A great tale! Live vicariously thru Caroline Paul, sister of actress Alexandra (Baywatch). Her dream is becoming a fireman... saving lives with courage and compassion. In spite of the adversity against her, she struggles on with passion and integrity. An inspiring read!

Loved the book. Being a native of San Francisco it was a good look inside the SFFD. Things have changed over the years (we have a woman Fire Chief right now 2011) but some things will still take time to change. Very good read, well written.

Living in San Francisco I felt like I was part of this book as I remember many of the incidents (the worse the fire where firefighters were killed when the garage door shut). Having worked at the Fire Museum in SF which is attached to a fire station I can say this really tells it like it is. There is now a woman as Fire Chief but that has not helped the situation in the ranks. Very good read.

Very interesting story of what it is like to be amoung the first female firefighters in the mid 1980s.

I really enjoyed this book. You had a front row seat to what it was like being one of the first female fire fighters in San Fran 'back in the day'.
Caroline's experience's are true and will make any woman proud.

This being the 'revised' edition does not take away from the original and is a great read.
