'As a risk management journalist, I read many articles and text on operational risk. Many are hard going; this book is not. The language is straightforward and avoids repetition of buzzwords, a pet grievance. More important is the clarity of thought, the "distillation of two lifetimes of experience in operational risk management" that underpins this work'. Lee Coppack, Risk Management Professional, March 2011
