A good friend once said about Chase Sargent that he's "a very intelligent man, but he sure does tick people off sometimes."

Sargent doesn't disagree. He may have made some people mad, but he wishes he had done it more often to get this point across: "Leadership-in all aspects of life-is sorely lacking."

The second edition of From Buddy to Boss: Effective Fire Service Leadership reinforces the fact that the fire service is screaming for leaders as men and women discover that leadership is important to their existence and success. Being a firefighter can be tiring and frustrating, but it can be rewarding. It's not only about the job, "but also about raising kids, managing your life, and trying to be a good person, attached to God, country, family, and friends," says the author. Many leaders today are surrounded by external politics, hidden agendas, ?scal constraints, and manipulative people. Consider these factors when navigating your career.

Sargent knows from decades of experience that simply reaching the top of the organizational ladder does not make you a good leader. Before he went into teaching this subject, "It became apparent very quickly that the leadership and human resources training being provided was as scarce as water in a desert and that the ?re service was thirsty."

This new second edition includes must-read topics on leadership lessons from the War in Iraq, knowing death in the fire service, and providing leadership in large-scale disasters.

This book will change your life.
