Now a major motion picture starring Jake Gyllenhaal: the bestselling memoir of the twenty-seven-year-old Boston Marathon bombing survivor

When Jeff Bauman woke up on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 in the Boston Medical Center, groggy from a series of lifesaving surgeries and missing his legs, the first thing he did was try to speak. When he realized he couldn’t, he asked for a pad and paper and wrote down seven words: “Saw the guy. Looked right at me,” setting off one of the biggest manhunts in the country’s history.

Just thirty hours before, Jeff had been at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon cheering on his girlfriend, Erin, when the first bomb went off at his feet. As he was rushed to the hospital, he realized he was severely injured and that he might die, but he didn’t know that a photograph of him in a wheelchair was circulating throughout the world, making him the human face of the Boston Marathon bombing victims—or that what he had seen would give the Boston police their most important breakthrough.

In Stronger, Jeff describes the chaos and terror of the bombing itself and the ongoing FBI investigation in which he was a key witness. He takes us inside his grueling rehabilitation and discusses his attempt to reconcile the world’s admiration with his own guilt and frustration.

Brave, compassionate, and emotionally compelling, Jeff Bauman’s story is not just his but ours as well.

  • STRONGER is not merely a triumph-over-adversity story, but a love story....the book exudes a sense of transparency and honesty. Boston Globe
  • “Gritty details of how his life changed after the bombing intermingle with inspiring moments of throwing the first pitch at a Red Sox game or waving the flag before a Bruins hockey game. Although he lost his legs and his life is permanently changed, Bauman refuses to let those circumstances hold him back. A moving demonstration of how strength of mind and character helped one man stand tall despite the loss of his legs.”

A famous photograph taken at the scene, and his vital role in identifying the bomber from his intensive care hospital bed, made him the face of the tragedy, but it is his determination, humor and positive attitude that has inspired millions.
