"As a leader and pioneer in the field, Veatch is very solid in terms of accuracy." — Kyle Fedler, Ashland University
"I've used the Veatch book in teaching bioethics in short courses to non-philosophy audiences: medical students, physical therapy students, physician assistants, etc. They like it very much. It is readable, accessible, and interesting. The examples are well-chosen and memorable. The topics are well-chosen and coverage [is] appropriate. The presentation is balanced and thought-provoking." — Leslie Pickering Francis, University of Utah
