It's sad that other competing authors can write comments about other authors. Revere believes that education should be as free as possible, and after meeting him with many of his other publication gives away all profits of his books to charity.
Revere's book on risk is simple and creative. A good read.

Not what I expected
By A. Basu
Big surpise. The Book Details on the Amazon website states that the book has 400 pages. The book actually has 93 pages. It gives a very skimpy introduction to some terms. About 60 pages provide listing of basic and obvious 'risk events' with suggested mitigation strategy. At best this may serve as a simple checklist for beginners.
