Not bad, but mostly common sense. 3 July 2014
By Adam Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Not a bad read if you're looking into ways to break down moral decisions. The book provides a clear way to identify what kind of dilemma is in front of you and by the end provides the author's insight on which decisions seem to be most beneficial. However the criteria for decision making as the author hopes the readers to take in by the end of the book is at times muddled and subjective. Your idea of utilitarianism may be to save the bus full of children but my idea of it may be to save the one doctor who might go on to cure cancer. In the end all the reader is left with is the understanding that there are decisions which they will face with no right (or rather wrong) choice and that the choice they do make will define their ethical character. Whether you choose mercy over justice or the individual over society doesn't matter as long as you have the common sense to make the decision yourself and stand by it. Whether you need to read this book or not to make "tough" decisions depends on how hard set your core values are but you'll have nothing to lose from reading it.
Mercy or Justice? 26 Feb. 2015
By Kevin Harville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book points out aptly how several of our values, such as mercy and justice as one several pairs, come in conflict. It isn't so much a good value vs. a bad value in many cases, but that our values actually conflict. He covers this subject and hopefully contributes to the perception that most people intend to do good but simply weigh one value as higher than the other. This explains why, for instance, a judge may sentence a rich youth less severely than a poor youth, viewing the crime as either a mistake deserving mercy or a crime deserving justice, depending on the judge's own personal evaluation of or affinity for the youth.
A very well written, though provoking read 18 Mar. 2013

This is the book my ethics class is based on. This author knows his subject well and I enjoyed reading the real-life scenarios presented. We have all faced right vs. right situations in our lives and this was very informative and though provoking.

I am a facilitator for this work. It is the world respected go to guide for Ethical Fitness. We lost Rushworth Kidder way too young but his work lives on.
