At one time or another we have all thought, 'I know what I should do, but I can't do it.' By strengthening your moral self, you can. Dr. Hass' simple yet profound message is that inside, you know what's right. Freeing yourself from the fears, insecurities, and excuses that lie at the heart of your indescretions will start you on your path to inner peace, dignity, and a renewed excitement for living.
Dr. Hass brings the concepts of dealing with guilt, handling emotions, fairness and learning to give into focus, and ties them together with compassion and love. Warmly human, full of wisdom and depth of spirit, this is a book about approaching relationships with greater empathy and kindness, and teaching others to do likewise. With DOING THE RIGHT THING, you will release your inherent goodness and heroic potential, in times of crisis as well as in the smaller moments that make up the moral sum of your days.
