The Eclectic Book Review of Bioethics for Beginners by Glenn McGee

The subject of this book, bioethics, has been fiercely debated in one way or another by practically every adult at some point in time.  Regardless, the subject is not one at the forefront of most peoples’ list of priorities, though it should be.  The author has done a great job of discussing a complex and hotly debated subject and distilling it down to plain language that the average person can understand and analyze.  This is a thought provoking read, and is highly recommended for everyone who has any involvement in the medical field; provider, researcher, or patient.

The subject of this book, bioethics, is an extremely important subject with wide-reaching implications, yet most people don’t give it much of a thought.  That is what makes this book so important.
