From the PublisherPraise for Hilde and James Lindemann Nelson's previous book, The Patient in the Family: An Ethics of Medicine and Families:
"This is a pioneering work...The Nelsons write clear, untechnical prose with an uncommonly fine eye for detail, and the case descriptions are superb."
--John Hardwig, East Tennessee State University
"Their critique of the current dogmas that tend to guide medical decision-making in the care of incompetent patients is very powerful. This is a clearly written, accessible book that will play a prominent role in subsequent discussions of health care ethics."
--Susan Sherwin, Dalhousie University
