The Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) recommends this book as a part of its Medical Practice Management Core Learning Series. It is also applicable to any professional working in other healthcare settings, such as hospitals, clinics and provider networks.
Special Note to Physicians and other Clinical Professionals: The staff you supervise do not have to know that you are reading books to gain insight into management! Read it at home if you want to keep up appearances - however, do read management books. They really help you strengthen what you already know and learn effectively from others.
