A practical hands-on ethics book designed for students enrolled in business ethics and professional development courses located primarily in business departments, continuing education and as a service course in humanities


This Canadian textbook offers a combination of ethical theory and practical application in the form of discussions and exercises geared to the major ethical issues facing the various professions.  It encourages self-reflection by asking questions and leaving space for answers within the text, and through worksheets for students to fill out.   Because it is a combination textbook-workbook, it is especially suited to students who are hands-on learners and faculty who are looking for an alternative to densely-written texts.
