"Written from the perspective of an educator and practitioner, Bulgu and Islam's book offers a fresh approach to deal with crisis management in terms of strategic and financial decision-making processes in the much less-represented but continuously growing SME sector..... The book is clearly written, reader- friendly, and comprehensive enough to be used as a complementary textbook in related business courses."
