Review quote

The people must begin to prepare themselves. This book can help them do it. -- Dr. Ken Alibek, author of Biohazard and former director of Biopreparat, the Soviet Union biological weapons program It's a great thing that we have Aton Edwards to help inform and prepare the public. -- Richard Preston, author of The Hot Zone Aton's work is tremendously important. What we need to do for the next round is to get ourselves prepared.--Chuck D. Mr. Edwards is often called the city's foremost expert in personal disaster preparation -- he has appeared on the "Today" show, has taught his "Ready Up!" seminars to hundreds of participants with partners like the Red Cross and has set up, as part of the National Urban Self-Reliance and Preparedness Program, "incident command centers" across New York, like the one he recently created for the hip-hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa in the Bronx. -New York Times
