This is an exceptional book. I met the author some years ago at a conference, where he was the guest speaker. I liked the first edition, but this second edition is even better. There are new HSEQ standards coming as a result of Annex SL, and Asbury explains the changes clearly, how to use them, and what they mean for organizations. The Audit Adventure approach to high-value future-focused auditing is very clear, and this is a book I can whole-heartedly recommend. 5*.
