They can walk through fire. They would sacrifice their own lives to save yours.

In the tradition of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Thoughts on Fire is a meditation on how to live a life that matters. Drawing on his dual life as a philosophy professor and firefighter, "Dr. Frank" begins a journey not just into the fire, but inside himself. The lessons of this voyage are not just about axes and hoses but hope, forgiveness and love.

"As a professor and a firefighter, Dr. McCluskey shifts gears easily between the metaphysical and the macho, pontificating in a pin striped suit by day and plunging into a smoky, flaming house by night."

-The New York Times

"It is a book that you will want to read again and again. It is a remarkable story that you will want to share with those you love."

-Dr. Robert Schachat, author of The Seven Conditions of Trust

"Thoughts on Fire is a book that is at once entertaining and enlightening"

-Dr. John Briggs, author of The Seven Life Lessons of Chaos
