Jim Underwood takes us to a place few ethicists have dared venture: the land of moral clarity. Without fear and mindful of the consequences of moral relativism, Dr. Underwood provides the simple steps for ethical analysis that can guide those in business to better decisions -- decisions that also happen to be grounded in ethics -- real ethics -- the old-fashioned kind of "Yes, Virginia, there is a right and there is a wrong answer." Dr. Underwood wants us to reach the right answer and he makes a convincing case for doing so. The pleasure comes from his much needed dismissal of moral relativism and all its dangers.
