This book is about a different aspect of the Y2K problem. Basically it assumes that readers are responsible for a company. What should you do to reduce your business' exposure to problems arising form Y2K problems. The subtitle: 'Contingency Planning, Business Continuity, and Avoiding Litigation' just about says it all. If you are in business (and that may well include many who are self employed or who trade through their own companies (selling their services)) I think you might be well advised to read this book sooner rather than latter.
Of course you are free to take the line that the best form of risk-management is to pretend there aren't any. You may be right, and then you will be in clear profit but what if you are wrong?
