"Our society is only beginning to come to grips with the profound implications of using biomarkers as imperfect 'crystal balls' for predicting the development of neurological and psychiatric disease. Dr. Baum's book is an essential guide to the scientific foundations of these tools and the
difficult ethical questions that they raise about moral responsibility and priority setting."
--Robert D. Truog, Frances Glessner Lee Professor of Medical Ethics, Anaesthesiology, and Pediatrics and Director of the Center for Bioethics, Harvard Medical School
"An exciting and comprehensive look at an important topic. Sure to be of interest to scientists and bioethicists working in the area."
--I. Glenn Cohen, Professor of Law and Faculty Director, Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics, Harvard Law School
