Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I would recommend this book to the readership of the Journal, because it deals with important issues that face those in our profession in a reasonably comprehensive way." (Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences, 1 July 2011)

"This book is a splendid receipe for survival, crammed with highly-detailed solutions in a practical, light-hearted presentation." (RoSPA Occupational Safety & Health Journal, 1 July 2011)

"This self-help book small in size, certainly considering that it should be manageable for a busy doctor. The presentation is perceived to some extent influenced school book, with sandwiches lists of complaints or actions. . . but it points to both organizational and individual factors that are important to be aware of and that in many cases can be dealt with to get a better workday." (Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, 18 November 2010)
