Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is comprehensive and readable. It has many case studies and illustrations of the ideas shared. I have used it for 10 years. It is the best overall book on ethics for leaders." (Duane Covrig Ph.D.)

"This book examines the common character strengths and weaknesses of leaders that directly impact the ethical nature of their decisions and behavior." (Daniel Roysden, Ph.D.)

"This book is well organized and explores many unique and thought provoking aspects of ethical leadership. The notion of leader shadows and topics such as forgiveness make this text an essential tool for sparking lively debate from students on the issues of leadership ethics." (Stephen J. Linenberger)

This book was hard to follow and use for my class because there were no page numbers, only location. It was also missing some of the content- the self assessment on moral values was not complete in the kindle version. Otherwise the book was good. I like the fact that I didn't have to wait to get the book.

This was a required textbook in a graduate-level course on ethical business leadership. Compared to most of the textbooks I've had to purchase, this one seemed easier to read: it maintains a casual tone throughout, while still providing in-depth information. My favorite parts were the film notes, where they would describe the ethical issues faced by characters in various films- many of them recent. Our professor assigned us to groups and we had to watch the film and describe the actions of the characters with regards to the concepts presented in the text, which I thought was a novel method of testing our comprehension of the text.

I've never had a textbook tell me how much of a leader I am, or how much I suck at leadership. This book does both in a weird way. You can use it as a textbook, but some of the lessons here were actually pretty valuable (as an example, it helped map out a personal mission statement, which is useable on any resume). It had its moments of clarity, as well as moments of confusion, but it's a decent read.

This was the worst textbook on ethics; no university should even consider this as a sole textbook for ethics. The author is truly trying to modernize the study of ethics and fails miserably.

I had to rent this book for a class I'm taking. It is filled with the writers opinions which would be fine except it is terribly difficult to follow.
I hope I don't need to use it again in the future. It is filled with a lot of no brainer common sense "ethical" challenges and doesn't ever really reach real ethical dilemmas that leaders actually come in contact with.

Very interesting and relevant for today's ethics. The authors gives many modern day examples of both good and bad ethics role models. From the scandal of Bernie Madoff to near collapse of our banking system, Johnson discuss how so many of these executives get drawn to the "dark side" because of greed and power. He challenges new leaders to fight the urge to becomes leaders who only think of their selfish needs and not of their subordinates or customers.Find out what makes a good ethical leader-read the book!

This is book is a must-have for any leader. It's a complete guide on how to lead ethically, to determine what kind of leader you are, and to focus on how you can improve. We read a chapter at a time for graduate school which really broke down the text. Discussion, of course, lead to a better understanding of the book as well. I enjoyed the quizzes in each chapter that help you apply theory to every-day scenarios. Others also like the references to movies that showcase ethical issues.

This is an excellent book. Bought it for a college course in leadership, it will be one that will stay in my personal library. Of course, Amazon Kindle download worked awesome... had it in less than an minute.
