Very good book. I would recommend to anybody interested about the tragedy of september 11, 2001. The money raised from the sale of this book goes to the September 11 Fund. Help the families of New York...

An American Tragedy 9.11.01

This book grabs you. I had watched the events take place on television at work, with my coworkers, one could look out the window and see the smoke in the distance. Being a New Yorker everyone I know has either lost someone or knows someone who did.I had seen the book in a store before Christmas, but it was too close to 9/11 to buy it. Since that time it has been sold out everywhere. If you want to see hell on earth in book form this is it. But more importantly, buy it and keep it so that we never forget 9/11/2001 or let it happen again.


As I leafed through the pages of this keepsake book, goosebumps appeared on my skin as well as tears. It brings back the horific day in clear view.I'm ordering three more for my childrens hope chests.


With so many books being published on the events of September 11, it is difficult to know which books are worth the money and which ones are not. This book is definitely one that is worth the price tag. New York Magazine has done an excellent job of portraying this devastating time and has put together a well-documented account of the events. The photography is absolutely incredible and surreal; it reveals the shock, fear, panic, grief and feeling of impossibility the images of this horrific day evoke. Just as the boming of Pearl Harbour carries horrific memories, so will the events of September 11th, and these attrocities will forever go down in the pages of history. This book, along with one other, "One Nation" by Life Magazine are both two of the better ones on bookshelves today and would make memorable keepsakes for many years to come. Both are highly recommended and most deserving of a five-star rating.

Of all the Books this will be the Collector

There are a lot of Books out right now concerning September 11 but this will be the American collector as more than a History book, it will be the Icon of books for this date. This is an American Book of our account, not the Taliban's or Osama DUMB Laden. I belive more than one hundred years from now people will view this book in America and be happy that we responded with a Touch Down strike of profound proportions against these naive perpetrators. Get a copy and keep it for your childrens children. I want to highly recommend a book that predicted this terrorism and will help us stop the terrorism, Karl Mark Maddox has a super great book called SB 1 or God
