A CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title, 2014

"This concise, precise, and inexpensive book contains a trove of information useful for both general health sciences audiences and laypersons wanting a clear introduction to ethical issues in health. Each of these chapters is relevant to any health profession, not only medicine. Summing Up: Highly recommended." - M.M. Gilllis, CHOICE

"After going through many volumes of philosophy and increasing number of papers published in bioethics journals, I continued to crave for something that was easy to read, understand and above all make my students understand and apply in their daily work in the field of healthcare. I must say that with this slim pocketbook by one of the foremost exponent of bioethics, Prof. Campbell, my search for something that I can recommend to my students has ended." - Amar Jesani, Asian Bioethics Review
