We have contacted the seller and had no response to date. We received the book several weeks ago and I sent a note to them at that time. The book was a preview of the material with the intention of purchasing more for our organization but having been charged for new book and receiving used has changed our minds about the purchase. Had I been advised that the new ones were out of stock and that we would be charged for used, that would have been different.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware of edition Feb. 18 2013

This review is not about the quality of text book, speed of shipping etc. This about making sure you get the right edition. I was looking for the 3rd edition of the Practical Loss Control Leadership series, which was published in 2012. This book is over $100 at the university bookstore, so I went on Amazon to see if I could save some money. After receiving the book from Amazon I noticed that it was a "revised edition", published in 1996. The two editions are substantially different. Practical Loss Control Leadership, Revised Edition is of no use. Buyer beware. Happy reading!

This book is not the THIRD EDITION! If you are doing any OH&S classes to NOT buy this book, make sure it clearly states Third Edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars That book was Used! Nov. 23 2009
When I purchased the book, Practical Loss Control Leadership I thought I was buying a new, unused book. After more than 2 weeks, I finally received the book, only to find it was a used book. There was even highlighting throughout the text. The previous owner was obviously using the book as a part of a course study or in the course of his/her work. I paid over $70 for a used book - I would have liked to know that it was going to be a Used, marked up copy of the book.

I'm not sure if the book I received is the most recent edition - the reprint of this copy is 1992.

Overall my experience of purchasing this book through Amazon wasn't that great. The actual seller (anybooks.ca) has offered me a credit...but the letter is written so poorly it seemed to make me more suspicious - almost seemed like a scam to get my VISA number.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for the safety professional July 11 2000
By Steven Hodgins - Published on Amazon.com
This book contains 17 chapters that define basic concepts of loss control in an informative, easy to read format. The strength of this book was the author's straight forward practical approach to loss control leadership. An effective methodology to implementation, with a motivating style of writting made this my most popular book in OH&S to date. This book is one of the few that have also become a permanant addition to my reference library. The books weakness was that it did not cover the historical aspects in great detail (a weakness that may reflect the reviewers interests). The book was a text used at British Columbia Institute of Technology for it's OH&S program.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical Loss Control Leadership Aug. 20 2012

I am biased. I worked for the authors and their company International Loss Control Institute. Even it I did not, I would still rate this a 5. Their book is and will continue to be a classic standard reference for safety/loss control practitioners. Highly recommend it for the foundational knowledge and tools it provides.

This is the correct book but the wrong edition. The book I received is not the book pictured. 1st edition is missing necessary chapters for my class. I'll have to reorder. On a positive note the sellers were very nice.
