This outstanding book by Joe McNally was an incredible look at just some of the people involved in all of different aspects of 9/11. The photos were taken voluntarily with a one-of -a -kind camera that has the lens of a U-2 spy plane. It created photographs that were 8 feet tall and 12 feet long.

I have a problem to this day with how close I came to not being around for my sons. They're so young, two and one. They don't yet realize how much I love them.

meh. I struggled through this, just cause I read it for the sake of reading it.I got this book from a box sale a few years ago and it sat on a shelf collecting dust. I finally just picked it up and read it.I've decided to give this book to my library cause I have no need for it in my own life.September 11th was a terrible day and I sat like millions of others, watching the TV. I wasn't there. I was in a whole other counrty. I didn't feel the pain that the people in this book did. I just, went on...
I LOVED the photos, and loved that Joe McNally did this book. Gives you some truly up close stories from many perspectives on 9/11.

Rudolph Giulani did not write this book, he did the foreword. Tis needs to be fixed. This was the hard work of Joe McNally & his crew. A must-see book.
