Jessica What a great list! I've read a few of these books and have been looking for more like them to read. My thanks to the creator and the voters :D


message 3: by Cecelia (new)

Cecelia This is a great list, thanks


message 4: by Paul (new)

Paul Can we get World War Z off the list?! lol This is a great list, and though funny, discredits the legitimacy of the list with its inclusion! Thanks!


message 5: by Dara S. (new)

Dara S. Agreed. I took it off.


message 6: by Paul (new)

Paul Woohoo! Also, someone put Stephen King and Louis Sachar on here. But great list!


message 7: by M. (new)

M. West I am actually having a bit of a hard time with this. I am looking for books on disaster response/recovery, emergency management.

I thought it would be an easy thing to find a book like this on hurricane Katrina but all the books provide different perspectives, but none from FEMA or other emergency management teams. I want to read about the struggles of the organizations getting safety nets in place and how they did it, what worked, what failed, ect. I am not looking for books from the first hand perspectives of police or firemen, more of the planning area.

Do any of these books fit the bill? Thanks!


message 8: by Michele (new)

Michele Great List! But #69 The Given Day (Coughlin #1)
by Dennis Lehane is fiction.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It is indeed; will remove.
