Bruneval, Battleground, French Coast

B1803

The author has made a first class job of recounting this feat of arms. A considerable number of images have been included to enhance the text and many are previously unseen images. As an historical account of an exciting and important action, this book deserves to sell very well. The true story has many elements of the successful thriller and has provided the basis for a gripping account of an outstanding feat of arms. It also marks the first action of the newly formed British Parachute Regiment that was to play an important role in support of the D-Day Landings and advance towards Germany and victory.

New Risk Manager’s Handbook Number One Volume Four, Approaching Risk Management, Information Risks, Risk management for Information, The future, SMEs and SOHO

B1800

In Volume Four, the author considers communications and information systems. For many this automatically means electronic systems and computers, but the author explains how other older technologies may provide some effective solutions and goes on to relate the ways in which modern electronic technology can dramatically affect risk in other areas of the enterprise, both in introducing new risks and providing solutions for other risk issues. Having considered the way in which communications and information risks related to traditional enterprise structures and operations, the author considered how these new technologies are changing enterprise practices and structures, and how they may develop in the immediate future.

New Risk Manager’s Handbook Number One Volume Three, Approaching Risk Management, Risk management for buildings, Risk management for shared and public buildings, Risk management for travel and transport

B1799

Having initially being published in the traditional manner, with a printed paper hard back book, that then went through two reprints to meet demand, the author moved to the then very new medium of electronic publishing which made updating books easy and provided considerable freedom in the choice of layout and use of colour illustrations. This was appropriate for what was also still a pioneering concept in the safe achievement of objectives.

During 2012, the author began a major revision of his work and this volume of Handbook Number One is one of four volumes, reviewing the approach to true holistic risk management. Handbook Number One in its four volumes is a foundation work that sets the basis for later handbooks addressing parts of risk management in greater detail and to assist those working in specific areas of risk management.
