Who recommends it: Hal Newman, Executive Director, NEMRC; Managing Editor, Big Med

Why Hal Recommends it:   Favorite quote: “A good community exists when its elders plant trees to shade the next generations.”   This is a well thought-out and beautifully put-together manual that deserves a much larger audience well beyond the humanitarian relief world.  There is very little in the way of self-serving extraneous BS and a whole lot of practical real-world guidance.
