My Review:

PUTTING OUT FIRES appears to have been written for the benefit of First Responders, but it can clearly be of benefit to anyone! With times being as they are today, so many of us are feeling the stress and anxiety of daily life. Michael Hampson explains in a straight forward manner how he improved his life and we can do the same. 

Expertly written from the heart, the author covers time management, eating habits, hydration, fitness and exercise. My favorite sections of this book, however, are the mental health recommendations. Getting outdoors, shifting your focus from negative to positive, experiencing love and finding your happy place. 

This is not a huge book. Only 104 pages. You could read it in an hour or two. But I don't recommend that you do that. I recommend that you read each section and then pause to think about what you just read. Let it really sink in. And I would also recommend that you get the paperback version of the book instead of the ebook since it is written in workbook style with pages you can fill out. 

PUTTING OUT FIRES is a must-read for those in high pressure jobs and for those of us who are simply feeling the pressure of life.
