Successful candidates who have purchased Capt Bob's Becoming a Firefighter had this to say:

"Great book!  You do need to practice selling yourself!  The information in the book will open up your way of thinking.  I have received 3 offers in the last 2 months and I owe it much in part to your book."  Ted from Miami

"Capt Bob has written a book to help anybody that is serious about a firefighting job.  It is ironic that a person would want the easy answer for oral board questions, as it is the exact opposite of what his program teaches you.  He arms the candidate with good information and lets them develop their answers with nuggets from their life experiences.  I followed his personal advice and recently received a job offer.  I recommend this book to anyone looking into getting into the fire department."  Bob from Seattle

"Without this book, I would still be trying to figure things out.  If you are serious about getting the call to be hired, this is the best investment you could make."  Mike from Chicago

"This book is a must-have resource for any person wishing to enter the fire service.  In this book, I received the most valuable source of information I could have ever gained as an aspiring firefighter in the last 4 years of pursuing this career.  Just about every page is full of valuable info and experience from someone who is very respected in the fire community.  I devoured it in 2 days it is well worth the modest price."
