Overdrive - Managing in Crisis-Filled Times

Michael Silva and Terry McGann John Wiley pounds 21.50

A consultant to various Fortune 500 companies, Silva is well versed in crisis management. The book is deceptively informal, but its content is sound. It includes plenty of new thinking on the issue and a section on crisis management myths. (Best of its kind)
