102 Minutes : The Unforgettable Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers
"102 Minutes does for the September 11 catastrophe what Walter Lord did for the Titanic in his masterpiece, A Night to Remember...Searing, poignant, and utterly compelling." - Rick Atkinson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of An Army at Dawn
Hailed upon its hardcover publication as an instant classic, the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller 102 Minutes is now available in a revised edition timed to honor the tenth anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001.
At 8:46 a.m. that morning, fourteen thousand people were inside the World Trade Center just starting their workdays, but over the next 102 minutes, each would become part of a drama for the ages. Of the millions of words written about this wrenching day, most were told from the outside looking in. New York Times reporters Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn draw on hundreds of interviews with rescuers and survivors, thousands of pages of oral histories, and countless phone, e-mail, and emergency radio transcripts to tell the story of September 11 from the inside looking out.
An essential addition to any September 11 collection, this work reveals the story from inside the towers. Pieced together from the oral histories taken from interviews with rescuers and survivors and through emails, telephone calls, and emergency radio transcripts. This edition contains a new afterword of firsthand accounts that Dwyer and Flynn obtained after three years of litigation with New York City. A powerful and heart-wrenching testimonial.
