Reviews

It isn't easy for philosophers trained in the analytic tradition to combine argumentative rigour with an accessible style, but she succeeds brilliantly. * London Review of Books *
Radcliffe Richards' book, without doubt, takes the debate [about organ transplants] forward. * John Forsythe, The Lancet *
A marvellously timely and lucid book. Janet Radcliffe Richards's arguments have an irresistible power to make one think about one's own taken-for-granted assumptions and go to the hidden roots of one's prejudices. * Mary Warnock *
This is applied ethics at its very best. Janet Radcliffe Richards's incisive, clear reasoning often yields surprising insights. This short book compels us to take a much more sceptical look at common assumptions concerning organ procurement, through selling or otherwise, from the living and the dead. * Peter Singer *
A concentrated weight of thoughtfulness that takes little time and no effort to be enthralled by. * Druin Burch, Times Literary Supplement *
