Disasters-both natural and man-made-are a part of the human condition. But when a disaster strikes, most people are unprepared. The inevitable result is loss of life and property. But it doesn't have to be this way

In "Resilience," Dr. Robert A. Collins, an urban planner and social scientist, explains how business owners survived Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters and shows you how you, too, can beat the odds. Dr. Collins describes the universal characteristics of such businesses in his Ten Commandments of Resilience. They include:

Thou Shalt Have a Written Disaster Plan Thou Shalt Do Cost-Benefit Analysis Thou Shalt Be Fully Insured Thou Shalt Be Mobile Thou Shalt Not Depend on Others

While most disaster books focus merely on teaching people how to survive, "Resilience" teaches you how to thrive and profit from them. Since disasters are an inevitable part of life, the wisest course of action is to understand, prepare, and capitalize on the opportunities they present.
