Clear rating

Fabulous book by a medical ethicist, which discusses emerging possibilities in the realm of genetic engineering and the real societal consequences should such designer baby programs be realized. Peppered with case examples and engagements with social theorists and philosophers such as Habermas, this is an excellent read for students and laypersons alike. Sandel uses simple, straightforward arguments, and clear logic to make his point, without the jargon that you usually find in a medical ethics book. An easy read--the book just pulls you through to the end.
