Two books on virtually the same important but touchy topic, both closely reasoned, each published by the same press at about the same time, and each written by a professor of philosophy (Prado is Canadian, Young Australian) who advocates (Prado more cautiously than Young) for rational suicide—these are the similarities. But the differences between them are plain. Prado's book is a pedantic and somewhat arcane academic treatise; Young's is a book of relevance to clinicians, particularly clinical bioethicists.
