Seattle, WA, USA – October 4, 2021 – The Noble Edge: Reclaiming an Ethical World One Choice at a Time, by Christopher Gilbert, PhD, was selected as a Business/Self-Help finalist for the Canadian Book Club Awards. According to the CBCA website, the organization looks for “great books which that are worthy of telling your friends about. We’re looking for thought-provoking stories that prompt insightful conversations. We’re looking for poetry that makes us feel the rhythm in its words, business/self-help books that can guide us and, children’s books that our kids ask for before falling asleep. Give us what readers want. A damn good book.”
The Noble Edge previously won a Paris Book Festival Award in the Business Category, a Pinnacle Book Award in the Mind, Body & Spirit Category, the Gold Medal Literary Titan Award, one from the Hollywood Book Festival in the Business category and a 2021 International Impact Book Award in the Leadership category.
Unlike many academics, Gilbert spent a number of years in the private sector as an entrepreneurial businessman. Having all his hard work, and that of his partners and employees, destroyed by an unscrupulous and predatory company sent him towards a new path in life. This is how the study of situational, decision-making ethics came into his life and brought forth a powerful motto, “There is no right way to do the wrong thing.”
Gilbert’s missionary zeal for enlightening people rich and poor, high and low, book smart and street wise, comes wrapped in striking ability to communicate effectively on many levels. Listening to the radio interview linked below demonstrates a speaking style reminiscent of Wayne Dyer or Harv Eker or Robert Kiyosaki. The Noble Edge, according to Gilbert, “represents an advance in our character” and will establish “a world that supports consistent good choice making.”
“The Noble Edge is a remarkably inspirational self-help book that will provide readers with the tools they need to make better choices in their lives. I recommend the chapters on the wisdom of ethics, truth of ethics, subjectivism, relativism and transformation. Christopher Gilbert, PhD, writes as if he is having a one-on-one conversation with his readers.” – Literary Titan, 5-Stars

“Gilbert highlights the pitfalls of relying on ethical “isms”-subjectivism, relativism, consequentialism, virtuism, and universalism-illustrating his points through dilemmas faced by an imaginary choice maker and stories about his own business challenges.” – Publisher’s Weekly Review
“This book invites you to go beyond yourself, to be a beacon of trust and honesty, to set the right example, and do the right thing.” – Susan Keefe, Midwest Book Review, 5-Stars
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.”
“The Noble Edge is fast paced, easy to read and covers a lot of ground. I have not seen a distinction between morals and ethics as well delineated as in this work. It’s a great primer for corporate and individual social responsibility.” – Mike Philips, Board Chairperson, Alaira Capital Partners, London, Past Chairman and CEO Russel Investments
“In this very readable and practical approach to ethics, Chris Gilbert brings his years of experience, his substantial knowledge and research and his quick wit. Chris has made the topic approachable and straight forward.” – Joe Lawless, Executive Director, University of Washington, Milgard Center for Leadership and Social Responsibility
