Vernon Marquez Cope, Ph.D., is a former psychology professor and author of "The Washington Earthquake Handbook."
His work on earthquake preparedness resulted from the lack of information for the average citizen on understanding and surviving such a disaster. Dr. Cope spent several years researching the information and interviewing geologists, government officials and emergency preparedness personnel in order to produce a book that would serve as a guide for the general public. More than that, his experience and knowledge as a psychologist enabled him to write a book that is now considered a model for effectively informing and helping the public deal with a major catastrophe.
Dr. Cope's book became an instant best-seller shortly after its publication, and he gave over 100 presentations and interviews throughout the Pacific Northwest. He has been cited and written about in scores of book reviews and general articles, and his book was required reading for some college classes.
Formerly a long-time resident of Oregon, Dr. Cope is now living in western Pennsylvania.Review:
"An informative, well-written...book that serves as a model in communicating a grave public safety issue to the public." -- Michael L. Cummings, GSA Today (Geological Society of America), November 1994
