The content is very useful in nature, but is written in an extremely dry and repetitive manner. The book could easily be condensed by simply not repeating the same message over and over within a chapter. It is almost repetitive to the point of thinking that the author just used a Copy-Paste command.
However, when needing knowledge on ethical decision making processes, this book will provide you with the insight needed.
Overall, save yourself the money and rent this textbook. Simple note taking will be sufficient for the information which may be needed later in life.
Also, like most ethics books, you sometimes have to be "cynical" with it's contents. As an example, Louis Chenevert, the now former CEO of UTC (very large aerospace and defense company), was quoted for his ethics statements. Chenevert actually "resigned" for his ethical lapses (to put it mildly, see link below or google search his name). He left with about $350million golden chute.
Enable black background and white letter. Amazon Kindle offers this, but only if the electronic textbooks support it as well. This one doesn't.
An easy read, but packed with information.
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 Sadly, even as new as 2010, this book already is outdated.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 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.
