Katrina Heron, Martha Baer, and Evan Ratliff talked about their book Safe: The Race to Protect Ourselves in a Newly Dangerous World, published by HarperCollins, at the Center for Engineered Innovation in Mountain View, California. The authors were joined by Daniel Prieto and William Crowell to discuss the challenges society faced regarding protection from terrorist threats and other safety concerns. The panelists examined technologically sophisticated methods of security and profile several of the problem solvers across the country.

He lives with his wife in Greenwich, England. Evan Ratliff is a regular contributor to Wired and Ready Made magazines whose work has also appeared in Outside, the New Yorker, and the New York Times.

If our society is the most technologically sophisticated on Earth, then why can't we protect ourselves from terrorists and other threats to our safety and security?

This is the question that frustrates—and scares—all of us today, and the answers have proved maddeningly elusive. Until now. Through dramatic, enlightening, and often entertaining narratives, SAFE makes visible—and understandable—the high-stakes work being done by some of the most ingenious problem-solvers across the country and around the world, people committed to creating real and dependable security in the twenty-first century.

The characters in these pages, from scientists and engineers to academics, entrepreneurs, and emergency workers, take us into a fascinating world of inquiry and discovery. Their stories reveal where our greatest vulnerabilities lie and where our best hope deservedly shines through. They show why the systems we rely on to protect ourselves can also be exploited by others to create catastrophe—and what we can do to outsmart the terrorists. We have ample proof that terrorists will go to great lengths to understand how our technologies can be put to destructive use. Now it's time to ask ourselves a question: Are we willing to let them keep beating us at our own game? For the brilliant and colorful innovators in these pages, the answer is no.

Among them are Eric Thompson, an expert digital code breaker instrumental in deciphering hidden Al Qaeda messages; Mike Stein, a New York City firefighter turned technologist who is working to overcome the numerous communications failures of 9/11; Eve Hinman, who conducts structural autopsies at the scene of explosions, including the Oklahoma City bombing, in order to develop more blast-resistant designs; Ken Alibek, the infamous architect of the former Soviet bioweapons program and now an American entrepreneur working in the business of defending his adopted country from bioterrorism; Kris Pister and Michael Sailor, university researchers developing sensors no larger than a speck of dust; Rafi Ron, former head of security for Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv and now a leading strategist on U.S. airport security; Tara O'Toole, who stages doomsday bioterror scenarios in order to craft better biodefense systems; and Jeff Jonas, a high-rolling Las Vegas software entrepreneur whose methods for spotting casino cheats might just have uncovered the 9/11 plot.

Readers of SAFE will come away understanding the unique challenges posed by technological progress in a networked, and newly dangerous, world. Witnessing the work of this gathering force of innovators up close, they'll be inspired by the power of the human intellect and spirit—and realize how important the contributions of individual citizens and communities can be.

Very interesting read. I highly recommend it to everyone. I gives you an in depth perspective on what make our modern world tick, and actually sort of predicted some events that have hit the headlines since it's release.

This is an excellent book to inform persons with above average intellect regarding modern technology's ability to keep us safer in today's world. Every chapter is interesting and, it seemed, every sentence is packed with information. The book approaches safety from many different areas, and probably every person interested in the overall topic will say "Ah, I didn't think of that." Take your time reading this one, as there is so much information regarding the people and their ideas in several areas. My possible only complaint was there may have been too much information to digest - my reason for only giving it a four...

For the reader interested, but not expert in technologies, this is a fascinating account of the wide range of methods available or under development for combatting the terrorist threat. Some of the information is quite surprising, revealing the inadequacies of some conventional wisdom about appropriate ways of preventing or responding to terrorist attacks and ways in which we fail to take full advantage of familiar tools. Most impressive is the eminently readable manner by which the authors have made many advanced technologies and systems understandable to the lay reader. This will be a valuable reference book to assist the reader in the future to process news and discussions of public policy.

This book is filled with fascinating facts about our attempts to stop terrorism. I would like to thank the wonderful people that we read about in this book for making our country a safer place!
