This is a well written, fact filled book with a pinch of humor. Peter does an excellent job explaining disaster recovery that even management will 'get it!' This book will guide even the most novice systems administrator through the process of planning and executing a DR plan. Once business, that relies on computing, discovers this book, it will become required reading.
