Overview

"Named one of the Best Business Books of 2003 by Library Journal!

Wouldn’t it be nice if all executives had a magical rabbit—like the one in the movie Harvey -- following them around reminding them to be ethical? In this charming fable, Aristotle (Ari, for short) is a pooka -- a mythical, invisible creature with a penchant for advising against dishonesty. Our hero, Edgar P. Benchley, has been able to see and hear Ari since childhood, and as he journeys through his professional life, constantly faced with challenging questions of good conduct, Ari helps remind him that nice guys can succeed . . . even in the world of business.

Much needed in these times when confidence in corporations has eroded, A Business Tale offers readers the inspiration to make ethical choices even when it isn’t easy or immediately rewarding. Following the story, the book also contains real-life examples and a 10-step action plan for ethical behavior in the workplace. A Business Tale is an easy-to-read, unforgettable ""spoonful of sugar"" to help companies and individuals digest the sometimes tart lessons of practical morality in the workplace."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Kate Wendleton, syndicated columnist, ""Kate & Dale Talk Jobs"": ""It’s tough to write a book about ethics and not get preachy. However, business professor Marianne Jennings has pulled it off with her new book, A Business Tale. She gives us a charming business fable -- including a talking rabbit -- along with her own insightful commentary.""

Dallas Morning News: ""Exactly what does a Very Large Rabbit have to do with business? In this whimsical fable, Marianne M. Jennings makes the leap quite easily."
