London Review of Books It isn't easy for philosophers trained in the analytic tradition to combine argumentative rigour with an accessible style, but she succeeds brilliantly.

John Forsythe, The Lancet Radcliffe Richards' book, without doubt, takes the debate [about organ transplants] forward.

Mary Warnock A marvellously timely and lucid book. Janet Radcliffe Richards's arguments have an irresistible power to make one think about one's own taken-for-granted assumptions and go to the hidden roots of one's prejudices.

Peter Singer This is applied ethics at its very best. Janet Radcliffe Richards's incisive, clear reasoning often yields surprising insights. This short book compels us to take a much more sceptical look at common assumptions concerning organ procurement, through selling or otherwise, from the living and the dead.

Druin Burch, Times Literary Supplement A concentrated weight of thoughtfulness that takes little time and no effort to be enthralled by.
