No matter where he serves, every fireman has a singular purpose: to prevent the tragic loss of life. For Lieutenant Keith Schneider of the Brevard County Fire Department in Florida, guarding his every neighbor is a solemn responsibility. But how do first responders like him cope with the 24/7 grind of gruesome EMS calls, raging infernos, and internal political strife when there’s no real outlet available to them? Where do they turn when fighting the wars at home means there’s no escaping the memory of horrific sights, haunting sounds, brutal injuries, and devastating loss? How do they repair the damage to their psyches and, by extension, their personal relationships?
In To Guard My Every Neighbor: Inside the Fire, Lieutenant Schneider recounts some of the worst calls of his 30-year career in an effort to educate the public on the multi-faceted role of a fireman, raise awareness about PTSD in first responders, and provide would-be firemen with valuable information gleaned from his decades of experience. With exceptional courage and honesty, he offers an insider’s perspective of the profession, pulling no punches. From bogus lawsuits and leadership failures, to heroic rescues and miraculous recoveries, he’ll draw you into the stressful world in which first responders live and work in a never-ending effort to save lives and serve their communities.
To Guard My Every Neighbor: Inside the Fire will inspire you, surprise you, and even shock you. Most of all, it will renew your appreciation for the uniformed men and women in your community who go above and beyond the call of duty, often at great risk to their own lives.

In 2009, the infamous Santelli Rant ignited a nationwide grassroots movement against wasteful government spending. Known as The Tea (Taxed Enough Already) Party, the phenomenon spread like wildfire across the fruited plain, with the specific purpose of restoring Constitutional principles and fiscal sanity to Washington, D.C. By 2010, the everyday Americans who comprised the bulk of the Tea Party had made tremendous inroads by swinging the House of Representatives back to Republican control. It seemed that this political tour de force was well on its way to recapturing the Oval Office in 2012. But a funny thing happened on the road to the White House. What began as an earnest movement comprised of America-loving patriots was soon sabotaged by opportunists with a self-serving agenda. Combined with the naïveté of inexperienced candidates for office, nefarious schemes from Republican Party operatives, and a glaring lack of organization, it s no wonder the Tea Party s efforts to influence elections has fizzled out spectacularly. All is not lost, however. In his new book, Ego in a Tea Bag: How Greed, Corruption and Deceit Threaten a Great American Movement, author, blogger, and political activist Ken Crow delves into the roots of the Tea Party, exposes the profiteers of patriotism, and lays out a practical, workable plan for achieving the goal of limited government and securing the promise of the United States of America for generations to come.
