About the Author

C. K. Gunsalus is Director of the National Center for Professional and Research Ethics in the College of Engineering and Professor Emerita in the College of Business at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.


For young professionals committed to doing the right thing, even in the face of pressures to cut ethical corners, this book is a must-read. The writing is crisp, the advice practical, and the insights so 'right on' that you will want to keep the book within easy reach.--Mark Frankel, American Association for the Advancement of Science
This book is a great overview of the ethical dilemmas that new professionals typically face. But what's really important are the step-by-step instructions on what, exactly, to say when you're confronted with a sticky situation. That advice alone makes the book a must-have for any working professional.--Jennifer L. Bloom, University of South Carolina
The Young Professional's Survival Guide is so much more than a how-to. It's a gracefully written series of reflections on real ethical dilemmas that never forgets the real person actually trying to get by. It's humane, wise, and funny. I only wish I could have read it ten years earlier.--Dean Dad, author of the Confessions of a Community College Dean blog at Inside Higher Ed
The most compelling and constructive guide ever written about how to become the kind of professional who will make your parents, friends, and colleagues proud. Gunsalus shows you how to think about and avoid the little decisions that come back to haunt you, and how to make the most of the little opportunities to do the right things in the right way. Great book.--Robert I. Sutton, author of Good Boss, Bad Boss and The No Asshole Rule
A useful guide to potential ethical issues faced by young people starting out in the workplace, and how to handle them.--Publishers Weekly (09/17/2012)
