I had to read it for school but it was a really easy read (much easier to read than the other book I'm reading for my ethics class). Simply talks about ethical traps and how to avoid them. Not super exciting, but that's okay.

Very cut and dried, clear and informative assessment of the many reasons why people, not just executives, behave unethically. The anecdotes and case studies help to liven the reading as well as illustrate the different traps individuals fall into.

The book is easy-to-read and highly relevant to the ethical crises that are becoming more and more prevalent in society. Unethical behavior is very costly to society. Everyone who reads this book will benefit.
