Enlightening
Engelland is direct, brief, and clear in his writing. It's incredibly enlightening to see the linear way in which natural law, virtue, and Catholic Social Teaching lead to integrity and prosperity. Because it is so deep in what it really communicates, I can see this being a perfect choice for a book club, a class, or focused personal reading.

Business should be a force of good in the world!
This is a very practical and easy-to-understand book on Catholic social teaching (CST) and its application to the world of business. It is written by Brian Engelland, a businessman turned academic, who illustrates helpful information that helped deepen my understanding and appreciation of CST.

For everyone
"Force for Good" is a well-written, concise, and very readable book for anyone from an entrepreneur/small business owner to the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Engelland has written a book that shows how using ethical business practices can enhance relationships with employees and customers as well as improve a business’ chance for success. Although the subtitle of the book is “The Catholic Guide to Business Integrity," the book is certainly not just for Catholics.
