It is an excellent introduction to the subject for biosciences students: clear, comprehensive, relevant, fair-minded and even-handed, obviously written by a skilled teacher with a mature understanding of current developments and thinking in both science and ethics. The text is studded with thought-provoking facts and telling quotations and the author's ethical matrix meshes well with the detailed contents of the chapters on specific topics. * Professor Kenneth M Boyd, Biomedical Teaching Organisation, University of Edinburgh *
Ben Mepham is to be congratulated on producing a very readable text covering such a variety of topics in bioethics. I would recommend this text to tutors and final year undergraduate bioscience students as both an introduction to the concepts of bioethics and in providing further depth and points for discursive thought. * Joyce Overfield, School of Biology, Chemistry and Health Science, Manchester Metropolitan University *
I am impressed with Mepham's knowledge of bioethics and his ability to articulately and intelligently communicate that knowledge to introductory students. His logical, objective approach in discussing a subject that is widely misunderstood, and often feared, is timely and important. I can think of no other textbook that I would rather have in the classroom when asking students to leave their opinions, biases, and intellectual baggage at the door and consider bioethics in a meaningful, thoughtful, and substantive manner. * Jason Johnstone-Yellin, University of Idaho, USA *
