Episodes in Memoir of a Fire Chief recount over forty-five years in the life of a firefighter, beginning with the author's entry as a green rookie in the 1960s, to becoming a fire chief dedicated to protecting the lives of firefighters. Jim Sparr's story touches on countless issues along the way including: appearance & substance; character & values; race & gender; and employee development. Jim shares stories of how the influences of family, friends, people we admire, professions, experiences, religion, and education shape our being. Sometimes he's the guru dispensing wisdom, other times the one receiving life's lessons. Jim is always intense whether he's condemning certain political practices, identifying problems in our educational system, or expressing humor at the simple wonders life provides. He believes that paying attention in life will improve one's thinking ability, help separate substance from appearance, and teach one how to think versus what to think. His individual stories will demonstrate for the reader how to pay attention.
