From the Inside Flap
"Jensen and McPherson do an excellent job of explaining common misconceptions about fire, the fundamental basis for failed fire policy, and how incentives for continuing traditional fire prevention approaches underlie many of today's problems. Living with Fire makes the case that a significant overhaul of policy and management approaches will be needed if we are to coexist better with fire."Dennis C. Odion, Southern Oregon University

The sample download was not an accurate portrayal of the the true content. The author minimalized the impacts of fire suppression on fire regimes and chose to focus on "global climate change" with very few citations to back up the claims. The author struggled with a number of facts including the date of the Cerro Grande Fire. The Cerro Grande Fire occured in 2000, not 2002.
I support some of the final policy recommendations made by the author but was overal disappointed in the book.
