In An Instant is much more than the dual memoir of love and courage. It is an important, wise, and inspiring guide to coping with tragedy—and an extraordinary drama of marriage, family, war, and nation.

In January 2006, the Woodruffs seemed to have it all—a happy marriage and four beautiful children. Lee was a PR executive, and Bob had just been named co-anchor of ABC’s World News Tonight. Then, while Bob was embedded with the military in Iraq, an explosive device killed his cameraman and nearly killed him. In An Instant is the frank and compelling account of how Bob and Lees lives came together, were blown apart, and then were miraculously put together again.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The Woodruffs reveal both the strengths and weaknesses that they brought to coping with Bob’s crisis. Their frankness heightens the book’s impact, as does its wider subject: the increasing frequency in Iraq of explosion-induced head injuries like those Bob suffered. This book means to draw compassion and attention to those casualties, and it surely will.”

    New York Times

  • “An inspiring story and one that reminds us that there are countless families facing similar tragedies. The narration by both Bob and Lee enhances the listening experience and brings an added poignancy to the events they describe.”

    " This book has personal significance to me since my 24 year old son had a traumatic brain injury last November. I found so many parallels in this book to our situation, and it reinforced the hope that we have for my son's full recovery. It's a good read even if you don't know someone who has faced this incredibly difficult situation though. "
