Advance Praise

"""Excellent! This is Mitroff's best in crisis management. A careful reading of this book will cause you to ask important questions of yourself and your colleagues regarding the vulnerability of your enterprise to a crisis. By asking these questions now you will avoid the embarrassment of having to explain why you did not ask and answer them, and minimize the chances of the crisis occurring in the first place.""

-- Vince Barabba, former Director of Business Intelligence, General Motors; former Director of the U.S. Census Bureau.

""Agreement with the author is not the issue; thinking about the issues he raises is. You can't read this and avoid such thinking, and you can't avoid being better off if you do.""

-- Russ Ackoff, Professor Emeritus, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania

""Mitroff is the most eloquent voice we have writing about crises. This book is a timely masterpiece about our age of vulnerability and how, against all odds, we can best cope with this 21st century danger. The ‘we’ I am referring to includes all of us.""

-- Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business, University of Southern California; best-selling author of On Becoming a Leader"
