"Weston's A 21st Century Ethical Toolbox is one of a kind: it radically approaches ethics and critical thinking from the perspective of everyday experience, value, and problem solving. It provides a diverse array of selections from within and without the traditional philosophical canon."--Albert R. Spencer, Portland State University
"Weston stands above the competition because of his emphasis on developing practical skills for navigating a complex, interrelated world. He includes a wide range of ethical approaches--from Kant to the Lakota to Confucius--and provides the best range of exercises and pedagogical devices that I have seen."--Tayo Basquiat, Bismarck State College
"I believe that A 21st Century Ethical Toolbox is far and away the most significant primary ethics textbook that I can select for the lives of the students who enroll in my course."--James H. VanderMey, Mid Michigan Community College
"A 21st Century Ethical Toolbox is superbly written, passionate, and poignant, and savvy about contemporary values."--Frank Ryan, Kent State University
"This is a comprehensive, wide-ranging, and erudite book that students will find accessible, interesting, and intellectually challenging. It covers all the topics and thinkers that need to be there (Kant, Utilitarianism, etc.) and some that are less standard but that enrich the ways our students can think about ethics."--Anna Peterson, University of Florida
