The latest from Leo Stapleton!
A must for every Stapleton fan. Firefighting Reflections is Boston Fire Commissioner Leo Stapleton’s eleventh book and his first non-fiction book since his 1990 publication of Commish. In Firefighting Reflections, Stapleton offers his own thoughts, insights, and personal opinions about the many duties and responsibilities of this most dangerous job. He also addresses how firefighters should conduct themselves in each of the six ranks of the average fire department organization. Since Stapleton has served in each rank during his thirty-nine year career at the Boston Fire Department, his qualifications to write about these positions–ranging from firefighter to commissioner-chief of department–are unsurpassed.
Written from a practical point of view, Firefighting Reflections is a hands-on, straightforward, no-nonsense description of the expectations, and the problems, encountered in each firefighting rank.
Firefighting Reflections is the distillation of all of Stapleton’s other works, from Thirty Years on the Line to Deputy. It will be an invaluable tool to help anyone in the fire service become more proficient in their chosen profession.
