From cosmetic surgery to euthanasia, Daniel Sokol offers a unique insight into the world of medical ethics. Drawing on his experience as a leading medical ethicist and barrister, and years of front-line experience in hospitals, Daniel sheds a light on the ethical complexities of modern medicine and guides us towards a better understanding of morality. When is it acceptable to restrain patients? Should doctors always tell patients the truth? When should life-sustaining treatment be stopped? What makes life worth living? Whichever end of the stethoscope you stand, Daniel's book will change the way you think about medicine.
Daniel Sokol lives in Hammersmith, London. He obtained his PhD from Imperial College in 2003 and, after some years as a university lecturer, trained as a barrister specialising in clinical negligence. Daniel is an award-winning columnist for the British Medical Journal and has sat on various committees, including those of the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Justice and the Royal College of Surgeons. He has conducted advisory work, training, conference moderation, and after-dinner speaking for leading companies and charities, and lecturers in the UK and internationally on medical ethics and law.
