"I enjoy the author's writing style. The text material is organized and well written and delivered in an interesting manner that will keep the reader's attention. The level of difficulty is appropriate for my students. The concepts are clearly explained, and I believe, the features are most appropriate for easy understanding and enjoyment."
"Ethics tends to be a rather dry subject matter. I like that Kent Kauffman has taken the time to find interesting real cases to spice up the text and make it more interesting for the students. Instead of using the same tried and true examples this text brings us into the 21st century with relevant examples."
