• "An inspirational memoir from an extraordinary woman. The Heat of the Moment does for the fire service what Adam Kay’s This Is Going to Hurt did for the NHS. A humbling, jaw-dropping read which redefines what is possible in life"

    Viv Groskop
  • "Gripping, heart-stopping and profoundly reassuring. Thank heavens for such courage."

    Sue Black, author of All That Remains
  • "A vivid reminder of the horrors that firefighters face daily - and the debt of gratitude society owes them . . . This book challenges assumptions about who firefighters are, and about what women can do."

    The Guardian
  • "[One of] the wonder women of our emergency services"

  • "An immersive insight into a job which few of us could do, by a woman whose award-winning research into decision-making in the emergency services has transformed policy at a global level."

  • "An inspirational woman"

    Good Housekeeping
  • "Inspirational . . . a powerhouse"

  • "The Heat of the Moment places the reader at the centre of life-or-death situations . . . and sets out a mini-charter for the sorts of decisions most of hope we shall never have to make, such as how to save first, and when instinct should override procedure."

    The Guardian
  • "Homeless as a teenager, Sabrina Cohen-Hatton has spent the last 18 years dealing with everything from fires to car crashes and terrorist attacks. Who better to write a book about life-or-death situations?"

  • "A riveting account of the events the author has experienced, endured and overcome with courage, commitment and determination. This compelling book tracks her life, work and ambition in equal measure . . . This book presents a wonderful insight into the human side of firefighting and the decision-making of a talented and professional female fire officer."

    Simon Pilling, Chief Fire Officer (retd)
