The book is easy to follow and easy to understand. The written language of the book is not "stuffy," by this I mean it is not written in a style where you're wondering who the author had as his target audience. I enjoy the clarity, and the expertise with which the book was written.

The reading enlarges one's thinking by helping the person develop ethical sensitivity, become aware of the intricacies and all the interconnected parts when making decisions, as well as understand the complexities in regards to not only making the right choice but implementing it. The reading is excellent and definitely useful.

I don't really care for this book. The author takes too long to get to the point. She tends to ramble on for two paragraphs and then writes, "In other words..." Well why didn't you just say that in the beginning?

But one thing I do like are the examples. It helps to put the theories into "real world" applications.

This was a required text for grad school. It's a great basic text on ethics that covers both APA and ACA. It addresses long standing ethical issues as well as more recent issues. This is one I will keep on my shelf for future reference.

My outstanding professor knew what she was doing when she chose this book. I learned much about ethics in matters such as online counseling. When I become a counselor, I will not do it! I was also impressed with what was taught about areas such as conflict of interests. I hope that this book will do revisions at least once a year as new things come up.

As far as reading about ethics goes (and the fact that different states have very different laws), this book does a good job of overviewing the 5 ethical precepts underlying ethical behavior (maleficence, beneficence, fidelity, justice and autonomy) and how they should interact with the ethical codes of your profession.

Format: Paperback
I downloaded the kindle free trial version and unfortunately it is not available on the kindle, but only on kindle Apps for IPAD. I checked it out there but controls for font size, background color and so forth are unavailable. It is essentially a scan of each page of the book, and it ends up being really small fonts. You can magnify, but you have to do it every time you turn a page. In my views, the kindle version of this is pretty useless, or to use Steve Jobs type words, it's s***. And for no good reasons, other that the publishers are still in the stone age.

The content of this book is fine and my rating not a reflection of it. If you use a Windows 8 tablet device to read Kindle books, this book is NOT available for that app. It requires you use the "PC App" which, for a Windows 8 tablet is terrible. The print is too small, touch screen functionality is minimal, you cannot type notes in as the note dialogue box will not bring up the tablet keyboard, etc, etc. I simply spent more time fighting with the app than I did reading the book. In order to be productive, I had to go and get the hard copy edition instead.
