"I wish David had written this book 15 years ago!  When I first hired on to a full-time fire department, I had no fire or EMS experience, and a book like this would've made a fantastic map of good roads to travel on, pitfalls to avoid, and lessons to learn.  Required reading for anyone, career or volunteer, who is serious about the fire service and making their way in it."

This book should be read by every aspiring firefighter and rookie firefighter.  Unfortunately, many firefighters do not have mentors to guide them throughout their career.  However, this book presents priceless information that every firefighter should know to help them achieve greatness.  It is the embodiment of paying it forward. As a fire officer who is passionate about mentorship in the fire service, I also encourage senior firefighters and officers to read this book.  It contains critical information that everyone should pass down to the next generation to properly shape the future of the fire service.
