Reviewer comments:

Colin Rudd, Chair of itSMF UK and one of the co-authors of the revised ITIL Foundation Handbook, said "I'm delighted that the itSMF UK Publications Group have been a key part of this important project to bring the Handbook in line with ITIL 2011. The pocket guide is an essential companion for those completing the Foundation Course and is particularly popular with the training organisations that I talk to on a regular basis."

"This updated publication builds upon the success of the previous edition that sold over 123,000 copies worldwide, ensuring that those studying for their Foundation Exam have an up-to-date study aid from the official publisher." Lucy de Best, ITIL Commissioning Editor.
