No problem with delivery or anything, it is a school assigned book, but I'm finding it to be much more interesting than usual.

Repetitive generalizations. Much of the text devoted to justifying a need for the book's subject. Much is written from an outsider's perspective with little in the way of concrete examples but lots of hypothetical drama in this overly long text. The included selected readings from active neuroscientists are better than the author's introductions to each main section. The "Mind Wars" covers the subject better, even though neuroethics is not its sole focus.

What a fantastic introduction to the philosphy of modern neuroscience and medicine.
Farah provides a clear, consise introduction in the field of neuroethics, which she notes is a field which deserves its own classification. She follows up with intereting chapters about current ethical delimas, such as non-medical use of cognitive enhancers such as Adderall and also fMRI practices in diagnosing neurodegenerative diseases before they become clinically significant.

As a undergraduate interested in philosophy without a background in bioethical issues, this was a awesome primer for me. The author strikes a great balance between theoretical philosophy and relevant issues in current medical practice. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the future of neuroscience and how it will affect all of our lives. Undergraduates, graduate students as well as pleasure readers will enjoy this book for its novel perspective on an important topic

This book was used as the main textbooks in my university level Neuroethics class. While the actual content of the book is interesting and detailed, the grammar, sentence structure, and flow of the book in general is awful. I caught myself reading sentences three or four times just trying to figure out what the author was trying to say. Every sentence was an unfocused jumble of incorrectly used punctuation. A word of advice to teachers, if you want your students to enjoy, or even understand the subject of Neuroethics, find a better piece of literature to teach it with.
