Disaster Recovery Book Available in Electronic Edition

Book receiving critical acclaim from experts now available in Amazon Kindle edition

SEATTLE, Wash., September 5, 2008 – Technology author Peter H. Gregory’s 18th published book, IT DISASTER RECOVERY PLANNING FOR DUMMIES (John Wiley & Sons; $29.99; December, 2007), is receiving rave reviews from industry experts and professional reviewers.  The book is now available in electronic form on Amazon’s Kindle book reader.

According to Philip J. Rothstein, an industry expert on business continuity and disaster recovery planning and the owner of Rothstein & Associates, a disaster recovery planning consulting services firm, “Peter Gregory’s book helps to establish a realistic perspective for Disaster Recovery and provides a no-nonsense yet manageable foundation. He has identified many issues, techniques and tips which I found quite useful, despite my 25+ years involvement with business continuity and disaster recovery.”  Mr. Rothstein also wrote the Forward to the book.  According to Thomas Duff, 25-year IT professional and Amazon “Top 100” reviewer, “It would be tempting to make all sorts of snide comments about a Dummies book that wants to take a serious look at disaster recovery of your IT area.  But this is a Dummies title that you’ll actually go back to a number of times if you’re responsible for making sure your organization survives a disaster…  It’s actually the first book on the subject that I found interesting *and* readable to an average computer professional.”

IT Disaster Recovery Planning For Dummies is now available in Amazon’s Kindle electronic format.  This will enable owners of the popular Amazon Kindle to purchase the book at a reduced price and have an electronic edition of the book (and hundreds of others) readily available.  “Not only will this make the book more convenient for people to read, but having an electronic edition could be especially handy during a disaster or other emergency situation,” cites Peter H. Gregory, author of the book.  “When offices are shuttered or unreachable, this and other important books can be pre-loaded on Kindle readers and available as back-up references for emergency planners and responders,” he adds.

IT Disaster Recovery Planning For Dummies is available in paperback form at local book dealers, and also from online dealers such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Borders.  It is available as an e-book directly from the publisher, John Wiley & Sons, as well as for Amazon Kindle.
