"an excellent contribution to medical ethics" —Ethics

"wide-ranging, compassionate, and insightful" —Publishers Weekly

"a sensitive and provocative approach to the study of ethical decision making" —Choice

"[This] sensitive and moving book . . . compels and merits the grateful, concentrated, and critical attention of all who know, who live with, and who seek to help those human beings to whom terrible things have happened." —BioLaw

"The human contact embodied in The Patient's Ordeal puts the book light-years ahead of others in the field of medical ethics. . . . Once the dust from the academic reviews has settled, this book will be one of the few in the field of medical ethics that is thought of as a seminal work, one that has broken new ground. A remarkable, well-written, significant work, it cannot be commended too highly." —Second Opinion
