My Book is Available for Pre-Order
This was pretty exciting to discover… my book (“Lean Hospitals: Improving Quality, Patient Safety, and Employee Satisfaction”) is out there on the publisher website as well as amazon.com (my publisher would certainly prefer that you order it through them directly). It looks like you can go ahead and pre-order if you're interested in doing so now or in the future.
There's no cover image yet… the book is still going through the editing process, but it looks like we have July 23 as a release date, so that's exciting too.
A few friends of the blog had asked about autographed copies… that's very flattering. We'll work out something, especially for Lean Blog readers. The “Lean” approach was taken by the authors of Freakonomics, who would send a free autographed label that you could put in your own book (avoiding the “waste of transportation” of shipping a book multiple times).
Stay tuned and thanks for the enthusiasm that everyone has shared for the book.
As we work on the marketing plan for the book, if anyone has ideas for blogs or podcasts (in the healthcare space) that I should try to be interviewed for, I'm happy to hear your suggestions (Email me at mark [at] leanhospitalsbook [dot] com).
