Review quote

My expectations of this book were high and have not been disappointed at all - it is very relevant and, like the earlier volume, is packed with information that we as IT professionals need [...] This is a great book to have in the office to act as a checklist for IT managers, or even for commercial contract specialists who may not appreciate the full range of issues that needs to be covered in a new supplier agreement. -- Peter Wheatcroft, Principal Consultant
