World Scientific's Tsunami: To Survive A Tsunami book has been awarded the 2009 Book of the Year Award by the Japan Society of Civil Engineers.

Published in October 2009, Tsunami was quickly acquired by many researchers and academics who wanted to have a deeper understanding on the subject matter especially in the light of tsunami disasters in recent years.

Renowned Professor Emeritus Yoshimi Goda from Yokohama National University commended the book as being "indispensable for depicting real images of tsunami threat" and added that usually only one book was selected "from a recommended list of around 20 other titles", thereby highlighting the prestige of the Award.

The book provides comprehensive scientific information and knowledge survival tips on how to survive a tsunami and is especially useful to people who live in and around tsunami-prone areas, and to travelers who may visit such areas. It imparts precious information obtained from actual tsunami disasters and fundamental knowledge of tsunami science for survival. It also lists measures for tsunami disaster mitigation and describes a tsunami's occurrence mechanism as well as how a tsunami could be forecasted.
