“A Life in Error: From Little Slips to Big Disasters” Book Review
- Dan Boedigheimer
Since Dr. Reason has been researching and publishing for the better part of 40 years, I recommend this book, “A Life in Error,” as the first book of his that you read. The book does not go into the level of detail to learn the intricacies of each of his significant contributions to the field of human error, but places the journey in perspective. Then you can go back and deep dive into the theories that define how we look at human error today in aviation, including the widely known Swiss Cheese model. Chapter 14 highlights who actually came up with that winning label for Dr. Reason’s model.
