The University of Pennsylvania's Arthur Caplan reviews The Cambridge Textbook of Bioethics in the latest issue of PLoS Biology. This 554-page tome by Singer and Viens is broad, he says, covering clinical ethics, end-of-life care, ethics of health systems, genetics, religious perspectives on bioethics and research ethics. But being so broad, "the curious, puzzled, or panicking clinician or manager may find that the kind of appetizer-sized portions available in this book are not going to sate an appetite for in-depth discussion," writes Caplan.
