“What you might not expect is that this book is least of all about medicine. Because in a world that is rapidly changing, today to be a psychiatrist – or any other type of medical doctor for that matter – you need to learn much more than just how to diagnose and prescribe. 

...All the skills that you need to ‘ survive ’ everything else that is going on around you – administration, ethical issues, need for cooperation with colleagues, taking over a leadership role when needed, and managing people in general – is included in this book. And that is why this book is in so many ways unique.

...This book to me represents much more than a useful tool for my future professional life. It is a window into a different mindset; one that has been leading innovation and progress in the world.”
