Bioethics Book Reviews

If you are the editor/author of a recently published bioethics book and would like to have your book reviewed then please e-mail our Deputy Communications Officer Amanda Porter at We will find a CBS member to complete a review of your book and coordinate the process with the Canadian Journal of Bioethics (CJB), who will publish the review. We are thrilled to have a book review partnership with the CJB. Once the book review is accepted then the link to the CJB will be published on our website as well!

Below are the published book reviews.


Please note that the Canadian Bioethics Society does not take responsibility for the content of the book reviews.
