From the Inside Flap
The type and quality of information provided by various entities is a touchy subject because, as I point out in this book, usually this information is intended more to improve the condition of the information provider than the receiver. Not many authors are interested in courting controversy, and this is why I believe no book like this has yet been written. Certainly, other books that describe different dimensions of the problem of risk management are also good to read. However, managing a project's risk is about more than the tactical elements of how to estimate risk. Reducing the risk of software implementations and increasing the probability of success means doing some nonconformist thinking. I provide all the information in this book; as the reader all you have to do is consider the logic of what I have written and be open to the message. If you do that, you will be far ahead of your counterparts who are not open to different thinking and are simply following the consensus viewpoint.
