Doing the Right Thing and Achieving All Your Goals at the Same Time is a book about people who work in offices and why we fight.  Why do we fight?  Because we're not being treated the way we want to be treated.  What do we want?  Different things but, principally, respect for our strengths and compassion for our weaknesses.  How do we give that to others and get it for ourselves?  That's what Doing the Right Thing is all about.
