Emotionally intelligent people are aware of how they and others feel. Ethically intelligent people know how to use this awareness the right way. Being ethically intelligent doesn't just mean knowing what is right; it also means having the courage to do what is right. Ethical intelligence may be the most practical form of intelligence there is — and the most valuable.

In these pages, ethicist Bruce Weinstein boldly declares that your ethical intelligence determines how successful you are in your job, how strong your relationships with friends and family are, and even how you feel about yourself. Ethical Intelligence is the first book that shows how to increase your ethics IQ in every area of your life. Through numerous real-life examples, Dr. Weinstein applies the principles of ethical intelligence to some of the toughest problems we face and reveals the essential elements of a life well lived.
