I just moved into Business Continuity and this book came at just the right time. It's saved me lots of time and is much more practical than the other books I've looked at.

This year I've had to take responsibility for doing BIAs, writing and maintaining Business Continuity Plans and running both DR and Business Recovery test. The book filled in all my blanks and gave me the confidence to dive right in.

I'm quite lucky as we have templates for most things, but if we didn't the book has templates for pretty much everything, so looks like a great resource. Until I got this book I just felt I was being told what I had to do but not how to do it, the book explained how to do it in simple terms and with examples.

At the moment the book is helping me with the basics, but it covers all the topics at an advanced level so I think it will be useful for as long as I stay in Business Continuity.

I borrowed this book off my manager at work who had purchased it because responsibility for fulfilling some BCM functions had been passed to our department. Having little experience of the subject I found the book to be full of practical advice and suggested actions for ways to implement or improve BCM.
Its written in a down to earth manor and stays away from waffle and excessive theory, instead providing detailed descriptions of how to carry out the necessary tasks to ensure key business functions continue when faced with disruption.
I would recommend this book for anyone with little time on their hands who needs to get a quick grasp of what to do to implement BCM in a business.

A well organised book that offers the reader pretty much everything they need to know when it comes to Business Continuity, Crisis Management and IT Disaster Recovery. I initially bought it to support my MSc dissertation but have found it very a very useful reference guide at work too.

It is written in a conversational tone and certainly does not come across, as some do, as a dry textbook. Concepts are explained well and the author clearly demonstrates 'real-world' knowledge in his writing.

I have been in the BCM field for over 10 years and this book hits the nail on the head. It has been written by someone who clearly knows what they are talking about. I would buy this book whether you are new or experienced in BCM as you can apply what it covers if you are working in a small or global company. It is especially great if you are studying BCM as a new subject.
