In the wellness business? A must for your library! We just built our first fitness center at MD Anderson, and it had been more than 15 years since I had built and ran a fitness center. Joann’s book helped me ask the right questions, and gave me the confidence that we were going to open and run a safe, successful worksite fitness center. A must for worksite wellness libraries.Be WellbillbaunManager Wellness Program MD Anderson Cancer Center

Good basic information This book is a good basic overview of risk management. Has lots of case examples and usuable suggestions on actions to take. A little wordy and not easy to read (to much extraneous info) I think it could have been done in much less space. Still good info on the subject matter.
