‘Ethics, Computing and Medicine covers comprehensively the intersection of these three substantial topics and that is no small task … The important issues are presented clearly, with little detail that might be baffling to the non-expert … Nowhere else have I encountered such an accessible summary of this increasingly important area.’ Sarah McGhee, Hong Kong University
