Publisher Comments:

In this updated and expanded third edition, seismic engineer Peter Yanev and risk management consultant Andrew Thompson explain how to prepare one's property to withstand a powerful quake, and how to protect one's family during and after the chaos. Residents of earthquake country learn why and how earthquakes occur, which construction methods are best suited for fault zones, and how to shore up existing buildings to survive the next big one. This comprehensive resource deconstructs complicated insurance policies, maps existing and suspected faults, and demystifies terms like "liquifaction" and "cripple walls."

About the Author

Peter Yanev, a visiting professor at Stanford University, has over 35 years of earthquake engineering experience.

Andrew C.T. Thompson is an earthquake risk management consultant at Arup Group. He lives in San Francisco, California.
