From the Author:

My professional career parallels the development of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Upon retirement, I have chosen to chronicle my thoughts and experiences with the NFIP and try to ascertain its successes and failures. In this volume I have also developed some concepts of how the Program can be made more successful through a closer integration of its basic precepts with emerging technological developments in the field of emergency disaster amelioration.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From Chapter 2: Solutions to problems are simple, if the problem is not too complex. Take Noah, for example. His problem was to save himself and his family. Only eight persons. He had been told of a flood and to prepare a boat. The boat had no means of steering and no means of propulsion; just a big box to float those who would be saved from the deluge...When the problem is one like that of Noah, the solution is simple.
