Product Description


Economics expert Randall Bell has teamed up with "New York Times" best-selling author, Donald T. Phillips, to produce this fascinating page-turner. It is a quick read that educates and enlightens every student of history. History has taught us that, rather than hiding from disasters, we should face them, learn from them, and do all in our power to prevent them from happening again. The book provides the means to do just that. In each chapter, the anatomy of a great disaster is analysed and discussed. Vivid pictures and compelling prose are used to bring the event alive. Randy Bell examines the present day disaster site and relates the economic impact of the event and ends each chapter with his unique personal insight and the succinct, important lessons learned.

Format:Perfect Paperback
This is a very interesting book. I love the approach that's taken to show how we can all learn from history and also from our mistakes in history. The book focuses on 10 of the most well known disasters in the world and how we can prevent them in the future. I definitely recommend this book.
