My new book

It seems like I've been waiting for years, but my book, The Final Hurdle - A Physician's Guide to Negotiating a Fair Employment Agreement is finally out! I wrote the book because I find it incredible that so many physicians don't realize that a medical contract really is different.
I think the book is fairly comprehensive.  It deals with the major issues involved in negotiating physician employment contracts:
  •  Physician compensation and benefits (how to know if it is a fair offer, and how to figure out what sort of productivity the employer is likely expecting)
  • Restrictive covenants in physician employment agreements (how to make sure you can make a living if this deal doesn't work out)
  • Call coverage issues (how to gauge what's fair, and what to avoid)
  • Miscellaneous pearls of wisdom I've gleaned from physician employment contract negotiation as a physician contract attorney since 1992 or so (yes, I've been doing physician employment contract review and physician contract negotiations that long!)
The initial response seems to be favorable - but about the only people who really know about it so far are my friends and clients, so they might be just a little bit biased.

I'd love to have the reaction of any readers of the blog to the website about the book, or, better yet, about the book itself.
