Not a book meant to be read from cover to cover, more a dip in and out of resouce for anyone interested in how film seeks to discuss ethical issues. Dealing with issues as varied as patient/doctor relationships, death and dying and patient autonomy it seeks in each chapter to look at a different film and explore some of the issues within it. Over all a good investment both in terms of money and time.
