This has been one of the best books I have found on WMD and how they impact operational first responders. I have quite a few different resource books by Bevelacqua and they are all excellent. I have actually used this book as a resource for courses I have developed on WMD Awareness. Unlike a lot of other books in the same genre it was well researched and thoroughly edited. I did find any mistakes unlike a lot of other books I have seen in this same field. Keep up the good work.
