This is an excellent book, and excellent introduction to medical ethics. I purchased this book in the months before applying for medicine at university, and read it once or twice before my interviews. It was invaluable, offering an easy to understand and well structured discussion on medical ethics.
More importantly, the book was full of excellent examples which would be easily remembered as they were interesting in nature (well, interesting to a medicine applicant anyway!). I found myself in several of my medicine interviews being questioned upon the ethics of medicine, and instantly, really interesting examples came to my head from this book, allowing me to continue the discussion in the interview.
I particularly enjoyed the section on Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALYs), and having just finished my first year of medicine at university, QALYs come up in the degree as well as possibly in interviews.
Overall, this is a great book, it's price:usefulness ratio is brilliant. If nothing else, it should be read on the train/car trip to a medicine interview as the ethics questions can be among the hardest that interviewers ask. The book is also interesting enough that people not applying for medicine, or currently doing medicine, would find it a good read too.
