From the reviews:"This brief book is an argument for the compatibility between virtue ethics and human enhancements. ... The purpose of this book is to contribute to the conversation on enhancements by introducing virtue ethics to present a new perspective on human enhancement. ... the book addresses a topic in an important field, and provides a foundation for future discussion ... . it is most appropriate for readers not yet well versed in the Aristotelian virtue ethics tradition."
