    " Kind of a hard look at the "pile" of the WTC and the personalities that worked together or not to clear away the wreckage. "

    " so, this book was a bit boring in the beginning - describing in minute detail, the unbuilding of the world trade center. eventually, emotion was shown, and 'characters' were known. i guess i just didn't feel like reading about the world trade center... "

    " The depth of inside reporting and the details of deconstruction at the site of the towers were gripping. "

    " I originally read this book when it came out as a 3-part series in the Atlantic. Enthralling. We gave copies of this book to our parents and siblings for Christmas that year. "
