This item is very informative for understanding ethical principles and procedures established in a business setting. I think this book is a wonderful concept that helps individuals understand ethical principles and procedures to follow in daily transactions and why ethical principles were established which ensures accuracy of financial statements and financial reporting. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to pursue a career in accounting in addition to the concepts of safeguarding the company's assets by ensure accuracy in record keeping, income statements, statement of owner's equity, and statement of cash flows, the balance sheet, and the adjusted trial balance. It gives you step-by-step instructions about why ethical principles were established which was the result of the scandals of 2000 which involved fortune 500 companies like WorldCom, Tyco International, and Enron which an the time didn't uphold ethical principles in their place of establishment when financial reporting to the SEC were inaccurate and investors lost millions of dollars due to dishonesty. Over a series of events after this scandal, it was necessary to establish laws that would minimize inaccurate financial reporting and consequences for accounting firms that were involved in reporting fraudulent financial reporting is where the SOX Act was implemented were accounting firms were charged huge penalties if they continue to provide false information while reporting statements to the SEC or Internal Revenue Services.read more
It really encouraged me to always be ethical in business settings and always uphold honesty and integrity to the best of my ability.
This book is a difficult read at first. The size of the book deceives you. The print is a little small. Other than the size of the font, I would not change anything. There is a lot of information on ethics and the authors gave as much as possible without overload. More than likely, this book will be accompanied by other materials to give a better understanding of these chapters. I believe that is the most effective way to gain an understanding of the issues discussed in this book.read more
I used this for Business Ethics, a required course for seniors as business majors. The university required this book along with other material to enforce the issues presented.
this book discussed issues which may arise in the workplace between different people. It helped because it discussed more problems then I could think of.read more
The situations which were discussed could have been talked about in less professional terms. They were discussed completely and thoroughly however some of them were a little complicated to understand.
