'This book is an authoritative reminder of the journey to gain acceptance of human error as intrinsic to open systems operations as we enjoy it today, portrayed by the witty pen of one of its topmost trailblazers. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and found the segment on organizational accidents a particular gem.'Daniel E. Maurino, formerly Coordinator of the Flight Safety and Human Factors Study Programme, International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) 'This book is intended for students, academics and safety professionals of all kinds who are interested in avoiding breakdowns that can cause serious damage to people, assets and the environment. It can also be read as a highly entertaining, personal journey through his professional life.' The RoSPA Occupational Safety & Health Journal, December 2013 A simplified version of the theories that have been the basis of his career, A Life will be especially valuable to operational personnel whose jobs bear on safety, without specializing in it. Such readers could range from top-floor executives to frontline workers. Even specialists who are familiar with most of the content should appreciate the book's concision, smooth flow and glimpses into its author's personality.' Aerosafetyworld, February 2014 'This is a lovely book. James Reason has spent more than 40 years exploring errors and this short and well written book traces his interest and where it has led. It starts with a foreword by Erik Hollnagel, another eminent writer on error and industrial safety, and then a preface in which the author sets the scene.' Australian & New Zealand Journal of Health, Safety and Environment, vol. 30, no. 2

James Reason was Professor of Psychology at the University of Manchester from 1977 until 2001, from where he graduated in 1962. He has written books on motion sickness, absent-mindedness, human error, aviation human factors, managing the risks of organisational accidents, managing maintenance errors, and the human contribution: unsafe acts, accidents and heroic recoveries. He has worked in a wide variety of hazardous industries, though patient safety is now his primary concern. In 2003, he was awarded an honorary DSc by the University of Aberdeen. He is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society, the Royal Aeronautical Society, the British Academy and the Royal College of General Practitioners. He received a CBE in 2003 for his services to reducing the risks in health care.

A nice resource, but not what I expected 5. Januar 2014
Von Irfan A. Alvi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This isn't the book I expected. The blurb refers to "the main way stations on James Reason's 40-year journey in pursuit of the nature and varieties of human error" and a "very personal perspective", so I expected a memoir. Instead, I'd say the book is about 10% memoir and the rest is a survey of thinking related to safety and failure, beginning with a focus on psychological aspects and gradually broadening out to encompass organizational, social, and systemic aspects. This sequence happens to follow the chronological progression of Reason's thinking on these matters during his career, which also roughly parallels the thinking of the safety community in general during this period. At ~125 pages, the book is short, but there's a lot of content packed into it, so it requires concentration and isn't a breezy read - the feel is more like a literature review (though there are few citations to the literature). As such, I recommend this book primarily to those seeking an introductory overview of safety thinking or a synoptic review.

Disappointed 1. Mai 2014
Von Richard J. Hornick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was expecting more. Reason is a brilliant person. By virtue of the title as well as the clever cover, I was expecting more in the way of illustrative error examples, rather than the more scholarly expository of his theoretical error models. Instead, he gives only a few error events, and then leaps into rather sophisticated perceptual and behavioral discussions.

Outstanding 6. April 2014
Von Dan Wood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Another outstanding effort from Mr. Reason. If the human element and more specifically, human error, is your interest, then this book is a must. James Reason is one of the foremost experts in this field and not only does this shine through in his work, he also passes it on so eloquently.
