    This was an interesting read. I enjoy reading about disasters and the chain of events that occur in order for them to happen. I'd not heard of the New London school disaster before, but I grew up in Australia so that may have something to do with it. I thought the methods of analysis Bob Mayer uses from his Special Forces training and experience were well adapted to discussing the causes of unfortunate events. The book is clearly written, and each event is summarised and then broken down into its causative factors, at least one of which is always human error, or ego (in the case of Custer). A very insightful read. I have also bought the second in the series and am looking forward to reading it next.
