"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
