Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This intriguing book by the author of The Best Is Yet to Come: Renewing American Judaism adroitly addresses the ethical issues that face U.S. businesses in the wake of the 1980s ``greed is good'' mentality, which led to massive governmental deficits and layoffs by debt-laden companies. Dosick focuses on Biblical concepts because, he states, by bringing these enduring values into the modern marketplace ``the contemporary business world can be transformed into a place where . . . decency and dignity are the everyday guides and goal.'' Dosick's ``ten commandments'' are variations of the traditional teachings of a myriad of religions. His thoughts on treating employees and customers with respect, providing a positive work environment and putting work in the proper perspective are moving, as are his ideas on marketing and employee development. Fortune Book Club, Quality Book Club and Jewish Book Club alternates. (Sept.)
David Rouse
Dosick has been called the video rabbi because of his "Video Synagogue" cassette tape, a 45-minute televised worship service, which sells for $49.95 and has been an alternate selection of the Jewish Book Club. He has also hosted a religious call-in radio program and is a visiting professor of Judaic studies at the University of San Diego. One of Dosick's specialties is business ethics, and here he offers his own 10 commandments, precepts taken directly from Hebrew scriptures that apply to doing business and "bring meaning and worth, values and ethics, into the modern workplace." Each commandment forms the core of a lesson, which Dosick colorfully illustrates with stories, vignettes, legends, and biblical examples.
