Format: Paperback
Kass asks the fundamental question "do we wish to live longer in order to live better, or do we wish to live better in order to live longer?" By going through the roots of medicine and the hippocratic oath, Kass shows what the healing arts are meant to be, and he exposes what the curing industry is rapidly becoming. Kass also takes an indepth look at science itself as it relates to research, ethics and the most basic levels of the human condition.

Kass has a great treatment of the ends of medicine, the medical art, and gives a good initiation into bioethics. Easy to read.

I got this book in a very timely manner and in remarkable condition. The poor rating is BY NO MEANS on the shipping or condition of the book :) HOWEVER....

Kass is pretentious. He cannot pick a side on ANY of his issues and takes twenty times longer than necessary to say it. The whole book just feels like filler that you throw into a 20 page college paper when you've run out of things to say. He brings up some compelling issues...but the delivery is poor.
