Reviews

“The audience is practicing surgeons who aspire to, or occupy, a leadership role. The issues that the book covers are important issues for any surgeon-leader, whether in academic or private practice. The book meets the needs of this intended audience. … This is an excellent guide that will be of use to any surgeon occupying a leadership role, or who aspires to such a role.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody's Book Reviews, December 20, 2019)
