-Stephen C. Morris, MD, MPH (Annals of Emergency Medicine, Volume 67, no. 6: June 2016)

We recently experienced a surge of patients in our emergency department with tear gas exposure from a riot. After the event, I consulted the book and there were two succinct chapters that related to this event. Looking forward, I intend to spend some time really engaging with this book and saving it for reference as more disasters are inevitable.the book feels not only comprehensive, but truly definitive.
