Another book that flew below radar was "A Plague on Your Houses." It discussed how consultants decimated fire departments and the societal and health crises that ensued across the Country. I liked a few of the books in your reading list. I especially liked the fact that none of the pop-culture feel good books/authors were present. While "Tipping Point," "Freakonomics," and "Who Moved My Cheese" have a few good sound bites in them, they lack the quintessential of what they are talking about. A few books to add to your list, be it deep reads are, "The Black Swan" by Nassim Taleb, "The Big Sort" by Bill Bishop, and "Gut Feelings" by Gerd Gigerenzer. These are the authors that Gladwell, Levitt, and others stole their ideas from...These books tell us why we can't predict, why people go and do what they do, and why everyone knows it, respectively.
There is a book out called "Rescue Men" about some guys in one of the Rescue companies in The Boston F.D. I haven't read it, but I've heard it's good. Ray Downey's book "The Rescue Company" is pretty good, but more of a text book than a collection of stories. I've read "Last man Out", too. It was a great book.
So many books to read. Good thing I have quite a few more years before I retire. Thanks to all of you brothers for the list. Its nice to be reminded of all the men and women out there that are passionate about this job.
