I had to read this book for an MBA course. It provides a curious look into using an ethical decision making framework rather than a plain economic based model. If you or your company struggle with acting ethically, I would recommend you read this book. it will provide some good points on how to behave more ethically... as well as how to build the right environments to foster ethical behavior.

I did not read this by choice. I had too for a business ethics class, but it wasn't as bad a most college books. It really brings up some good ideas that a person wouldn't think up as common sense. General ethics really should be a mandatory class starting in grade school and continuing into college.
The book is well structured, but does appear to be kind of long winded at times. It also has a tendency to repeat its self, but repetition is a great training tool. Sadly, even as new as 2010, this book already is outdated. It uses Joe Paterno and Penn State as a positive ethical example more than once.

I found Treviño's work to be very well done. The book was effective in helping me gain a solid understanding of ethics in business. The frameworks laid out in the various chapters can be useful for professionals as they enter the business world.

I do feel that at times the text was very repetitive. Every few pages I seemed to revisit Enron and/or the financial crisis of '08. It got a little repetitive and detracted from the reading. In the end, though, I felt this was a valuable textbook for my Ethics course.

The e-books through the Kindle Reader are amazing. They allow you to highlight, look up information with only a few clicks, and so much more! They are even cheaper than the e-books you rent from the school bookstore.

This book is full of useless drivel. It is entirely unrealistic. It repeats things over and over again. The most ridiculous example that I have read so far is the example of "sexual harassment" in which a man is made uncomfortable by being called a "stud" by a female peer who is definitely just playing around. This man proceeds to approach a male friend (presumably the person reading this book) in the bathroom (like men actually talk in the bathroom) to complain about the woman's jokes. The "ethical dilemma" is about whether you should do anything about it or allow this guy to deal with his own problems. You are also asked to consider whether the woman in the story should be reprimanded in some way.

The book also forces you to put up with the way the people at Ford justified putting a clearly faulty car (the Pinto) on the market even though they knew that people would probably die. What a lovely way to encourage ethics. Teach people to justify their ethical failures. Absolutely brilliant. (Please, oh please, see the sarcasm here.)

I deeply regret wasting my money on this textbook because I could have easily made it through the class without it.
