Quotes and reviews

"…Xiaozhen summarizes problems he and other inspectors commonly find regarding safety and control systems in oil drilling operations. Because the standards are insufficiently known, he says, hidden dangers may or may not be identified depending on who is looking, and some of the remedies applied lack pertinence and feasibility."--Reference and Research Book News, December 2012
