    The best book I have read on this subject.

    Today, everyone should be thinking about risk in their business or in whatever they do. <BR/>This book helped me understand how to identify risk and, even more importantly, how to be practical about the next steps - figure out which risk to mitigate and which risk to accept or ignore; and then a practical approach to changing processes so that the risk mitigation is not just a bolt-on. <BR/>This is truly a book for anyone and everyone.
