I bought this book in paperback, read it, then loaned it to my daughter, never to see it again. I will be starting my first seasonal nursing assignment in October 2012 and I wanted to be able to reference it anytime, so I decided to buy it as an eBook for my Nook and/or iPad. I reference it often. My daughter never finished the book and ended up in her first assignment with several problems that she could have avoided if she had read the book! This book covers everything with excellent links and references! In my opinion, it was an easy read. My daughter barely reads anything, which I can't begin to understand, but that is why she never finished it. I skipped over sections that didn't pertain to me, such as being an independent contractor, travel for PT's and OT's, etc. The website for Highway Hypodermics is also very helpful! Two thumbs up!!!!!

Pathetic. Is there anything less than one star? Offers nothing except pablum and advertisements.
