The dramatic and moving account of the struggle for life inside the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, when every minute counted, from the perspective of those who survived.
102 Minutes is a taut blend of narrative and investigative journalism that takes readers inside the Twin Towers on the morning of September 11. Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn’s painstaking reconstruction reveals that poor design and emergency preparedness trapped hundreds of people who might otherwise have survived. The authors also tell vivid and poignant stories about individuals struggling to stay alive, or to say goodbye. A moving, enraging and cautionary book, 102 Minutesreminds us how quickly events—even ones as exhaustively covered as 9/11—become mythologized and misunderstood.
