The author reflects on the books that could enhance not just the work attitude of fire fighters in the U.S. but also their personality. She discusses several books used by the U.S. Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Virginia that impart a sense of value and trait, increase professional knowledge, and improve analytical and reasoning skills. She suggests that the reading program employed by the marines could also work for the fire service sector.
