This is the first book by a former high government official about the realities of both natural and manmade disasters as they impact the public. Free from excuses, the book begins with Brown's experience during Hurricane Katrina, the largest federal response to a natural disaster in U.S. history. The realities of dealing with disasters are discussed in this timely book, one that warns us of calamities yet to come as Brown and Schwarz soberly detail what disasters are preventable and what, tragically, will not be.
