"How refreshing and encouraging to have an entire book focused on applying a social marketing approach to impact one major social issue. The book not only inspires; it also instructs.

In the end, readers will understand how to develop a strategic social marketing plan that will provide the highest return on investment of resources." -Nancy R. Lee, University of Washington and Social Marketing Services, Inc.

From behavioral change models to social capital to program planning, this text outlines the fundamental components for leveraging modern messaging technologies to move the public from complacency to readiness. The content will be immediately applicable for any administrator interested in expanding their knowledge of the evolving and dynamic field of emergency management." -Lauren Ohl-Trlica, Arlington County Office of Emergency Management
