MEDIA REVIEWS

"The go-to manual...Lehane and Fabiani are well positioned to distill the lessons of the baseball steroid scandal, Tiger Woods's infidelities, and Anthony Weiner's obscene tweets into clearly articulated principles."--starred review, "Publishers Weekly"

"If you are a public figure, or even a private citizen who might engender controversy, read this book and put its authors on your speed dial. These guys are truly the masters not only of avoiding or minimizing disaster, but of dealing with the kind of crises faced by ordinary people when they first encounter the media, the law or the blood sport we call politics."--Alan M. Dershowitz, author of "The Trials of Zion"

"In a hostile climate where reputations and markets can be capriciously destroyed in seconds, the old chestnuts about crisis management don't apply. What's needed is perspective from the seasoned "Masters of Disaster" who understand that damage control is a temperamental art, not grade school science. A valuable addition to the modern crisis canon."--Eric Dezenhall, CEO Dezenhall Resources, Ltd. and author of "Damage Control: The Essential Lessons of Crisis Management"

"Every board, every manager and now almost every individual now faces the possibility of being swept up in a firestorm of media and mangled message. Masters of Disaster provides both sound rules and great examples of both the positive and negative kind to guide us all through to the best possible outcomes. The only danger is that you won't read it in advance. I recommend it to all my board colleagues and CEO friends."--Howard Stevenson, Sarofim Rock Professor Emeritus, Harvard Business School

"Today crisis is common, and news of scandal, whether large or small, spreads rapidly. Through detailed case studies that focus on both those who have successfully overcome a crisis and those who have failed, "Masters of Disaster" offers essential insight into crisis management."--Ted Leonsis, owner of the Washington Capitols and Washington W
