As an adjunct faculty member in the Emergency Management field who is also an active practitioner as well, I found this text to be an excellent, converstion provoking text that got my students thinking "what next?"
I have used this text on two occasions and I will continue to use this for several more classes next semester.
Mr. Noftsinger has a multi-facted grasp of the topic - he brings in policy, practitioners, politicos and just plain people.

I consider this text a "must read" for all students of emergency management.
