This was required for my BSN studies. Really thick, heavy book that covers the numerous and varied areas of disaster and emergency response and preparedness quite thoroughly. Even my mom who's a cook found it interesting to look through.

I am a nurse, enrolled in a public health program. The book's focus was too narrow to be used as textbook in a Public Health program.

Required for my studies as an RN. Latest and up to date version of what you need to know when working in any disaster situation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh. My. God. Would anyone purchase this book if not required for a class? 14 Feb. 2014
By T. Moore - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is as dry and mind-numbing as it could possibly be. I defy anyone to read this and remain conscious. It is like propofol in paper form. Apparently I have the version where many, but not all, typos and layout errors were corrected. There is nothing in this book that you could not find online. If you need a textbook with a theory-level, buzzword heavy approach to disaster management, this is it.

If you want actual skills and strategies, there are many better resources and self-paced online classes available via FEMA. If it is required by your RN or BSN program, like mine, than here you go. Good luck.
