Review

Well and Good is perhaps best described as an ethical primer. Not only
does it discuss specific medical/ethical issues, but it also examines
the basis of ethical thought and theory in Western society. In the
tradition of moral philosophy, issues are examined and questions
raised—as in the case of a wife wishing to terminate her
pregnancy—but firm answers are not given.

Notwithstanding its daunting subject matter, the book is clearly
written and will appeal to the interested lay person as well as those
involved in the biomedical ethics field.
