    Even if you are not an Officer or not even in the Fire Service this is a great book. If you want to be a good leader at any level this is a must read.

    I read this book and learned alot, it shows how to be a manager and relates it to fire fighting. This book will also help you become a better officer because it tells you some mistakes rookie officers make, what they learn from them and how to avoid them. It also shows you the importance of knowing what you are doing and making sure that you TAKE CARE OF YOUR MEN.

    One of the best leadership books I have ever read. I had the pleasure of attending Chief Salka's Firefighter Survival courses and I must tell you, he is a genuine leader and one of the most knowledgable fire service professionals I have ever met. This book is a must read for any current or future leader.

    The book really helped me become a better crew leader at work and has helped me when I have group projects at school. You don't even need to be in a fire department to use the advice in the book.
