The book is a one stop shop about bushfire behaviour and its prediction that puts the studies of past and current masters in perspective. It is a big step forward in the progress of the science of bushfire behaviour and prediction. It is designed to encourage enquiry and scrutiny. It is transparent. Findings are explained and are either backed by research or by theories that explain what is going on, theories that will eventually be tested and either confirmed or revised. This is how the science will progress.
