"Searing, poignant, and utterly compelling--"102 Minutes" does for the September 11 catastrophe what Walter Lord did for the Titanic in his masterpiece, "A Night to Remember,"" --Rick Atkinson, author of "In the Company of Soldiers" and "An Army at Dawn" At 8: 46 am on September 11, 2001, 14,000 people were inside the twin towers. Over the next 102 minutes, each would become part of a drama for the ages. Drawing on hundreds of interviews with rescuers and survivors, thousands of pages of oral histories, and countless phone, e-mail, and emergency radio transcripts," New York Times" reporters Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn tell the story of September 11 from the inside looking out, weaving together the stories of ordinary men and women into an epic account of struggle, determination, and grace. Hailed immediately upon its hardcover publication as the definitive account of that terrible morning, "102 Minutes" now contains a new Afterword that incorporates powerful firsthand material, including tapes and documents, that Dwyer and Flynn recently obtained after more than three years of litigation with the city of New York. Eight weeks on the "New York Times" bestseller list and translated into a dozen languages, "102 Minutes" is a gripping narrative that is also investigative reporting of the first rank--"in a class by itself," according to "Reader's Digest," Dwyer and Flynn reveal the decisions, both good and bad, that proved to be the difference between life and death on a day that changed America forever.
