I have actually been trying to reach Mr Klaene about this book. As I have had over 20 years in the fire service and read just about every manual/book made, this was unbelievably hard to read..I termed this particular book (after my second time through it) "Random Smatterings of Jargon Taken from Other Literature".Did anyone actually study or proofread this? Examples: one page it says "when higher ranking officer relieves lower ranking of cammand, consider assigning them to Operations Sec Chief" ... then a few pages later- "when another IC assumes command, the relieved officer should be assigned to Planning"..Or under "Delegating Authority" this is a sentence (quote) "Information exchange through good communication is key to managing the fire ground." .. This topic is not about communications OR firegound, its about DELEGATING authority.. Random, oddball interjections of non-relevant subjects and confusing/contradicting statements made me and everyone that I've talked to scratch our heads a bit.Those are examples from just a the first few pages, there is a lot more.. I hated this book for this reason.There may be relevant and important subject matter, but the way it is laid out confuses me. Almost like he threw (strategy/tactics) cue cards in the air, picked them up and started writing..
Reading this book for promotional process, we all know how exciting reading text books can be! I guess if I were to voluntarily choose to read a textbook, I would read this one.
This is a very good book; it well written and insightful. I'm reading it for a promotional exam and I am enjoying the delivery of the material.
Great book! I utilized this for a Strategy/Tactics course I taught at Eastern Oregon University and the students really liked it. Good luck.
