Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the tradition of Mark Baker's Cops, more than 100 top firefighters describe the highs and lows of the world's most dangerous profession.

Fascinating and packed with emotion,THE FIRE INSIDE is a unique look at the unseen world of firefighters who risk their lives for strangers every day In their own words, these male and female heroes vividly describe how they cope with scorching flame, injuries, earthquakes, hazardous waste, and wildfire-and the rewards that keep them climbing back on the fire truck.

Steve Delsohn co-wrote the NewYorkTimes bestseller Out of Bounds with football star Jim Brown. He is also the author of Brother Sam, about Sam Kinison; The Emmitt Zone, about Emmit Smith; and numerous articles for People, Sport, and TV Guide.

"An emotional portrait of uniquely dedicated public servants that will leave readers weeping-or laughing at their gallows humor." -Publishers Weekly

"Harrowing...Vividly realistic." -The Washington Post

"In their unabashed style, firefighters tell it like it is." -Firehouse magazine
