About the Author
Glenna M. Crooks, Ph.D., former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health for the Reagan administration, is founder and president of Strategic Health Policy International, Inc. (SHPI). Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC, SHPI assists businesses and governments to understand and manage policy and political issues in health care.
At SHPI, Dr. Crooks counsels government and business executives in negotiating the challenges of leadership in today's rocky health care environment. Dr. Crooks has participated in the health care arena for more than twenty years. After leaving the United States Department of Health and Human Services, she developed and managed global policy operations at Merck & Company, for domestic and international markets. There she rose to become Vice President for Worldwide Operations of Merck's vaccine business.
SHPI works with health products and services companies, health providers, venture firms, trade associations and governments in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. SHPI provides a range of services from formulating health policy and political analyses to designing strategy and management; from moderating and chairing meetings and facilitating concensus to negotiating and resolving conflicts; from speaking on select topics to customizing topics for client needs; and from training and mentoring to coaching and briefing executives.
Dr. Crooks is on the Board of Directors of American Biogenetics, Inc. and is an Adjunct Professor of Health Policy at the University of Sciences in Philadelphia.

I consider this book a must read for any health care professional from practicing physician to product manager. Building relationships is important in any industry, but within health care, without a strong patient-caregiver bond all other efforts to improve our system will not succeed.
Dr. Crooks masterfully gives the reader insights, unlike any other healthcare professional, into the root causes of the challenges the health care industry is facing today.
If we all followed her wisdom and deep respect for the covenant between healer and patient, we as a society would leave a legacy of caring and great integrity for countless future generations.
