Following on the immense first volume on risk management, this book contains stories about how people actually implemented enterprise risk management at different firms. Far more anecdotal than the first book, this one is a series of stories, in effect. As with the first volume, however, there are a few pieces here that I feel could have been left out - again, the ones that feel more like ads for an advisory firm than an actual guide for the reader.

That said, with this book you gain a lot of leads necessary to implementing such an enterprise risk management regime. Understanding the lessons learned from these tales will directly assist with your own approach - it's just a matter of finding the useful signals among the noise.

Before you act, listen. Before you react, think. Before you spend, earn. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try.
