Critique: "It is probably now the single most comprehensive bioethics textbook available This is a very fine book indeed." ( BMA Medical Book Competition ? Programme and Award Winners, September 2008)

Serve[s] as a reference text of concise reviews and as a medical ethics sampler. Such approachable original essays by authors who are experts in their respective fields will serve as excellent teaching tools, and I anticipate referring house staff, nurses, and therapists to them .Serve[s] as a source of intriguing insights on topics not commonly on the clinical ethics table. It offers clinicians and medical practitioners a starting place to understand key concepts and problems in medical ethics. As such, it is a valuable reference text. (Respiratory Care, April 2008)

"This is a well though out book covering a wide variety of ethical problems in healthcare. It provides those interested in healthcare ethics a great resource for starting their inquiry and would be a valuable inquisition." (Doody?s, November 2007)
