"The authors, all members of the Microbiome Working Group, have brought their many years of experience and varied areas of expertise to bear on [social, ethical, and legal aspects of microbiome research], with an eye toward formulating guidelines and public policy recommendations that should prove useful as microbiome research ventures into increasingly uncharted territory in the coming years." -R.K. Harris, William Carey University, CHOICE
This anthology would be very useful for human microbiome researchers with little experience with medical ethics or philosophers with little knowledge of the human microbiome, although as a jumping-off point for further detailed examination of both sides of many issues. This is a solid first look at ethics and the human microbiome. -- The Quarterly Review of Biology
"This volume is a fine example of bioethics at its best." --Environmental Philosophy
