Review

"Written in clear, quick, conversational prose, "Crisis Tales "provides a wealth of sensible advice for handling crises of all sizes and shapes, whether affecting individual businesses, institutions or nations...from one of our leading crisis-meisters."--The Washington Times "When a controversy arises involving a public figure, Lanny Davis is the 'go-to guy' for journalists. The irony is that if this book is read--and actually heeded--by more politicians and celebrities, there will be less need of Lanny's services."-- Carl M. Cannon, editor of RealClearPolitics Praise for "Scandal" "To many conservatives, Lanny Davis is a cherished anomaly: a thoughtful liberal, a decent guy, and a fair-minded Democratic operative who loves his country even more than he loves his party."""--Michael Medved, nationally syndicated conservative talk show host and author of Right Turns ""Crisis Tales" offers simple crisis management rules, told through riveting true-to-life stories, that can help everyone facing a business, governmental, or personal crisis. In my experience, Lanny applies his unique combination of legal, media, and experience to get the facts out early, develop the right strategy to communicate them effectively, and find the "sweet spot" solution among competing viewpoints to solve the problem." --Gary Lauer, chairman and CEO, eHealth Inc "Our company turned to Lanny Davis when we faced a legal problem in Washington. He found a way to combine his considerable legal, media, and political skills to find a solution satisfactory to all parties. This book demonstrates the effectiveness of his multi-disciplinary approach to crisis management."--John P.
