What you are about to read represents a new way of teaching technical material. As the approach is unorthodox, an explanation is warranted. The format is that of a textbook/novel. It tells the story of an accountant asked to become the interim administrator of a failing rural hospital after the death of the hospital administrator. Before he can save the hospital, he must understand how the healthcare industry differs from other industries where he has worked.

Why a textbook/novel? I believe fiction is an effective tool for teaching technical material. For thousands of years, civilizations passed knowledge to succeeding generations through stories—folk tales, poems, myths, and epics that taught values to succeeding generations of their societies. Even the Bible—a reference for many cultures—is not a list of rules. It is a series of stories explaining what happens when people follow (or fail to follow) the concepts taught in the text.
