About the Author
About the FiscalDoctor It is one of the most complicated questions in business: What is the impact of hidden risk on your bottom line? Or, to put it bluntly: What is the cost of what you don't know? In today's economic environment, unforeseen risk could cost you your company. Author Gary Patterson, the FiscalDoctor, works with companies to check their vital signs and diagnose problems before unpleasant side effects show up on their balance sheets. Patterson puts his extensive C-level experience in accounting, IT, sales, manufacturing and HR to work writing, speaking and consulting on enterprise risk assessment, risk analysis, corporate governance, and the bottom line impact of going green. The FiscalDoctor corporate checkup helps identify internal problems from inventory mismanagement, outdated and incomplete financial reports, and false accounting assumptions to external forces like misreading the market, losing competitive advantage and missing golden opportunities. Patterson is a KPMG CPA with an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and has 30 years experience working with CEOs, board members, executive teams, private equity investors, and entrepreneurs to help them identify and manage the risk factors that may already be affecting their balance sheets and their bottom line.

If you want a book to help keep your business healthy written in a fun and familiar manner, "Stick Out Your Balance Sheet and Cough" is it.
The book is not for a very small business, because Gary assumes you have several employees, a Board of Directors, at least a few million in sales, etc.
