Editorial Reviews


Crisis Ready is a compelling reminder that managing a crisis is not the same as managing a company. If you think the same management techniques that allow you to win at business will enable you to weather a crisis you are doomed.

In a crisis, emotions run high, people revert to habits instead of the plan, information travels quickly whether it is accurate or not, and the effects of your decisions can be long-lived. Don't allow the crisis management plan sitting on your shelf give you a false sense of confidence. Read this book and then get to work at making crisis management muscle memory for your organization. --David Struhs, Vice President, Corporate Services and Sustainability, Domtar

Every business of any size needs to read Crisis Ready. Melissa Agnes demonstrates why she is a leading authority on timely, intelligent and appropriate communications in moments of crisis. If United Airlines had read this book in 2009 my United Breaks Guitars YouTube video would never have happened. I'm almost glad she hadn't written it yet. --Dave Carroll, Singer-songwriter, speaker, and creator of United Breaks Guitars

Speaking as a communications professional, there is no one better at crisis communications than Melissa Agnes. She has a calm and patient way of looking at the entire picture, assessing the challenge, and providing recommendations that work in less time than it takes you to say crisis communications. As social media came into the fold, she was one of the first and most trustworthy professionals to explain the differences between a crisis, an issue, and a quick social media event. She goes into each of these in-depth in Crisis Ready, while also providing a smart roadmap to help you build your reputation so when there is a crisis, you're prepared. With case studies, homework, rules, and tests, you will find yourself ready to handle anything by the end of the book. Read it, absorb it, take lots of notes, and create your crisis preparedness program. --Gini Dietrich, CEO of Arment Dietrich and founder and author of Spin Sucks
