Beating the Credit Crunch -
How to Survive and Thrive in the Current Recession
Written by Robert Craven
Here is a book with a short shelf-life, hopefully a few months. Realistically it might last a couple of years.
The aim of this book is simple – to show you how to trade your way out of the credit crunch; to make money and get on with your life.
Buying this book does not give you:
- a ‘one size fits all’ recipe for survival; no such thing could ever exist
- a solution to your problems; the solution lies in your ability (combined with that of your chosen advisers) to diagnose the causes from your current symptoms, prescribe a solution in the form of a clear Action Plan, and make things happen for your business.

It’s not about size
The size of the book belies the quality of its content, and actually the value of the book cannot be counted in the number of words. In fact, the number of words is irrelevant. What is relevant is what decisions you make and act upon for your business. This is not a book to read and digest; this book is more of a catalyst to stimulate you to take action and now!
“Nobody said it was easy…” (Coldplay)
As a veteran of two previous recessions, I know just how tough it can be watching sales/leads/cash/goodwill dry up in front of you. So you are probably going to have to make some tough decisions. But it is possible to come out the other end of this with a smile on your face.
