Most Helpful Customer Reviews

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Amazon Customer on September 29, 2009
Format: Hardcover
The authors take extremely complex issues and unfortunately present only one side of the debate. The writing style is actually insulting to the reader and does not give the reader any room to make up his or her own opinion. Even the chapter titles tell the reader, in advance, where the authors stand on the issues (i.e. "The Shame of Medical Research," "Rationing Life"). Many of the quotations and references are presented without enough information to allow the reader to form an opinion and see both sides of these interesting ethical dilemmas. If you want to read about social justice and human rights, read Paul Farmer and skip the contemptuous stories delivered by the Rothmans.
