Review:
Chapter one defines four types of risks--and immediately contradicts itself with tables of other types of risks. The basic point seems to be that risks exist. Chapter two looks at the new product development process and reputation management (after all, one type of risk is bad publicity). There is a look at risk mitigation, but not risk acceptance or avoidance, a cost/benefit analysis that is not very detailed, and a contrived use of the "9/11" World Trade Center disaster (but no mention of the brokerage firm that survived) that undercuts the ultimate message about having a disaster plan.

Review:
The preface is heavy on buzzwords (and a few spelling errors) with little attention paid to concepts and structure. Part one would like us to think of the forging of a new economy. Chapter one asks "what is e-business," and, with a little re-interpretation of history (the Internet had been in existence for twenty two years and had five million users, a significant number private and commercial, before it "became available to the public" according to this book) and ignoring of inconvenient facts (the hyperinflation of dot com IPO stocks is stated to prove the success of e-business just before we are told that the dot com failure was inevitable because of stock hyperinflation) tells us that e-business uses the net and makes money.
