"I think that the author is overall accurate in assessing the field - it is exactly the kind of textbook that adequately addresses the critical thinking component of Contemporary Moral Problems. While it could be improved in some, relatively minor ways, the structure of this textbook is ideal for this type of course."- Dr. Nenad Popovic, Southern Methodist University
"I think this is a very good ethics text with coverage of the main hot topics in contemporary applied ethics. I also very much like the "arguments for/against" sections. They are very nicely done and succinctly worded, a bit like a point/counterpoint section for each chapter." - Dr. Rocco J. Gennaro, Indiana State University
