"Prepare for the Worst, Plan for the Best: Disaster Preparedness and Recovery for Small Businesses" is written by Donna Childs and published by Wiley.

Now in its second edition, Prepare for the Worst, Plan for the Best is about how to prepare a small business for disaster recovery. It presents a structured blueprint to help you evaluate your business and its vulnerability. It guides you through developing a cost-effective, individualized disaster and recovery plan.

According to the author, one in four businesses will experience a significant crisis in any given year. Of those, 43% will never re-open. And of those that do re-open, they were dealt a blow that makes real recovery difficult - two years later only 29% are still operating. For those reasons, you need to assess your business's vulnerability and prepare for the worst.

The book is divided into three sections: preparation, responding to and recovering from a disaster. The book contains chapters on preparing an IT strategy, ensuring financial liquidity, basic safety practices, and business mail procedures.
