Overview of Playing by the Rules: How Our Obsession with Safety is Putting Us All at Risk Book

In The Interests of Safety: The Absurd Rules That Blight Our Lives and How We Can Change Them is a book that examines some of the absurd rules that are followed in today's world, in the name of health and security. It is co-authored by Tracey Brown and Michael Hanlon. In The Interests of Safety: The Absurd Rules That Blight Our Lives and How We Can Change Them focuses on why people tend to follow rules without ever questioning their intended purpose. This engrossing dissection highlights how rules and regulations dominate everyday life, many of them completely unnecessary. For example, workers on an oil rig have to fill a one-page safety-assessment form. However, a school teacher has to fill a thirty-page questionnaire when taking their students to the beach. Brown and Hanlon debunk rules that are exploited in the name of protection. In many cases, the authors have found that some rules are entirely unofficial and made-up, yet continue to be followed. This book teaches readers that they should ask for an explanation when told to follow a rule that doesn't make sense. The authors provide reasonable advice and their conclusions range from the startling to the staggering. In The Interests of Safety: The Absurd Rules That Blight Our Lives and How We Can Change Them is a book that campaigns against the trinity of official self-importance, commercial exploitation and media hysteria. Published in 2014 by Sphere, this book is available in paperback.
