I first ordered this book because it was STRONGLY recommended by my professor and now I can't put it down. It really focuses in on the ethical struggles in healthcare that have to be dealt with on a daily basis. It really fits today's society and brings real life back into view and appreciation.

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. As an MBA student in Healthcare Management, it poses the ethical dilemmas of healthcare as a business. Easy to read and capitivating.

A few months ago, I read this book for my english class. Today, I am going to by it. This is one of the best books written. It is full of controversy that will make you regret to put it down. This book is a must read for every person interested in the medical profession.

Belkin's book is an incredible narrative on the Ethics Committee at Hermann Hospital and the tough decisions they make daily concerning their patients. This is a hard book to put down. I found myself reading it every spare second I could. As a medical school applicant, I found this book to be valuable, as it has given me new insight into the crucial role of ethics in medicine.
