As a clinical psychologist in training I found this book useful in guiding my conception of a private practice. It was required reading for one of my courses and provided useful information such as considering start up costs, finding a niche, etc. Many of the psychologists in practice I have spoken to claim to not have a business plan in place and seem to not give much thought to their business. This text helps to develop your entrepreneurial side and strengthen your business plan. Because psychologists are often resistant to entrepreneurial endeavors, I would recommend reading this book to help strengthen your ability to run a business that is not only personally rewarding but also professionally feasible.
