Great! December 8, 2014

"This is really a great textbook, is surprisingly concise for how thorough it is, and is likely to be a resource you keep around and won't want to sell back. It manages to teach well while being engaging and interesting, often using cases that are intriguing. Although some of these cases aren't the most relevant possible, I appreciate that they often chose interesting ones instead. It highlights many medical realities and gives many what-if situations, which I think makes it an excellent primer in medical ethics. After going through this book you will be mostly prepared to take a HIPAA exam."
