    1. Johnnie says:

      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.

    2. Nancy Schober says:

      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 thinking return return 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 nee [...]

      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 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 auth [...]

      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.

    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. JB says:

      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 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. Steve McCairns 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 even relevant now.

    9. Tarn 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. Jordan Munn 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.

    11. JP says:

      It s interesting but not as much of a how to as I had hoped Morris explores four elements in the context of good business as itemized by Aristotle and others Intellectual truth , aesthetic beauty , moral goodness , and spiritual unity.

    13. Lori Grant says:

      An optional read biograpy on leadership for knowledge workers, managers, directors, C levels, and entrepreneurs.

    14. Shane says:

      An interesting book A slow slog to read though Full of so much, but written in a way that makes it somewhat hard to understand on the first reading.

    15. Richad Dzingai says:

      quite a beautiful piece, brings a whole new perspective of the art of business , the beauty of the workplace

    16. Brian says:

      Good book on why morals and ethics are very important to creating a very successful business.

    17. Mnkparker says:

      If corporate America operated under the principles in this book, it would be a better world with a lot less stress.
