Description
"A thought-provoking guide to enlightened and progressive personal behavior." --Jimmy Carter

An essential guide to ethical action updated for our challenging times, How Good People Make Tough Choices by Rushworth M. Kidder offers practical tools for dealing with the difficult moral dilemmas we face in our everyday lives. The founder and president of the Institute for Global Ethics, Dr. Kidder provides guidelines for making the important decisions in situations that may not be that clear cut--from most private and personal to the most public and global. Former U.S.senator and NBA legend Bill Bradley calls How Good People Make Tough Choices "a valuable guide to more informed and self-conscious moral judgments."

Description
All of us face ethical choices. Sometimes they're easy: One side is wrong and the other is right. But how do we handle the really tough "right vs. right" dilemmas, where each side has strong moral arguments and we can't do both? This book helps us build "Ethical Fitness"(R)--a values-based decision-making process so definitive that it's now a registered trade mark. Rushworth M. Kidder, founder of the Institute for Global Ethics, teaches us how to think for ourselves in order to resolve ethical dilemmas ranging from the intimately personal to the broadly philosophical. Unique in its approach and rich with illustrative anecdotes--updated with examples of real-world conflicts from today's political realm and from Dr. Kidder's own observations--"How Good People Make Tough Choices" is an indispensable resource for spotting, understanding, and resolving our toughest decisions. -- Back cover.
