"This excellent book is another reminder of Chuck's top-shelf standing among security professionals." ~John J. Fay, author of Contemporary Security Management and owner-operator of learningshopusa.com

"You can't be in the security industry and consider yourself a professional without being in utter awe of Chuck Sennewald's remarkable career and accomplishments.  The most difficult textbook to write is one that is grounded in common sense and written in a simple and to-the-point style.  The fifth edition of his classic, Effective Security Management, is that kind of book.  The economy of words-saying all that needs to be said, but not a word more-is elegant. Revised and updated, this book should be in everyone's professional library-whether student or practitioner." ~John J. Strauchs, co-author of Private Security Trends 1970-2000: The Hallcrest Report II

"Of the five books authored or co-authored by Charles Sennewald that I have read, the fifth edition of Effective Security Management is simply the best. Chuck hit the bulls-eye on this, as its all-encompassing nature ensures that there is something in the book for security practitioners of every level." ~Leslie Cole, Sr., CPP, CST, Member of the Board - IAPSC, Council Vice President - ASIS International
