Portacom city by Paul Gorman

I am a "mainlander" and this little book bought back the earthquakes in a
 positive way, and from a different  view point. When natural disaster 
strikes, how much is the public entitled to know - even when the scientists
 aren't sure? What obligations do they have to a general public thirsty
for information about what will happen next? Should they wait until they 
have all the facts before they say anything? Caught up in the ongoing 
earthquakes, Christchurch newspaper journalist Paul Gorman struggled to
make sense of what the scientists were telling him. Was there more? 
Were worried  residents receiving the full picture? In this BWB Text 
Gorman describes his troubled ongoing dealings with government
scientists and the extraordinary challenges that confront reporters at times of crisis.
