Publisher Comments:

Right to life, or abortion rights. Whistle-blowing. Does everyone have a price? The most difficult and revealing of all questions are questions of ethics-easy to answer from afar, but impossible when you're in the thick of it.

From the author of the 1.9-million-copy bestselling The Book of Questions, here are 300 primary and follow-up questions on commerce and politics that probe deeply into our conflicts between ideals and reality, and help us sound our own morals.

Put principles to the test: If you knew you could double your money in two years by investing in a company whose activities you strongly disapprove of, would you? Examine basic beliefs: If you knew you would not produce anything of real significance in your life, how would it change your goals and attitudes? Fantasize about power: If you could determine who could immigrate here, would you let in those who would contribute the most to our country or those most in need of refuge? Define convictions: If you were certain someone convicted of armed robbery would never commit another crime, would you choose a punishment that involved no prison sentence? Perhaps even rehearse for tomorrow: What would you do if after shaking hands on a deal for an item you are selling, someone else offers you twice as much?

Fuel those all-to-rare talks that go deep into the night-and explore and refine your values. 106,000 copies in print.

    FACE THE QUESTIONS

    Ask yourself. Ask your family. Ask your colleagues. Ask your best friend, or a stranger. THE BOOK OF QUESTIONS: BUSINESS, POLITICS, AND ETHICS enables you to ask those things that seem so easy to answer-until you put yourself in the middle: dilemmas of freedom, justice, power, honesty, money, principles, and trust.

    Provoke discussion, stimulate healthy arguments, fuel those all-too-rare talks that go deep into the night-and see if you're the same person you were ten years ago.
