"Cooper's text promises an alternative which attempts ...to unify the disparate voices and approaches into a sort of lesson plan for motivated and well-meaning students of the professions to resolve their own 'moral muddles.'" - Christina M. Bellon, Ripon College
"This book represents the first meaningful choice in this market [of professional ethics]. Most professional philosophers cannot get themselves into a mindset to address professional and technical students. Cooper can do it without dumbing it down. Given the balance between theory and practice, the welcome exposition of Habermas, and the classicism of the examples, there is no competition that I know of." - David Clarke, Southern Illinois University
