With more than 100 checklists, diagrams, charts, tables, forms and pre-written documents, this is the comprehensive guide to a crisis plan that you need. Conversational prose makes complex concepts in risk and crisis management easily accessible. Case studies and anecdotes from real-life incidents remind readers of the dos and don’ts of crisis management. When you hear the expression, “He wrote the book on crisis management”-this is the book. This book had its origins in the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Dr. Bonner had trained responders who went to Alaska and was then commissioned to design and execute major oil spills for the oil industry and coast guard on both coasts of North America. Seeing that their crisis plans were not adequate, clients then commissioned new plans from scratch. This plan has been polished, re-written, researched and tested in the diplomatic corps, with the military, trade officials, hospitals, police forces, off-shore drilling companies, mining companies and many other high need clients on five continents over 15 years.
