From cosmetic surgery to euthanasia, Daniel Sokol offers a unique insight into the world of medical ethics. Drawing on his experience as a leading medical ethicist and barrister, and years of front-line experience in hospitals, Daniel sheds a light on the ethical complexities of modern medicine and guides us towards a better understanding of morality. When is it acceptable to restrain patients? Should doctors always tell patients the truth? When should life-sustaining treatment be stopped? What makes life worth living? Whichever end of the stethoscope you stand, Daniel's book will change the way you think about medicine. : Reviews : "Sokol won't just change the way you think about medicine, but also morality. A unique fusion of wit and wisdom." - Adam Kay, best-selling author of This is Going to Hurt. "A wonderfully lucid account, full of quiet common sense. All doctors would benefit from reading this book." - Henry Marsh, neurosurgeon and best-selling author of Do No Harm.
