"Nicholas Cummings has been called a lot of names in his life ... entrepreneur is one of them. The Cummings legacy will be voluminous and manifold. His contributions to the field have spanned the many definitions of practicing psychology--from education, to policy, to business, and to ongoing exploration. He has been predicting trends, cautioning those who would listen, and negotiating the obstacles to efficacious delivery of quality therapeutic services for over half a century. With this book, we pause once again to revist some of the most important of his projects as an entrepreneur, but not without a fight"--Back cover.
