Business Fundamentals for the Rehabilitation Professional is a worthwhile read for any rehabilitation professional who is considering opening a private practice. It will provide the basic knowledge to determine if the development of a private practice is a good move and will provide a basic framework to guide the decision matrix required to develop and implement a viable and sustainable business endeavor."
