“After working on the materials for my book for over five years, I had reached a point of frustration. It seemed like every time I found myself at a good end-point, I became involved in another ‘Greatest [insert disaster name here] in Our Lifetime!’ event. I knew I needed help to get me over the hump. Scottsdale Multimedia turned out to be the answer. James Thompson and his team took all of my prior writing, spent time interviewing me, and then did a miraculous job in helping me to flesh out the final product! I may have finished the book without them – someday – but I’m glad I didn’t wait. Thanks, Scottsdale Multimedia!” Edward Minyard

Terrorist attacks, hurricanes, pandemic, earthquakes, tornadoes, oil spills, floods and tsunami – Ed Minyard has responded to them all. Over the past 10 years, Ed has been involved in almost every major crisis in and around North America – and one long-range mission to Japan. This book describes his adventures and presents a view that most have never seen – from inside the Heart of Chaos. Read of Ed’s experiences with politicians, heroes, tragic victims and yes, the inevitable crooks that always seem to be there to exploit these events. Ed tells it like it was – no holds barred. In the end, it’s the lessons from these terrible events that matter. Ed expresses those lessons with straight-talk, peppered with a bit of (sometimes dark) humor. Above all else, this book will educate the reader in the subject of preparedness – but only if you take the lessons to heart. That part is up to you.
