    I have a Masters' in bioethics and work full-time in this field (medical research ethics), so I read Bioethics: The Basics mainly to see what's being taught these days; it was published in 2013. Despite the fact that I'm already well-versed the subject matter, I really enjoyed it. Alastair Campbell's writing was smooth and punchy, and avoided the trap of reading like a textbook. This would be a great introductory or refresher for anyone interested in bioethics, medicine, research, and the future of humanity!

    This is an interesting topic one I'd like to know more about. The author presents it in a way that a layman can understand.
