Above the Bottom Line book. Robert C. Solomon (September 14, 1942 – January 2, 2007) was a professor of continental philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. Solomon was born in Detroit, Michigan. His father was a lawyer, and his mother an artist.

ABOVE THE BOTTOM LINE focuses on the issues of the individual in the business environment, rather than focusing on large-scale, ethical decision making. Business is defended as a necessary and valuable component of contemporary life, a range of entrepreneurial ventures that should be approached in a principled, thoughtful, and honest manner.

ABOVE THE BOTTOM LINE focuses on the issues of the individual in the business environment, rather than focusing on large-scale, ethical decision making. Solomon's emphasis on corporate culture gives students direction in making personal decisions and relating those decisions to the personal concepts of social responsibility, employer rights, and other timely topics.

Book came on time as was what it was advertised to be. Book to long in chapters it takes about 2/3 hours to finish one chapter. Would not recommend it.

This book was the text for my Management Ethics class. The material presented many thought-provoking questions facing business people today, and prompted good class discussion. It includes many sidebar snippets, historical interludes, study questions, and real-life examples.

However, as expected from any text on this subject, be prepared to deal with the authors' point of view presented as fact. The weak part is that there is no bibliography, so cross-checking information is not possible.
