I have read many of Tom Cook's books. I have seen him lecture and run seminars and business meetings. There is no one more fully informed with practical advice and counsel on how best to manage a global supply chain successfully. Since the unfortunate events of 9/11, the global community, both in the United States and abroad, has realized the importance and relevance of introducing compliance and security in their global operations. Tom has taken a leadership position on this subject and has gained invaluable insight into corporations and just what it takes to raise the bar of compliance and security in their global operations. This book addresses these issues in a comprehensive, no-nonsense approach that keeps the reader interested and fully engaged. It is detailed, articulate, and full of contemporary as well as timeless recommendations to help supply chain executives manage their global responsibilities. As with all Tom's books and the work he does, I am a supporter and can earnestly recommend this book as an important tool in combating the effects of terrorism in managing your global supply chain. --Spencer Ross, President, World Trade Institute & Former Chairman, NY District Export Council
