Everyone has a moral compass that guides them in determining good from bad or right from wrong. Those judgments can sometimes be flawed, however, as a result of individuals being shaped by the people, laws, ideas, and environment around them. This accessible resource will assist readers as they develop a personal value system that can direct them through life. Not everything in the world can be absolutely certain, but what's important is making the best judgment calls possible and learning from those experiences.
