It's also way too small for the price. I've read longer novels that were a 1/10th the price of this one. Not to mention, it's paperback too. I was shocked when I got it and realized I paid $120 for that. I bought 2 other books, both 3 or 4 times the size, in better condition, and in hardback, and they were cheaper!
Maybe it's a great book when it's actually used right, but it wasn't used right for me. It was also way too expensive. This book is maybe worth $20 or $30 at most.
This book can feel like a chore to read at times and appears come off as a sociology book in disguise. Nevertheless, engineers cannot escape from writing or reading. The classic cases of engineering ethics are present here and the matters are explained with sufficient detail. Challenger, Columbia, Katrina, Pinto, and Citicorp to say the least. There are also more cases at the end to write research papers on. Altogether, I have to say, this book and course are an impact that broaden and conscientize the engineer or any profession for that matter. .
The book is mostly case studies and does not offer helpful suggestion into ethical practice.
