Reviewed in the New England Journal of Medicine March 11, 1999 ("Schneider supports the principle of patient autonomy. But at the same time, he effectively deflates its most unrealistic, and arguably undesirable, pretensions. He sums up his work by observing that "informing our bioethical thinking with an understanding of how the world works will richly reward the effort." His intended audience of physicians, bioethicists, attorneys, and social scientists should agree strongly with this assessment.")
