‘Although risk management has brought greater safety to socio-technical systems, a new approach is still
strongly needed.…Those searching for a more profound understanding of system safety must read this book
as it is a practical guide to this new approach.’ – Akinori Komatsubara, Waseda University, Japan

’… a great resource for system designers and decision-makers in organizations in their endeavours to keep
the uncertainties and complexities of our world at bay.’ – Gudela Grote, ETH Zürich, Switzerland

’“Be prepared to be unprepared.” … Resilience engineering is a hot topic. Here is the one book that shows
you why!’ – Karl E. Weick, University of Michigan, USA
