Format: Paperback
This book provides a brief but nonetheless invaluable explanation of key areas of medical law, its concise and straightforward text allows the reader to quickly grasp the key issues in this field. Furthermore the inclusion of key cases and exam guidance allows for a far more palatable revision tool compared to other complex medical law books. Whilst this book lacks in depth detail, it contains sufficient information to gain an overall understanding of this vast field.

I have noticed that the previous review is very negative towards this book, and I find it rather curious that the author of the post (Gwyn Tovey) shares the same name as the author of a rival medical law book (Medical Law: Nutcases). I will leave it to you to decide whether to take those comments seriously.

Overall, this book is an excellent addition to any medical law student's bookcase, and is an excellent revision aid.

An excellent little book, simply and logically written.
I know it is a revision guide but I am new to Medical Law and I wanted something to get to the heart of this very complex subject and I found it.
It is very useful to clarify things in your mind and it breaks down the various subjects into easy bite size pieces.
Although I have also purchased the more formal Medical Law book by the same author I find I am drawn to this to help organise my thoughts for my course work.
In all.... well worth the money and I thoroughly recommend it.

I bought this for revising for an ethis paper when I started medicine after trying other books and finding them overly verbose, the book covers the essentials (e.g. the four principles, ultitarianism) and moves onto the more advanced topics in a well thought out order and didn't seem to miss anything out which I found was a problem in other titles I have tried from the library.

If you are a medical student you could always find this is your library but I do suggest buying it because it comes in handy the year through and is the best value for money I have got out of a book, especially considering it's an entire paper's worth of marks in some unis.

Other books I have used and found good for ethics:
Crash Course: Ethics and Human Sciences (Crash Course-UK) This was useful but never seemed as concise as Medical Law.
Medical Ethics and Law: The Core Curriculum This is probably the most used book I see amongst medical students for ethics, it's very well structured but people who use it tend to skip out all of the descriptions and just focus on the key point boxes... not the point really and difficult to justify the increased cost unless you're OK with reading around the key points.

It's brief, gives the salient points and is a useful synopsis, especially to a lay person.

Format: Paperback
The Law Express series contains some very good books written in a style that promotes effective learning and which is likely to prove invaluable as a revision aid. Regrettably, this offering isn't one of them. Chapters 5 (Medical Negligence), 8 (Organ Donation, etc) and 10 (Mental Health Law) are very superficial; and the diagrams at the beginning of each and every chapter of the book are very disappointing in that they don't convey the essence or the structure of the subject matter in the same way as the highly recommended Criminal Law book in the same series. Even worse: if you need to revise medical ethics, this is about the last book on earth you would select for help as both consequentialism and deontological approaches are dismissed in a couple of sentences for each family of theories. Don't even ask for this book as a gift: no-one should spend any money on this offering.
