""Living with Fire is a breath of fresh air that does an excellent job highlighting the many misconceptions associated with wildland fire. The clarity with which the authors emphasize two key conceptsâ¿¿the importance of weather in wildfires and why the 'one-size-fits-all' perspective of fuel modification is counterproductiveâ¿¿is enough to make this book required reading for anyone dealing with wildfire.""â¿¿Richard Halsey, author of Fire, Chaparral, and Survival in Southern California ""Jensen and McPherson do an excellent job of explaining common misconceptions about fire, the fundamental basis for failed fire policy, and how incentives for continuing traditional fire prevention approaches underlie many of today's problems. Living with Fire makes the case that a significant overhaul of policy and management approaches will be needed if we are to coexist better with fire.""â¿¿Dennis C. Odion, Southern Oregon University
