Authors Tracey Brown and Michael Hanlon are embarking on a campaign to challenge those difficult, expensive and frustrating safety and security measures that don’t make us any safer and actually sometimes put us in harm’s way.
Using a variety of case studies, statistics, news sources and their own personal experiences, they examine how media hysteria, commercial exploitation and self-importance increasingly restrict our freedom.
From questioning why it’s harder to get hold of a Kinder Egg in the US than a gun, to whether your mobile phone will crash a plane, In The Interests Of Safety is engaging, interesting and laugh-out-loud funny.
It also provides practical advice as to who to contact and what to ask for to encourage the reader to challenge and tackle ridiculous safety measures when faced with them.
