Review:

"Ethics in the Workplace: Tools and Tactics for Organizational Transformation is for any middle-management business executive who seeks an interdisciplinary text considering ethical change agents and their work - and for any college level course on the subject. It uses ethical research results from social science, psychology, social psychology and more and provides modern case studies based on recent events. Plenty of room here for in-depth classroom discussion and debate." Author: Midwest Book Review Source: The Bookwatch Published On: 2007-02-12

"The challenge with this kind of work is to strike a reasonable balance in representing the complexity of the phenomenon. Johnson seems to do this well. The book is also useful as an introduction to the field for undergraduate students." Author: Gian Luca Casali Published On: 2010-07-19

"Johnson’s book is well researched, clearly written and practical in its usefulness to leadership. It is a crucial resource for all leaders who want to improve their moral influence and their organizational ethical practices."
