This year marks the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, an occasion that is sure to be observed around the world. But among the memorials, political speeches, and news editorials, the most pressing consideration - and often the most overlooked - is the lives and well-being of the 9/11 first responders, their families, and the victims' families over the past decade. Dennis Smith, a former firefighter and the author of the bestselling Report from Ground Zero, addresses this important topic in a series of interviews with the heroes and families of those most affected by the tragedy either through feats of bravery in the rescue efforts or heroic bearing up in the face of unimaginable loss. Smith provides an intimate look at a terrible moment in history and its challenging and difficult aftermath, allowing these survivors to share their stories of loss, endurance, and resilience in their own words. A Decade of Hope is an honest and vitally important look at a decade in the lives of those for whom a national tragedy was a devastatingly personal ordeal.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Pat | 6/2/2013

    " This book was good, but too long. The author should have stopped after the first ten stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kathi | 5/22/2013

    " A good book to read following the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Most of the stories give you hope, at the way so many have put their lives back together after the loss of a loved one on that dreadful day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Lindsay | 10/2/2012

    " This was a great book, and it really should get 5 stars from me, but there was a point where many of the stories started to feel similar and I did a lot of skimming "

    " If you think your life is bad, you have no idea! These are the true survivors of 9/11 -- the families of those who died and how they have endured during the last ten years. "
