No to the Kindle Edition - Academics buy the book! Aug. 27 2012
By Darren M. Henson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a very good and helpful resource, particularly for those professionals involved in the thorny issues of Catholic healthcare ethics.

Nonetheless, the Kindle edition has several problems, two of primary importance. First, the footnotes are not hyperlinked. The authors have carefully and frequently footnoted this edition. Yet to see the citation, the reader has to bookmark the footnote section in the Kindle, and then page through perhaps several screens to identify the specific citation. Secondly, the Kindle edition only offers location numbers or positions and not actual page numbers. There's no way to correspond the Kindle page to an actual page in the physical book.

While these features may seem miniscule, they are crucially important for a researcher. This e-book is worthless for someone who wants to cite something from this book, primarily because there are no page numbers.

I submitted these questions and concerns to the publisher several weeks in advance of this review. Unfortunately, they did not reply. As I acknowledged to the publisher, they have another book from 2006 that I also purchased as an e-book for Kindle, that has these very features of linked footnotes and page numbers. Why this one, published in 2011 cannot accommodate that technology remains unanswered. I'm happy to change my rating if updates can be made.

Excellent book explains the Scriptural and Catholic Traditional teachings of ... Sept. 3 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book explains the Scriptural and Catholic Traditional teachings of the Church. The basis for Catholic bioethics is grounded in natural law and eternal law, not arbitrary decisions made by man. The case histories presented and stance of the Catholic Church are well documented and comprehensive; and, the reasoning behind the Church teaching in each case is clear and easily understood.

this was a required textbook for my pharmacy ethics class but i pretty much only used it as a reference. it's a little dense at times so i tended to just flip through until i found what i needed.
