Critical Acclaim
‘This is a terrific book. It takes seriously the idea that to do ethics effectively we have to, in Dewey's words, “get inside the problem”. The book is a treasure trove of ideas and techniques that will help decision-makers really understand themselves and the ethical issues that they face.’
– R. Edward Freeman, University of Virginia, US

‘This is an intellectually serious self-help book on ethics. Ladkin knows philosophy and is not afraid to use it to help readers reflect on their ethical perceptions, reasoning and actions.’
– Joanne B. Ciulla, Rutgers University, US
