On September 11th, 2001, we all saw the evidence of the strength, fortitude and perseverance of New York, her emergency workers and her citizens. In December of 2005, those same qualities were once again displayed in one man. Matt Long was a New York City Fire Department member for ten years and had seen the best and worst of his city—including the illegal transit strike of 2005. During that strike, he was run over by a charter bus in the streets of Manhattan—his hopelessly mangled body gruesomely merged into the twisted metal wreckage. He was given only 5% chance of escaping death. Matt not only survived—he recovered and fought back, showing the qualities we all have come to expect from the members of the NYFD. This is not just a book of one man’s recovery—it is a story of heart and soul, and a must read! - Stephanie

A main dish of "Wonderfully Sarcastic" with a side of "Entertainingly Insightful," The Waiter writes about a side of the restaurant business most of us have never seen…or wanted to. His stories are creative and witty, and depending on the story they will also elicit either a groan, laugh, or EWWW. There is no need to read from cover to cover, just pick a chapter title and ENJOY! - Stephanie
