More About Is It Still Cheating If I Don't Get Caught? by Bruce Weinstein; Harriet Russell
 
 
 
Overview

It's not always easy to figure out what's right or wrong.

Your parents say one thing, your teachers say another, and your friends say something else entirely. Is it okay to tell a friend that her cookies taste awful? How should you respond when you see someone cheating on a test? And what's the big deal with downloading music for free?

Whether it's about the use of the internet (copying homework papers?) or sports (steroids?), friendship, family, school, or affairs of the heart, kids often find themselves asking: What's the right thing to do? With five simple and clear ethical principles as a foundation, and plenty of out-of-real-life dilemmas as examples, Dr. Bruce Weinstein offers answers and an approach to things that teens will find useful and reliable. With a good dose of common sense, this accessible life guide proves that, while no one can give you all of the answers, Bruce Weinstein can give you the tools to make the best decisions you can -- anywhere, anytime.

Weinstein, aka the syndicated columnist “The Ethics Guy,” addresses adolescent ethical dilemmas using a set of five “Life Principles” (Do No Harm, Make Things Better, Respect Others, Be Fair, Be Loving). Posing theoretical situations, Weinstein makes assessments based on the principles (buying student essays online violates the first principle by “diminishing your educational experience”) and suggests an ethical course of action (“If this is the book you're assigned... this is what you have to tackle”). While readers will identify with many of the issues raised (trying marijuana, downloading music without paying, breaking up with someone by e-mail), some may find the approach didactic. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 10–14. (Apr.)
