‘The Noble Edge’ Wins Paris Book Festival Award in Business Category
 

Seattle, WA—The Noble Edge: Reclaiming an Ethical World One Choice at a Time, by Christopher Gilbert, PhD, won the Paris Book Award in the Business category. The 2021 Paris Book Festival considers major publisher, independent publisher and self-published works in a wide variety of categories. Everything from non-fiction to travel and on to business, poetry, biography and spiritual-religious books. Submitted works are judged by a panel of publishing industry experts on the following criteria: General excellence and the author's passion for telling a good story, the potential of the work to gain a wider audience in the worldwide market.

The Noble Edge previously won 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.

Gilbert occupies a unique space in the world of personal development. His vast experience internationally, within private companies, government institutions and educational frameworks, lends credence to his messages akin to those of Wayne Dyer, whose positive effect on millions is still felt today. One of the hallmarks for an effective self-development messenger is being able communicate with people from all walks of life. Dyer possessed such a gift and Gilbert has captured some of that magic in his writings, lectures and media appearances.      


"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
