It is an interesting book, but not fantastic.

Well researched (and experienced) book and a story well told.
Piecing together the threads of a story about a physician out of control and concerned almost exclusively with money and legacy, and without a concern for people, Dr Harbin shares the experiences of both ethical Physicians who stood up for what is right (and suffered) and disconnected doctors who look to balance their own benefit and success with what their greater responsibility is to their group, or doing the right thing.
Thank you for telling this story!!!!
Dr David Campbell is one of the most honest, well-respected ophthalmologists I know. This book served to want to make me a better technician and gave me reason to respect the man I've worked with & known for 10 years so much more than ever before!
I suggest this to anyone in the medical field, especially ophthalmology!
Thank you Dr Harbin for telling this story that very obviously needed to be told!!!!
I can’t remember another story with a less likely villain and a committee as a hero.
Cringeworthy and plausible makes the story more discomforting.
Writing this book was a tremendous service to people who strive to be professionals.
