Summary
Catastrophic failure is all around us. From the disastrous Post Office software, which led to a multimillion-pound lawsuit to the mix-up at the 2017 Oscars Awards ceremony, these errors are the unfortunate ramifications of our advancing world. But what causes such ruinous mistakes? And can we do anything about them? In Meltdown, experts in disaster prevention, Chris Clearfield and Andras Tilcsik, use real-life examples from around the world to reveal the errors in thinking, perception and system design that lie behind both our everyday errors and disasters like the Fukushima nuclear accident. But most crucially, Meltdown is about finding solutions. The result is eye-opening - one that will change the way you see our complex world and your own place in it
