I would highly recommend this book for anybody interested in learning the basic principles of medical ethics. The authors (mostly) do a great job of staying neutral on contentious issues like abortion, and they lay out a framework to help readers develop their own informed opinion on basically any ethical question. Especially helpful for anybody working in the medical field.
