While this book would also be useful for mid-level moral philosophy courses that are not focused on a particular profession, that is not the focus of this review.
Students like and respond to Elliott's book. Chapters are laid out clearly, there is a clear progression from beginning to end, and students are left with a solid basis for what Elliott calls "systematic moral analysis."
"History of moral philosophy" purists will be disappointed by the lack of material on classical theoretical approaches such as Bentham's/Mill's utilitarianism or Kant's deontology. While I respect and teach these traditions, they cannot be covered in sufficient depth when combined with the practical/applied ethics that must be the focus of a single professional ethics course. Ideally, of course, all business, engineering, and other students would take a required introductory ethics course prior to their professional ethics course but given the emphasis in the curriculum on skills and tools over general education, that is unlikely.
