Balanced and insightful book!
I'm a college student researching integrity as a social issue. I found this book very insightful on the topic it helped me to think things through. I liked his writing style, which uses many examples from current events, recent history, literature, etc., and flows logically from point to point. Most valuable of all was his attempt to show both sides. As an example, he neither sided with conservative or liberal thinking, but instead showed the strengths and failings of both. His purpose seemed to be to spur awareness without pushing an agenda of his own -- to get people to think and talk about the virtue of integrity and its place in American society. I really appreciated this non-biased, non-reactionary approach. I will read other books by this author.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I am not involved in politics, so the most important parts of the book were the definitions of integrity and the 'tests' for true integrity. Using Mr. Carters definitions, it becomes difficult to find individuals who truly live with integrity. I think more people should read the book. However, I don't think integrity matters enough to most people.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
