THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Incredibly evocative and compelling. The Washington Post A hugely powerful new book. Dan Snow The most moving and chilling oral history you will read. The Times Astonishing book about an astonishing, terrifying atrocity, relived in real time by those who were there. I read it in one sitting & was utterly gripped from start to finish. Piers Morgan An American academic has meticulously pieced together testimony from those who were there, using declassified documents and having conducted hundreds of new interviews. The resulting book is a harrowing picture of a day that changed history. The Sun Although many years have passed since 9/11, this book, told with such immediacy, brings so vividly back to mind the shock of that day, and why it continues to shape the tragic history that has followed. Lawrence Wright, author of The Looming Tower The Only Plane in the Sky is a stunning and important work-chilling, heartbreaking-and I cannot stop thinking about it. To hear the voices of those who survived, and those who did not, it is so moving and powerful. I learned so much and am so thankful for this book. Anderson Cooper, Anchor, CNN Of
