This current print version provides additional references and information relating to the various segments of society discussed and the subject of integrity. There continues to be incidents in the news relating to integrity in records and management of various companies. This book is an aid to understand the requirements of having integrity from a personal aspect and as part of an organization.
The following comment is from a reader of the electronic version, which is the same as the print version 2nd edition. "What makes this book stand out in the ethics literature is the expansion of the term "integrity" beyond the actions of individual human beings. AuBuchon looks at, for instance, the integrity of computer data, engineering/manufacturing, education, politics, and journalism. In his detailed examination of the Society of Professional Journalists code of ethics, he includes attention to the crucial but often-forgotten idea of compassion for the people involved in a news story.”
Dennis uses his experiences to bring the subject of integrity to real world situations that help the reader focus on how things occur in society today. The mechanism provided is one that has never been established in this format in previous books on the subject. His experiences add a personal touch that helps understand the subject. The information presented includes the definition and characteristics of integrity followed by a discussion of each. Some segments include political integrity, integrity in the news, real estate integrity, integrity in education, personal integrity, integrity on the job and integrity in the Bible.
The chapter on education identifies that integrity in education is important if the children that will be the leaders of society tomorrow are to be well prepared. They must be able to face the challenges that will come their way as they enter the workplace and know how to react to various situations. Some facts presented involve such things as some teachers teaching outside of their recognized credentials.
In summary this book (Integrity: Do You Have It? 2nd edition) provides a common set of criteria to evaluate the existence of integrity both in ourselves and in society in general. References are provided for additional resources on the subject of integrity. This book is enhanced with additional comments and references to published articles written by Dennis on the subject of integrity.
