This was just one of many times I have bought the book. It is an excellent guide for firefighters & wives. I like to give a copy to couples new to the Dallas Fire Department. I wish I had it during my husband's 30 years on DFD rather than learning the hard way.
I am the widow of a Captain with the Dallas Fire Department. I have many young friends on the department and have been concerned for quite awhile for their mental health and their marriages. The ideas in this book offer real help for the everyday struggles. So my extra money goes to buy this book for my young married and soon to be married firefighter friends.
I believe that it is a good read for the person in the service, but even more so for the spouse. It is also good for those that have not gotten that serious yet. Can really start a much needed conversation.
