Read Reviews by leading physicians:

“We do not do enough to prepare our trainees for the business of practice. Likewise, so many creative physicians have commercializable ideas, but find out the hard way how a good idea does not a successful business make. Hacker’s book is a gem in that it speaks to both of these challenges in an engaging way. It is chock-full of wisdom, easily read, and very enjoyable reading. I’ll be recommending it to all of our trainees.”

“Part I allows the reader to envision the necessary activities for opening his or her own practice in the voice of the author, while Part II is a guide for budding entrepreneurs. Part II covers victories and defeats in clear, concise tones that anyone can appreciate and empathize with. Hemingwayesque, concise, and practical, this book would be an ideal gift from department chairs to their senior residents at the start of their last year of training, or a personal purchase around the same time if the chairperson is too cheap to buy it for you. If you are reading this, turn the page and take the roller-coaster ride. Enjoy!”

“After reading this book, I am now more certain than ever that my impressions of Dr. Hacker nearly twenty years ago were correct. His book is an honest, open, forthright attempt to share with his colleagues those precious details he has learned about establishing a medical practice and becoming an entrepreneur. I thought this book was fun to read, informative, concise, and blatantly honest. As I told Dr. Hacker after reading his book, ‘I think you have taught an old dog some new tricks.’ “
