"Those involved in recovery after disaster are often too busy to document lessons learned and hardly ever able to return later to assess the long-term impact of their projects. To see Ian and David tap into over 40 years of recovery experience to produce truly independent lessons and suggestions for a way forward is extraordinary. Recovery from Disaster provides readers with a wealth of learning from the past and new ways of looking at that through a wide range of models. The book should be of great benefit to those currently involved in post-disaster work." - Theo Schilderman
