Olive explains, “Every person has a breakpoint, no
matter how big or small the problem. For each of us, it’s
different. But when the line, The Inner Bottom Line, upon
which our unique set of values and ethics reside, is eroded
or compromised, we can be sent over the edge. Then we must
change something, no matter what the price.”

Nude Ethicist: A Simple Path to The Good Life” by Olive Gallagher
offers the reader an accessible and universal approach to
discovering and creating a better, more manageable good life.
Based on simple premises and Responsible Power, Gallagher
takes the dry, often boring, holier-than-thou subject of
ethics and illustrates its invaluable presence and application
to our everyday problems. With innovative illustrations and
worksheets, Olive walks us down a path of accountability
that anyone can practice immediately. As Dr. John Gray, PhD.,
the author of "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus," states
in his glowing endorsement of the book: “Olive Gallagher,
in a warm, humorous and conversational manner, helps us to
discover our own values to effectively face life’s
Gallagher, syndicated columnist of “The Inner
Bottom Line,”™ is a pioneer in ethics and personal
accountability. She was the creator, producer and host of
one of America’s first television series on ethics
and for nearly twenty years has shared her expertise on Responsible
Power™ and personal choices as a speaker and media
guest with thousands of audiences and viewers. She has brought
the same warm, humorous and refreshing approach to this book.

Every moment of our lives,” Olive reiterates. “It
will be our choices that determine the value of our lives.
And it will be The Inner Bottom Line that we alone will face
as a measure, a tally, of the worth of that life. Even if
no one else ever knows what we’ve done, we’ll
know. In the end, that’s what will matter.” Olive
doesn’t tell people what to do. Or tell them what they
want to hear. She tells them the truth and encourages them
to do the same. She shows them, with a few simple tools,
how to get clear, sort out the issues, consider all of the
options, and then make choices that respect and honor their
most precious and non-negotiable values. Olive clarifies, “Every
situation we get ourselves into, we end up there because
of decisions we’re responsible for making. The questions
then become: How do I get out of this? And what price am
I going to have to pay?”
