Harry Carter's Management in the Fire Service is another extension of Harry's style: incoherent, irrelevant, and unreadable. For Harry, this book is yet another attempt to feign his way into the circle of the true leaders in today's fire service. In it's truest form, it is a pulpit from which Harry seeks to convince us that he really does have something both original and provocative to say. Unfortunately for Harry, it is just a rerun of what little we learned at Harry's train-wreck talk at FDIC 2000. His sentences are verbose and muddy, and he lacks a direction in his style, content, and in the arrangement of his outdated ideas. This book is a waste of paper, ink, money, and time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
