"In my 30 years of involvement in risk management, primarily around outdoor education, Beneficial Risks is the best book I have come across in the field.


Beneficial Risks is a comprehensive exploration of the multiple facets of risk management from the philosophy of risk to the assessment of incidents that occur during programming."

"More rules don't make us safer. More risk avoidance doesn't make us safer. Risk competence does make us safer. And Steve's book goes a long way to helping us get there.
