This is a well-known translation of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics that is accompanied by a chapter-by-chapter commentary that is directed toward business executives, or those that aspire to become one. Taken together, the book provides a deep guide for how to live a fully integrated, flourishing life of excellence as a business manager. The book can be read independently, but can also provide the foundational content for a course on virtuous leadership or business ethics.
The intended audience includes students of business ethics as well as individual business managers seeking insight into how to be excellent at what they do. Most modern managers and business students find philosophy books hard to read and understand. This approach gets such readers knowledgeable with the original source material, helps them develop a knack for reading this style of writing for the future, and helps them apply the principles in the book to their own professional lives.
