    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

    This is the first book that I've read by Tom Morris I bought it at a local thrift shop that has a lot of used college course books I read it in 2018 when I was interested in business strategy topics and wanted to see how Morris applied philosophy to modern business practices Key points from the book There is a difference between ethics and morals Morals is doing the right thing; ethics is to be seen by others doing the right thing to create the perception of morality Business leaders need to decide which one is important based on their personalinstitutional values That choice can have significant impacts to bottoms lines brands and customeremployee loyalty Philosophy is the love of wisdommeans keep learning as a lifelong passion for wisdom and truth Our purpose is change and growthcan be positive or negative Either way it helps move individuals businesses or enterprises from a current state to a future state Organizations need to embrace both positive and negative experiences as part of the growing processes

    This is a cute sweet little book While I think it veers off into the abstract than is helpful concrete examples would have been better illuminating still a worth a gander to make sure one is on the right track The material strikes a nice balance between Eastern values and Western thinkingreturnreturn The external world will never move us toward nirvana It might on the contrary drive us crazy And we can't live happily with our nerves all ajangle We need some calm We need inner peace We need some measure of personal tranuility or we'll never be able to deal well with all that the future may throw at usreturnreturnUnappreciated people feel little or no sense of loyalty or camaraderie toward those who are ignoring them and very little responsibility

    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 beforeI know it would be incredibly difficult to do but I would rather have had stories 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 been interesting 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 reuired 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

  7. JB says:

    Although Mr Morris is clearly a devote of the Latinized Aristotle that emerged as a result of Auinas'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. MJ says:

    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

  9. Steve McCairns says:

    Insightful and thought provoking Is thorough uestioning 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 even relevant now

  10. Adrienne says:

    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
