I thought I was ordering a different version of this book. However, it was in great condition. Some highlighting inside. Works for the purpose of my class. Not a bad purchase.

Format: Paperback
Although the information in this book may all be factual, it is the most poorly written textbook I've read. I'm a professional proofreader and lifelong (60 years) student of writing styles, as well as a writer of newspaper and magazine articles. These authors violate just about every tenet of good style there is. The short list includes extreme unnecessary use of passive voice, poor word choice, ridiculous repeated statements of the obvious coupled with unexplained use of arcane terminology. I'm using this as the required textbook in a course in Industrial Safety, or I wouldn't bother finishing it. I blame the publisher for poor editing as much as I do the authors. I will grant that basic explanations of safety terms and government regulations do not make for compelling reading, but there's no excuse for using what I call the "--and then also too--" school of expository writing. Moreover, I object to the extended use of the Herbert Hoover doctrine of economics ("When a lot of people are out of work, unemployment results") and the Edmund G. Brown theory of social relations ("The burden of poverty lies mainly with the poor.") Maybe this is the best book available on this subject; if so, we have a desperate need for someone to write another.

This is a wonderful book designed for the student or the safety professional. It covers most of the major points safety practitioners deal with and gives good reference material for further study. I highly recommend this book.
