Editorial Reviews

Review

“An engaging guidebook full of practical wisdom, based on sound ethical principles that can help us treat ourselves and others with fairness, respect, and kindness. It can help make the world a better place.”
Dan Millman, author of The Four Purposes of Life

“Dr. Weinstein's book is commendable. He has articulated with exceptional clarity the five principles that underlie ethical intelligence and provided real-life examples that will resonate with the reader. Follow these principles and you will lead with integrity and a clear conscience.”
Dr. Sanjiv Chopra, professor of medicine, Harvard Medical School, and author of Doctor Chopra Says: Medical Facts and Myths Everyone Should Know

“In this engrossing book, Weinstein, who writes the ‘Ask the Ethics Guy’ column for Businessweek.com, shows readers how to make the best possible decisions at work and at home by using five basic principles: do no harm, make things better, respect others, be fair, and be loving. Through the use of abundant case studies and ethical dilemmas, Weinstein explains how to handle errant employees who are well connected and when to advise a friend that her Facebook pictures may have detrimental ramifications. The author covers a variety of everyday situations, from dealing with difficult people to watching a friend drip food on a bookstore magazine. Appendixes offer a wealth of books, movies, and TV shows that can enrich ethical intelligence and promote dialog. Great for individual readers, this book also has excellent potential for study or discussion groups.”
Library Journal

“In a world of claw-your-way-to-the-top-at-all-costs mentality, it’s time for a paradigm shift for a better humanity, a clearer conscience in a healthy society. Ethical Intelligence offers alternatives to difficult ethical situations by calibrating your ethical choices....author Bruce Weinstein presents everyday examples with such clarity, using movies and literary references to bring his points home, that it makes one ponder the validity of one’s own ethical level of knowledge. Weinstein is smartly consistent in his use of the five principles in each scenario he presents, but gives multiple sides of each argument. This adds a deeper level of credibility since life’s situations are almost never black and white; right versus wrong....You don’t have to be, or have been, in an ethical dilemma to appreciate what this book has to offer. You just have to be alive and not a hermit!”
Portland Book Review

About the Author

Bruce Weinstein, PhD, is the host of “Ask the Ethics Guy!” on Bloomberg Businessweek Online's management channel, where he also writes an ethics column. He regularly gives keynote addresses to businesses, schools, and nonprofit organizations across the country.

More About the Author

Dr. Bruce Weinstein, The Ethics Guy, believes that the key to success in business is having not just emotional intelligence, but ethical intelligence, too. He shows how to improve your ethics IQ and leadership skills, which will strengthen the relationships you have with colleagues, clients, family, friends, and folks in the community.

He is a contributor to Bloomberg Businessweek's Management Blog. His latest book, "Ethical Intelligence: Five Principles for Untangling Your Toughest Problems at Work and Beyond," was a Silver Winner from ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Awards.

An in-demand speaker, Dr. Weinstein's clients have included the National Football League, Northrop Grumman, the Investment Management Consultants Association, the National Business Aviation Association, the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, the colleges of business of Eastern Michigan University and the University of North Dakota, and over three hundred other leading groups.

You have seen Dr. Weinstein on a wide range of CNN programs, NBC's Today Show, ABC's Good Morning America, Fox News Channel's O'Reilly Factor and Fox and Friends, Fox Business Network's Cavuto, MSNBC Live, and CNBC's Fast Money.

His work was recently featured in the Sunday New York Times, and his ethics quiz will appear in the October issue of American Airlines' in-flight magazine serving Latin America, Spain and Portugal.

He received a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Swarthmore College, a PhD in philosophy and bioethics from Georgetown University, and a National Fellowship in Leadership Development from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation in Battle Creek, Michigan. He lives in New York with his wife, Kristen Bancroft.

Weinstein doesn't dodge the hard questions and his answers are > straight forward and he explains why one choice is better than > another.

Do no harm. Make things better. Respect others. Be fair. Be loving.

Nothing Earth shattering, no blinding revelations--nothing we don't already know deep down.

But these five simple principles--which, put into practice, lead us to making better decisions--warrant far more than a read of Weinstein's excellent book; we would do well to teach his principles not only in every business school, but in each business school CLASS, exploring the ethics of each subject taught (and we would also do well to expand his work into all schools and beyond the business audience he writes for--although applying ethics to business is a very good place to start).

Weinstein does a great job of clearly and simply defining each principle, and uses many examples to help illustrate his points. The only reason I found his book challenging at times is not because of his writing or presentation, but because I myself fall short of the standards of ethics he presents (and who likes to see his or her shortfalls so clearly?). When I took his quiz in the beginning of the book, I knew what the "right" answers were, but I also knew what I would actually do in these situations, and, yes, I fall considerably short in the PRACTICE of ethical intelligence (since it is in our actions, as he points out, not our thoughts, that ultimately express our ethical intelligence). It's also telling how much I had to strain at first to find answers as to why I should increase my ethical intelligence (since, for example, I still struggle with decisions that can be ethically unintelligent, but also seem to be "good for business").

Format: Paperback
Without a doubt, "Ethical Intelligence" is Dr. Weinstein's best book yet. And this is saying something, as all of his previous publications have been outstanding. You can tell when an author cares deeply about his subject, his goals, his methods, and most of all his readers. Weinstein covers all of these bases with real, down-to-earth feeling and flair. Fundamentally, he is showing us how to lead our lives kindly in these trying and complicated times, no easy task. Many experts would chide or rail, yet Weinstein is compassionate and most understanding of human frailties. In fact, he gives many fascinating examples of his own personal behavior -- not all of them admirable -- to advance his theses. An ethical book yes, but the E adjectives that also are in play here are entertaining, enlightening, excellent, and essential.

Format: Paperback
Since my endorsement is on the front cover of the book, perhaps it is redundant here. The second caveat: This book is published by one of my primary publishers as well - New World Library. But I offer a reader review here, in support of this wonderful book, of my own accord. I do not personally know the author - and I was not asked to submit this review by anyone. It's just that I'm re-reading it (after having read the manuscript earlier) and getting even more on the second read.

I'm amused by another reviewer who wrote, "Nothing earth-shaking..." What a criterion! I wonder how many books that reviewer reads that shake his/her world? A bit much to expect from any book. Putting the principles so clearly outlined and articulated here could indeed shake our world. I'm reminded of a quip by Gandhi when asked what he thought of Western Civilization. He replied, "I think it would be a good idea."

Applying the principles that Bruce Weinstein illuminates can transform personal and professional relationships -- and whole societies. As an author of 15 books, I'm well aware that all any author can do is to offer reminders and perspectives and information to help others live more wisely and well. In this, the author succeeds with simplicity and clarity, using practical examples to help readers integrate the material. This book is a keeper, and will remain on my shelf (and influencing my life) for years to come.

in the end it all comes to one and only one moral law: Do not do to others what you do not want for yourself, and this book explain that concept very clearly.

Dr. Weinstein engages the reader as he illustrates the principles of ethics in everyday life. "Deciding" to do the right thing, and actually "doing" it are totally different. The author captures the reader's attention as he tells the stories.....a splendid book that you truly can't put down. I suspect everyone will "think" and "re-think" decisions in all aspects of their lives after reading Weinstein's latest book.

By living by these standards, stronger relationships will be formed both in personal and professional lives. I hope this book gets the readership that it deserves. Get your copy today and start letting these five principles be a part of your everyday life both at home and at the office. Truly a book for EVERYONE!
