Should you take a much-needed vacation or save money for your children's education? Should you protect the endangered owl or maintain jobs for loggers? How do you handle questions such as these? We frequently face ethical dilemmas in our daily lives, and few have trouble with the right vs. wrong choices. However, the right vs. right dilemmas, in which neither choice is clearly or widely accepted as wrong, many times present obstacles that call for value-based decisions, and that's where we often need help. Kidder -- the founder of the Institute for Global Ethics -- teaches us how to think for ourselves in order to resolve any ethical dilemma, from the personal to the philosophical. Unique in its approach and full of illustrative anecdotes, How Good People Make Tough Choices is an indispensable resource for arriving at sound conclusions when facing tough choices.
