The Edge of Disaster can be considered both terrifying and inspiring. Stephen Flynn, a national security expert/advisor, puts the state of the nation in black and white and slaps readers in the face with it.

Normally I do not advocate books vs. faces, but in this case I must say “Bravo”. With straightforward logic and indisputable facts, Flynn gives a security assessment that should wake the dead (and, if he’s listened to, there will be fewer dead to awaken.)

He takes a roll call of the biggest dangers to the health of the nation: natural disasters like Katrina; the nonexistence of health insurance for those who need it most, the elderly and children; and of course the most looming threat of all, terrorism, which is becoming as much of a threat from homegrown nut jobs as from foreign ones.

In hard-hitting, honest language, Flynn makes his points about the necessity of an overhaul of America’s way of dealing with disasters, disclosed as a red neon message blinking incessantly from the pages of The Edge of Disaster: Rebuilding a Resilient Nation. This book should be read by all sentient beings - oh, and politicians - to awaken the endangered: all of us.
