oriented individual...Was this review helpful?
