Seattle, WA, USA – July 15, 2021 – Christopher Gilbert, PhD, author of The Noble Edge: Reclaiming an Ethical World One Choice at a Time, was featured on the Dr. Pat Radio Show. An international award-winning talk radio host and CEO of a successful motivational company, Dr. Pat Bacilli discovered, through reading The Noble Edge, that she and Christopher Gilbert are kindred spirits. Both found their current calling after experiences in the corporate world sent them in pursuit of more rewarding endeavors. Gilbert became a college professor and international ethics consultant, while Dr. Bacilli sought to create a better world through the media, public speaking and other means. She is famous for her keen interviewing skills.
“Trust is the Foundation of Our Personal Freedom,” says Christopher Gilbert, PhD.
Dr. Pat opened the show by noting that her return to school, in concert with Gilbert, found her researching the ethical and moral lapses of people and institutions and how that situation might be altered. She asked, “And what happens when we enter the world, and we find that integrity is crumbling? I’ll tell you what happens, you get a book called The Noble Edge: Reclaiming an Ethical World One Choice at a Time by Dr. Christopher Gilbert. And when you get a book like this, and you look at what it means to bring the pieces back to the forefront, then you truly step into a level of truth that is freeing. Dr. Gilbert thank for joining me today and thank you for writing this book.”
Such an opening allowed Dr. Gilbert to relate his own story of disillusionment. He was running an innovative food company whose idea was stolen by potential investors and destroyed overnight. This jarring experience sent Gilbert on a journey he never expected to take, one partially chronicled in his book. Gilbert and Dr. Pat’s symbiotic experiences allowed the conversation to build on itself and unfold valid observations on many aspects of society. A good interview which was all too short. Gilbert’s ability to pull multiple, highly relatable stories from his worldwide experiences is truly fascinating.
In this increasingly toxic moral era, trust and authenticity grow more precious by the minute. The truth is that our most rewarding business, personal, and family relationships are founded on honesty. The Noble Edge invites readers into an inspirational conversation about building trust that is spiced with personal stories, humorous anecdotes, and invaluable guidance.
“The important ethical issues of today are not found in arguing about which schoolyard bully is the most unethical,” says Gilbert. “That’s the smoke in the moral room. The fire is our misguided belief that ‘good’ people make the good decisions and ‘bad’ people make the unethical ones, when we all go up and down the moral ladder every day.”
“Wow! I couldn’t put it down. The book is brilliant, inspiring, filled with humor that informs and amazing personal stories. If I were still Dean of the USC Law School, I would assign it to every student.” -The Honorable Dorothy Nelson, Past Dean, University of Southern California Law School, Retired Chair of the United States Baha’i National Spiritual Assembly
“The Noble Edge is truly an inspirational book, encouraging us to become the best versions of ourselves, and to advance into a society that rests on trust, respect, and ethical choices. Highly recommended.” -Rachel Song, Editor and Writer
“Ethics isn’t about information, it’s about transformation,” says Gilbert. “We need a national conversation about what it means to do right in business and in life despite the personal, professional, and social pressures to ignore what is right in favor of what passes for ‘success’.”
