Review:

"...very interesting and informative to those in the health care "system" of America...worth adding to your library."(AAMA Executive -- Journal of the American Academy of Medical Administrators) -- AAMA Executive (journal of the American Academ

"Let me begin by saying that I liked this book very much...will be well received within the academic community." -- University of North Carolina at Charlotte, June 7, 2001

For anyone returning to the U.S. to practice in health care, this book provides the missing evolutionary pieces that "time away" may have created." -- Hanrahan, Susan, PT, PhD, Physical Therapy, March 2001
