BOOK REVIEWS OF LESSONS LEARNED II
(From the Journal of Experiential Education, 2006; reviewed by Robert B. Kauffman, Ph.D.). "The risk management and accident prevention information contained in Lessons Learned II is excellent for the reader who is interested in expanding his or her safety knowledge. The book is informative, contains new information and insights, and is a good compendium of the industry's safety standards. ... It was Ajango's stated hope in the introduction that people in the outdoor industry would share their successes and mistakes and learn from a common past. By using in-depth case studies, she has succeeded in this objective. [Lessons Learned] makes an important contribution to the outdoor industry."
(From the Victoria [Australia] Outdoor Education Association, 2006; reviewed by Jarrod Paine). "[Lessons Learned II] is a real eye opener and definitely has you gripped as raw tragedy pours out from the pages, coupled with the aftermath of those affected both at the family and organizational levels. ... As I was reviewing it, attempting to stay detached from the content in a reviewer's frame of mind, I felt like a person going past a car crash who can't help but glance across at it; you know you shouldn't look, but you can't resist all the same. The basic blow-by-blow nature of this book takes you through in-depth, chronologically precise accounts of serious events as they unfold. ... The overall message of the book is that if you have a weak management plan or staff inexperience coupled with an unfortunate tragedy, you'll wish you had read this book rather than starred in the next edition."
