This was indeed a strong effort at a book about the busiest fire station in NYC (possibly the world) when it was written. The reader comes away with a solid understanding of what the experience is like. Tough, brave men who care about the community in which they serve -and most will never get the thanks they deserve despite risking life and limb. The writer is descriptive which is necessary when the scenes require so much detail. However, it was my opinion that the writer sometimes got in his own way- trying to do too much and be to lofty. He frequently quotes and references poetry which is all too the good but not what I am here for when reading a book of firefighting.
The narration is phenomenal. It is thoughtful and direct. The voice of this work genuinely tells a story rather than reading a script.
"Great book for all to read"
Great book for all to read or listen too, Great Narrator, Great Writer, Great Evetything

"Not what your ..."
led to believe this is about. Its a great story on Firefighters, but what they talk about is already general knowledge of any firehouse in this country. Save your money.
