    Comments about The Complete Bushfire Safety Book:

    An amazing book that covers every aspect of bush living and how to make your property safe. In depth information regarding fire behaviour, house designs, garden options, wind and its effects. You will refer to this book time and time again. A classic that has been updated. Fairly easy to read, though some parts are quite technical. However, the information as a whole is user friendly. It will fill you with confidence, empower you, get you started on your own bush fire safety plan and make you look at your property in a totally different way! Anyone living in bush, coastal bush or urban fringe areas should read this!

            Comments about The Complete Bushfire Safety Book:

            This is the only book I have seen that deals with bushfire issues so comprehensively and in a such a practical and well-researched manner. It is essential reading and re-reading for anyone living in or near the Australian bush. It should be government subsidised and given out free by the rural fire services.
