Format: Hardcover
The content of book is reviewed after an unmemorable day, 11 Sept., it does not mean DRP is reviewed from the beginning and changed due to this incidence, however, for me, after reading part of this book, I understood the importance of DRP for any kind of companies whatever it is a small one or big one, crisis management and contingency planning are necessary.
The technology and architecture used in DRP is sophisticated especially in enterprise, but I have another point of view, it sparks me to think of such planning for those small to medium size companies because they can't afford to spend lots of $$$ on it, that's reason this book brings value to a consultant.
Most people think that DRP can't generate revenue actually, however, from this book, it provides a concept to me how to secure a company assets. This book is quite suitable to those business management as well to remind and review themselves. Sometimes, we are not so lucky, some incidences will not give us a second chance or accident could be recovered, this book told us why and how to prepare before unexpected events come to us.
I don't think DRP (Diaster Recovery Planning) or BCP (Business Continuity Planning)are narrowed to IT only, even our home, public facilities, etc., we could apply our DRP mindset there.
By the way, in Hong Kong, SARS is prevailing, will you just start to keep fit, eat more fruits and sleep earlier when a powerful disease comes? At least, it is not too late for us to improve when we discover our problems.
This book reminds us: Prepare for the worst.

Consider the heavy contents on various technology, this book is for IT people who is assigned the task on DR/BC planning. The author did a great job on not only introduce the technology, but also point out the limitation of it.
Jon also rightly pointed out while the scope and stake are bigger, the nature of a DR/BC plan has been shifted from an infrastructure enhancement task to an application development project. With this right perception and principles recommended, you can now start a successful DR/BC planning project.

I had to purchase this book for a class, but I was very impressed with the approachable way in which the material was presented. Unlike most of my books, this one is sticking around as a reference.
