With the latest headlines in the business world, it's more important than ever for managers to gain the skills to identify and solve ethical dilemmas as well as promote ethical behavior. Trevino offers the tools to follow an ethical approach to business. The book now includes an integration of the concept of value in several chapters to better tie the material together. Several of the chapters have been reorganized for a smoother presentation. New discussions are included on finding a moral voice, how the culture becomes real in the organization, and corporate social responsibility. An integrative case on Wal-Mart also guides business managers through the application of key concepts.

Very comprehensive and thorough March 21, 2011
This textbook is full of real life examples which make this a better read for such a dry topic as this. This ethics book is a good comprehensive read. I needed this text for my college course on business ethics. It has definitions, case examples. It is easy to find information and it is well written and presented. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a core foundation of ethical understanding.
