Dr. Maurice A. Ramirez and John Hedke
This book is not yet out, but keep an eye out for it. Why? Dr. Ramirez has decades of experience and takes a practical and comprehensive approach, i.e. that all disasters have common elements, and are more common than we think so we should all have the tools to deal with them.

Here is the book blurb: "Both natural and man-made disasters seem to occur with greater frequency. While these disasters can be devastating, the vast majority of casualties are caused by a lack of preparation. The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Disaster Preparedness teaches readers the right steps to prepare the home or office for a disaster, and about issues relating to insurance, evacuation plans, and building an emergency to-go pack."
