We live in a world where the vulnerability to crises and the breadth of types of crises grow daily.

   schema:description ""This is much more than a book on crisis leadership. It's a handbook on how to lead, regardless of the situation. This book stands out in several ways. It is authoritative. It couples research with practice, and it is chock full of great examples. I seriously doubt that there will be a better book out there than this one."
