“Finally! The book that all health care board members needed but were afraid to ask for! Those dark days of staring at incomprehensible numbers during board meetings, of nervous nodding when their financially-literate brethren make comments or ask questions, of voting on things that they do not understand are gone! This book is long overdue and should be read by every trustee who is not a finance professional.”--James E. Orlikoff, president, Orlikoff & Associates, Inc. and executive director, American Governance & Leadership Group
