This has a very corporate, "PowerPoint-ish" tone and feel to it. But it does give a useful look at the basic mapping processes and dedicated tech tools we can expect in this environment. It mentions Nassim Taleb and "The Black Swan," though it seems to miss or ignore some of his critiques of tools and methodologies such as we see here. It would be easy (all over again; remember the problems with over-reliance on VAR?) to be mesmerized by slick tools and data confections (the term "narrative fallacy" springing to mind). But that was always true, and is the fault of the humans in the loops, as these tools here are quite flexible and can, in the right hands, be very useful.
This is my first look at ERM, per se, and I feel well served here.
I certainly want an enterprise I invest in, or rely on, to have a good grip on these sorts of things. The environment has too many variables now to merely fly by the seat of one's pants.

Would you try another book from John J. Hampton and/or Steven Menasche?
I would never buy from this author again and don't recommend anyone buying his spam / advertising books.
What was most disappointing about John J. Hampton’s story?
This was the worst audio book I have ever listened to on Audible - full of hours and hours on end of advertising of his software products - irrelevant stories and chapters, wikipedia-style definitions instead of actual information that is usable... There were at least 4 hours of advertising of his software services / programs that he sells.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Advertising all the time.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
I would advise anyone to stay away from this piece of software advertisement.
