Having had unparalleled access to the Chilean mine disaster, award-winning journalist Jonathan Franklin takes readers to the heart of a remarkable story of human endurance, survival, and historic heroism.

33 Men is the groundbreaking, authoritative account of the Chilean mine disaster, one of the longest human entrapments in history. Rushing to the scene when the miners were discovered, Franklin obtained a coveted “Rescue Team” pass and reported directly from the front lines of the rescue operation, beyond police controls, for six weeks.

Based on more than 110 intimate interviews with the miners, their families, and the rescue team, Franklin’s narrative captures the remarkable story of these men and women, in details shocking, beautiful, comedic, and heroic. Gripping and raw with never-before-revealed details, 33 Men is a true story that reads like a thriller.

    " It's really amazing what these guys went through. This book tells the story of their daily struggles. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judie | 5/3/2011

    " I think because there was so much on TV about these men I did not learn anything new. Although they were amazing men.
    A book of their life after they got out of the mine would be interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rose | 5/2/2011

    " What a great read! I avoid the news, so I didn't know any details about this before reading the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 4/25/2011

    " Really great story that happened not too long ago. So interesting to read what happened inside the mine all those days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaun | 3/26/2011

    " This is the behind the scenes story of the 33 trapped miners in Chile from 2010. It was an amazing story of rescuing these miners who were trapped over 2000 feet underground and they all made it out safe and alive. An incredible story of heroism. It was a fast and fascinating read for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 3/23/2011

    " This was a very neutral approach to this drama, with an inside view of this harrowing expereince and some great examples of wonderful human nature. I was glad I knew how it ended and fascinated by the politics and drama that went on behind the scene. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi | 3/20/2011

    " This was a book that Greg got for one of his online classes. I decided to read it since I never heard anything about this. Due to my previous job of death I rarely watched the news and still dont today. This was an incredible story about 33 men who survived being trapped in a mine for 68 days. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tasha | 3/19/2011

    " Very interesting. Sadly I was living under a rock when this happened (also known as being pregnant and having a toddler) and knew little to nothing of this as it was happening so most of what I read was completely new to me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 3/18/2011

    " Not enough personal story. Simply a timeline of the rescue for the most part.
    I thought I wouldn't finish. Last night I couldn't sleep, picked this up and finished it.
    "

    " This book was much better than I thought it would be! "
