About the Book

Should you take a much-needed vacation or save money for your children’s education? Should you protect the endangered owl or maintain jobs for loggers? The “right vs. right” dilemmas, in which neither choice is clearly or widely accepted as wrong, many times present obstacles that call for value-based decisions. Rushworth Kidder—the founder of the Institute for Global Ethics—teaches humans to think for themselves in order to resolve any ethical dilemma, from the personal to the philosophical.

“A thought-provoking guide to enlightened and progressive personal behavior.”—Jimmy Carter

Critical Praise
