From early reviews:

"This second volume of Annie Searle's Reflections on Risk continues her tradition of bringing critical issues facing our society to the forefront through a careful combination of education, collaboration and inspiration. The essays in this book are a result of her mentorship and guidance of students in the University of Washington Master of Science in Information Management program at the University of Washington Information School, and provide a window into the varied and complex issues facing individuals and organizations as we move further into the Information Age. The background and insights provided in this work should be required reading for all; they illuminate the numerous and diverse challenges we face in managing and securing our information assets in the digital world, as well as providing a glimpse into the minds that will be shaping our future.
