24: What Can Happen in A Day
Most people know that firefighting is an incredibly dangerous profession. The popular perception of firefighters is that they are fearless heroes who put their lives on the line to rescue people from burning buildings. That perception is mostly true. But there is so much more about firefighters and their community labor that is rarely revealed. 24—What Can Happen in a Day is a brilliant, intimate look into the daily lives of firefighters, from the experiences of Michael Ford Jr., who rose through the ranks from raw recruit to assistant fire chief. You will ride along with Chief Ford as he unveils the most interesting, disturbing, and adventurous firefighter escapades. You’ll laugh and wince in sympathy as Ford offers you a behind the scenes view into a world of secrets, failures, misfortune, exhilaration and triumph. You will cheer as you are encouraged to transcend perceived limitations to advance in life. And more than anything, you’ll be enthralled as you experience the inspiring, tragic, shocking, best and worst of humanity come to life, compelling you to treasure your family and friends with a more significant expression.Hilarious, profound, and deeply moving… this is a thrill ride you’ll never forget.

This book was excellent!!! It was such a great read to the point where I couldn't put it down. It made me laugh, cry, feel sad, and even anger. I enjoyed it so much; I am hoping for a Part II. I must say that I am regretting that I didn't become a Firefighter.😊 I would recommend this book to anyone whether your are an avid, causual or hardly-ever reader.
