Summary

This insightful and brilliant analysis of ethics teaches readers valuable skills in evaluating tough choices and arriving at sound conclusions. 
“A thought-provoking guide to enlightened and progressive personal behavior.” 
—Jimmy Carter 
An essential guide to ethical action updated for our challenging times, How Good People Make Tough Choices by Rushworth M. Kidder offers practical tools for dealing with the difficult moral dilemmas we face in our everyday lives. The founder and president of the Institute for Global Ethics, Dr. Kidder provides guidelines for making the important decisions in situations that may not be that clear cut—from most private and personal to the most public and global.

    The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson outlines the author's journey through the mental health industry, particularly as it pertains to psychopathy. Along the way, the author meets the creator of a psychopath checklist, used by others in the field to profile possible psychopaths.
