This solid, penetrating work, obviously deeply felt by the author, is likely to be well received by boomer managers. --Library Journal
"The book is well-crafted, readable and interactive. --USA Today -- USA Today
"So much of making sound decisions comes from asking smart questions. Defining Moments asks all the right questions in a way that will help any manager who wants to reach judgments that are morally sensitive and professionally sensible." --George Stephanopoulos, Visiting Professor at Columbia University, political analyst for ABC, and former adviser to the Clinton Administration
Defining Moments outlines a refreshingly realistic approach to ethics in management. Badaracco shows how managers can choose, without sacrificing their values, between multiple acceptable solutions--not the one right answer that most ethicists claim exists. It is a book to be put into practice, not just read and set aside. --Andrall Pearson, Chairman & CEO, Pepsico Food Division
Critical decisions between shades of right are inescapable in our professional and personal lives and do create defining moments' for each of us. Badracco brings a clarity to the decision process that I did not think possible. --Gail Long, Senior Vice President, Group Executive, Large Corporate, BankBoston
Finally, here's a book that helps us prioritize our personal and institutional loyalties and responsibilities in decision making, wend our way through real-life moral mazes, and develop our character in the process. A crystal-clear, practical writer, Badaracco provides a new and unorthodox approach to issues of great complexity. He offers pragmatic assistance to real people weighing conflicting duties, ends, and virtues of business life. --William McLennan, University Chaplain, Tufts UniversitySee all Editorial Reviews

A terrible read. It's great if you have the desire to read a book on morals and ethics that never really answers any questions or asserts much of anything. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
I was a student at the same MBA program where Badaracco teaches. I overlooked his class then, but 15 years later I came across this gem and loved it. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Amazon Customer
It's an interesting book but the author doesn't get concrete enough. More case studies would be more helpful than his analysis of philosophers.Published 7 months ago by K. Policy
