    Yes, I have. After an old war story to get his points across at the begining of each chapter, the book seems to lean more toward managing people and situations than strictly a "fire story"book. I liked it though, and it did give me some insight into learning different approaches in dealing with the "people" side of the fire service.

    There are quite a few threads where people have suggested some good books, I recommend doing a search.

    Depends on your level in the fire service and what you plan to achieve. I think an excellent book for line officers (you know, the ones that do the work) and senior firefighters is "Fire Officers Handbook of Tactics" by john norman.
