The practical application of Wetherill's Right-Action Ethic explained in this book is about performance. It is not primarily about a person or celebrity. It is about leadership and successful living. People who have read this book find it full of solutions based on principles as old as time itself but as new as the moment they live in.
Many popular writers warn that something in America has died. Perhaps so. But the leadership spirit of America will impact the whole wide world when business managers apply the leadership principles stated and illustrated on the pages of this book. While it is true that America is at peace, the Cold War is over and the USSR is defunct, it is equally evident that, individually and collectively, choices are being compromised, prejudices preserved and financial hardships continue unrelieved. The good news is that there is a shaft of light piercing the gloom a light that will lead Americans into a new day of world leadership. This book is about that shaft of light. It is about performance, and when you read this book you will find it full of solutions based on principles as old as time itself but as new as the moment you live in. Readers will learn that what underlies family values and ethical behavior as well as financial success are basic principles guaranteed to work in every situation. This book is not about a famous person or celebrity. You will not find famous quotes from well-known persons past or present. It is a book about the experiences of ordinary people who are applying principles for successful living and, as a result, are enjoying huge success in their careers, with business associates, family members and one another. These principles were learned from Richard W. Wetherill, a man whose vision helped shape the lives of these ordinary people, and whose insights have shed a great light on the corporate pathway.

About the Author

During his lifetime, Richard W. Wetherill was often described as a person who was scores of years ahead of his time. His associates and members of his research group realize that his day has finally come. Increasingly, it is becoming fashionable to be honest and right. Author Richard W. Wetherill is known for his many contributions as an author, teacher, executive, and management consultant. Over the six decades of his own highly successful career, he inspired many executives to find success and helped many companies to solve their most complex management problems. In 1929, Mr. Wetherill discovered a natural law controlling people's personal and interpersonal behavior. The law states that a person is required to think, say, and do what is right in order to get a right result. It further states that when he has a personal problem or trouble, it is because something is wrong about his thinking, conversation, and behavior. In addition to stating the law of behavior, Mr. Wetherill explains the penalty that results from attempted violation or disregard for that law. As with all natural laws, the behavioral law is self-enforcing. The person who deviates from what he knows is right installs, in the recesses of his mind, the wrong thinking he uses to justify his behavior.
