Praise for Auditor's Guide to Information Systems Auditing

"Auditor's Guide to Information Systems Auditing is the most comprehensive book about auditing that I have ever seen. There is something in this book for everyone. New auditors will find this book to be their bible-reading it will enable them to learn what the role of auditors really is and will convey to them what they must know, understand, and look for when performing audits. For experiencedauditors, this book will serve as a reality check to determine whether they are examining the right issues and whether they are being sufficiently comprehensive in their focus. Richard Cascarino has done a superb job."
