* Written from a philosophically and scientifically informedpoint of view
* Considers real contemporary cases of parents choosing what kindof child to have
* Uses 'moral images' as a way to get readers with nobackground in philosophy to think about moral dilemmas
* Provides an authoritative account of the science involved,making the book suitable for readers with no knowledge ofgenetics
* Creates a moral framework for assessing all newtechnologies
