Both Jackson and Keown are recognized experts in the field, and their positions are well known: thus the book contains (with merit) a wide variety of arguments and perspectives. And, although each author's presentation is different in his or her own way, the way in which each of them confront identical problems is one of the greatest values of the book. -- Ricardo Chueca * Law and Politics Book Review, Volume 23(2) * This highly accessible book reveals and critiques the flawed logic of the utilitarian mind with its view that human life has but instrumental value to be discarded when no longer of use, justifiable on the grounds that autonomy is to be respected even more than life. With echoes of the tactics used to force the decriminalisation of abortion, this book is a must read for anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the hotly disputed issue of assisted dying. -- unknown * LIFE Magazine * Both Jackson and Keown have put forward accessible and well-argued cases for their respective views. -- Alex Carlile * The Tablet * A concise and excellent summary of the current state of play in the debate about assisted dying. -- Roger Woodruff * International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care e-Newsletter * Both Jackson's and Keown's contributions are clearly presented and succinct, and provide learned representations of the polarised perspectives taken in the euthanasia debate. ... as a supplementary text, one which is used in conjunction with others to flesh out an area of study, it is invaluable. -- Jennifer Edwards * Medical Law Review, Volume 21 *
