This is a small book, more like a pocket-book guide really, and its fully packed with concise, factual information that can be used for reference by any practitioner.

For those adapting COBIT 5 and the new concepts, the book is straightforward and easily digestible… As a CISA and having executive IT roles in my past career, I recommend this book.
