    This is a clear and concise book on how smart leaders run businesses The practical application of ethics into everyday life was my favorite part, although Morris many analogies and stories keep the reader engaged throughout the short read The author weaves the ancient philosophy of Aristotle, The Bible, Confucius, and many ancient writings to show us that there is nothing new under the sun except maybe in our lack of applying wise principles in business.

    An interesting book as the author presented philosophy in a business context As someone who tries to be aware of morality, there wasn t many new ways of thinking that I hadn t considered before.I know it would be incredibly difficult to do, but I would rather have hadstories about where a company acted in a moral way and it paid off I think a lot of us like to think that good people and actions will be rewarded later on, but is that actually the case It would have beeninteresting An interesting book as the author presented philosophy in a business context As someone who tries to be aware of morality, there wasn t many new ways of thinking that I hadn t considered before.I know it would be incredibly difficult to do, but I would rather have hadstories about where a company acted in a moral way and it paid off I think a lot of us like to think that good people and actions will be rewarded later on, but is that actually the case It would have beeninteresting if the author had tried to disprove his theory Perhaps find people or companies that act in very dishonest or immoral ways and spend some time with them to see if they are happy

    Although this was required reading for my MBA course in organizational behavior, I found this not only pertinent to business, but everyday life Morris has some sage wisdom on how to find individual excellence, which will breed organizational excellence, which will in turn create societal harmony Although it sounds new age, he uses the teachings of Aristotle and other sage philosophers to illustrate that if they were CEO s today, this is how things would get done.

    This is the best business book I ve ever read Really a treatise on ethics and how philosophy really is relevant to running a business It took me about 6 months to read because it isn t the type of book you sit down and read all at once I highly recommend it to anyone in a corporate setting, especially if you play any sort of leadership role.

    I pretty much completely agree with Morris on his ideas about how business should run by using principles of Truth, Beauty, Goodness, and Unity But I felt that I didn t need a whole book on his ideas since in my case, he s preaching to the choir An essay would have sufficed However, it s very much a discussion worthy book.

    Although Mr Morris is clearly a devote of the Latinized Aristotle that emerged as a result of Aquinas s integration of the Parapetetic school with Scholastic Christianity, this is still an excellent read even though his reading of Aristotle borders on libel I think the author rightly focuses on the role of ethical virtue in business.

  8. says:

    Insightful and thought provoking Is thorough questioning of current and past business philosophy and indeed the approach we take to realtionships A little like Stephen Covey and his habits the book suggests a win win versus the zero sum game The tome is a decade old but maybe evenrelevant now.

  9. says:

    This book has some great insights, but feel that it tries too hard to be philosophical It is separated into topics, but some of the points made in each section are a real stretch from the topic For example, the author talks about things that don t necessary relate to beauty by using words that are associated with beauty I didn t enjoy reading the book, but I was able to finish it.

  10. says:

    In spite of it having good ideas, it also used a bunch of anecdotal evidence as support, instead of, like, actual support So it was lazy as far as argumentation goes But some decent nuggets nonetheless.
