This month, I had a hard time deciding which of several great books to use for the book of the month. I have decided to share with you, “Predictable Surprises” by Max Bazerman and Michael Watkins. The authors make a lot of great points about what most of us would classify as “surprises” or “unknowns.” Using a lot of analogies and true stories, the authors explain how many times these “unexpected events” are predictable. As an emergency manager, a health and safety professional, or merely a person trying to work your way through each day, this is a good book about better planning and avoiding adverse outcomes.
When you have finished reading this book, drop me an email and let me know your thoughts: duane.hagelgans@millersville.edu
