Ok. I'll join your clan. And about my sister. She is my half sister in real life. She is coming over in a week or so. You can talk to her than. I also think leaving this place as a mounument is a good idea. How about we ask the warriors of this clan if they want to be in your clan. What is it called by the way?

I just bought this book for my very dear friend who is a volunteer firefighter for three companies. I Hope that he likes this book and I can't wait to read it!

This book was for me a real education into what the FDNY is about.The workings of the FDNY from a firefighter to the head man and the loss and pain off so many lost was for me a real wake up call.The more I read the more I learned and after reading some reviews I was reminded of the chapter about one of the FDNY union meetings I laughed then and I laughed now.Go beyond unionism and get a life I say.This book is a tribute to many FDNY people.All union people and HEROS but written by the BOSS so lets knock it? I dont get it but I am not a union man.

I found this book to be both real and sad. The stories of those lost on 9-11 as well as those lost before 9-11 were humbling and sad. This man has been thru and seen so much in his years with the FDNY. Like him or not it is a terrific book!

Amazed at how the author knew so little about command proceedures.while the brave firemen moved in to save lives he ran away at full speed' tittle of the book should be how to make money and stay a coward.
