5.0 out of 5 stars A must have.
A must have book for firefighters of all ranks. Several new terms, and modern changes to construction. Be safe, and stay low

2.0 out of 5 stars The worst editing I have ever seen
The worst editing I have ever seen.
It was almost like I was reading 4 of his other books cut-copied-pasted to make one this book. Multiple times I found redundant paragraphs, run on sentences, (due to copying and pasting text together).
It is nothing against Chief Dunn, this is Penwell's screwup.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed reading, May 21, 2013

I enjoyed reading Vincent Dunn's second edition. The first and second edition were both written in a straight foward style without trying to over complicate basic notions and without including irrelevant information. In the second edition, I found it interesting to see a slight philosophical transformation towards giving defensive attacks more consideration and attention as a viable option...with emphasis on safety and conveying what is truly important in the grand scheme. Unfortunately, this book has an abundance of grammatical and punctuation errors...which makes reading into a choppy slow process. Poor editing is my only complaint. However, I am still an advocate of Vincent Dunn's thoughts and tactics.

This review is from: Collapse of Burning Buildings: A Guide to Fireground Safety (Hardcover)
This book is great to understand construction of buildings and how fire effects them. Even with the ever changing hybrid world of construction this book will hit all major points.Even the stories before the chapter could possibly be promotional senerios.This newest edition has all the same as the one before it, the only new section is about WTC. and few added details in each chapter.

This review is from: Collapse of Burning Buildings: A Guide to Fireground Safety (Hardcover)
Even if you have read (and reread) the first edition of this book, buy this and read it again. Should be on every officer exam reading list. Well written and so informative.
