Pretty interesting, unemotional writing. The guy obviously isn't a professional writer, which is rather refreshing; he gives a straightforward, non-technical account of the day from his perspective, without being too self-serving, giving many interesting anecdotes that I hadn't heard before. No pictures. No irritating (for me) drawn-out introduction about his personal history, he just starts out with him arriving at work on 9/11. Relatively short post-9/11 wrap-up, which I also found refreshing.

A very moving and compelling book. I could not put it down, and read it through until 4 in the morning. It is written in the first person, by the Battalion Commander of one of the first companies to respond to the WTC attack. He tells how he and several of his fellow firefighters worked to help clear civilians from Tower I before it collapsed, and how they survived the collapse, trapped in a stairwell. I wanted to go out and hug the firemen at our local firehouse when I finished this.

Kept my interest from cover to cover!
An intense account of what it was like
from a firefighter who experienced it.
A good read, for sure.

This was a fast read and I was unable to put it down. It was fascinating reading his account of what he experienced that day. It really gave me a different perspective on things. I was especially interested in reading his book because my husband is a firefighter and I couldn't help but imagine what I would have gone through if it had been my husband there.
