Reviews

“This book will be useful to young surgeons (and might be helpful to young physicians of all specialties) who are going into practice, whether private, academic, or hybrid. … This is a unique and topical offering that will be valuable to surgeons of all subspecialties during the early years of their professional careers. It also will be useful to those who advise such surgeons, and anyone who is in the process of changing jobs.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody’s Book Reviews, July, 2017)
