Thanks for a compelling book on ethics, well done....
This is an Excellent book. It puts to task the current form in which business is done and questions even the very foundations of the modern economy. Very illuminating.
This book is very good in the sense that you learn about the behaviour, attitudes, morals, etc of people in organisations as well as communities as a whole. It also helps in dealing with different characters of people in the workplace.
