This book is the result of a retired judge's curiosity about the meaning of 'moral' and 'ethical,' two ambiguous terms that mean different things to different people. Following ten guidelines, the author concludes that the terms 'right' and 'wrong' provide a more practical standard of conduct. He makes an effort to include all considerations that might go into the 'right' personal decisions about one's conduct, addressing questions such as: Does morality change from one generation to another? and, Are there any absolutes? The term 'values' leads to a discussion of family values as well as some social issues.
