Review:

The root of ethics involves conflict, and how it is resolved embraces ethical concerns. Katcher’s title examines the concepts of ethics, chivalry and the Samurai code, blending Eastern and Western philosophies as it considers ethical decision-making processes and advocates individual responses. Doctors, lawyers and managers are the targeted readers here, but the social implications of the philosophy and approach should not be overlooked. -- Midwest Book Review
