Reviews:
  • Budar
Frankly, this book is probably going to piss off some in the traditional emergency response community. As well it should. Ignoring the structure of social systems when it comes to mitigating disaster has led to the exacerbation of one national embarrassment after another. There's been nothing like this in the field, comprehensive breakdowns of major disaster's and often the failings of emergency response and dire need for socially intelligent systems. Every civic administrator should read this important book.

Required reading for every current and future emergency responder, and for all those who train and support them. Epstein, Pawar, and Simon propose a new approach for tackling our worst-case scenarios, one that forces us to broaden our thinking. Emergency management is not just about fires, earthquakes, evacuations, and first responders. It requires considering people's economic reality, their social capital, their mobility, their trust (or lack thereof) in government; it requires thinking about towns and cities — their debt, the availability (or not) of private capital, their infrastructures. And it requires thinking about services — those that exist weeks before and weeks after emergencies, or don't. We need to think, in other words, about *social intelligence.* Here's hoping that this book joins the reading list of every emergency management program and every emergency manager across the country.

Most important book I've read in a long time. Explains (in a digestible way) what has been lacking in past disaster response situations, and how we can do better in the future. Highly recommended.
