Read full description of the books:
This book is at the top of my list. I went out and bought two other Tom Morris books because I loved this one so much. I truly believe that every high school student should have to read this book, and here’s why. This book isn’t just about the business world and being a good leader, it is also about finding your place, staying true to yourself, and making ethical choices. For the first time in my life I read about the differences in lies- when you should and when you shouldn’t lie. Students need to also learn how to admit their mistakes, instead of digging themselves deeper in a hole by continuing to cover it up. Another thing students can relate to and take away from the book is a respect for rules- when you should obey them and why you should analyze them in every situation since each situation may require flexibility. Loved it!
