While the Roman Catholic position is explored in some detail, the book also addresses the arguments stemming from both philosophical and medical considerations. Using concise, nontechnical language, the author explains the arguments for and against euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide in a clear and evenhanded manner. This book provides an excellent overview for readers who are new to the controversy as well as those readers who wish to deepen their understanding of a complex area of debate."@en
