This is a soft covered book measuring 6 inches by 9 inches and has 82 pages. It is memoirs of a volunteer firefighter from a small town in New Hampshire who took an interest in buffing the big city of New York, but not only that, but riding from the busiest firehouse in the world (Engine 290 and Ladder 103 of the East New York section in Brooklyn) and also from Rescue 4 which covered the Borough of Queens.. Get yourself comfortable as you start because before long you will be at the edge of your chair while reading of the runs from unbelievable to unimaginable! Some may give him credit for driving into such a bad neighborhood to get to the station while others will think he is just plain crazy for doing the same! In any event, it may surprise you to know that he was not alone and that sometimes there was a waiting list for a particular day or night caused by other buffs wanting to ride.

Note: In the October book review there was a typo stating that the author was “not” deceased.. It should have stated “now” deceased.
