    1. This is the first book I ever read about September 11th and, quite possibly, my last simply because the authors did such and outstanding job with the interviews that I have no need to pick up another.Never Forget is not a very long book at all and I can usually get through a book this size in about two to three days However, the sheer horror and devastation described by many of those interviewed brought me such grief that I was forced to put it down several times, making it the most difficult bo [...]

    2. I will never forget about 20 of us huddled in Amid s cubicle at Qwest because he was the only one who had streaming at that time.

    3. I read this book a few years ago and the stories brought me to tears Stories by people who experienced this horrible event first hand It is absolutely worth a read

    4. Very tough book to get through, very eye opening, brutal to read and at the same time uplifting Seeing complete strangers helping others, watching people lay their lives on the line I was particularly moved by the volunteers who helped with the clean up of Ground Zero , people finding a kind of peace and sacredness in such a horrible place I actually got a few books on 9 11 but couldn t read them Maybe someday, but three of this kind of story back to back would be too much to take at once.

    5. Although many people worldwide have suffered from various terrorist attacks, the attacks of September 11, 2001 are of particular interest because they were a common experience that affected many people in New York City It didn t matter whom one was, what one was doing, or how well off For some, the difference between life and death amounted to a minute, a few footsteps, slowing down to help, or even to make the choice to not help someone else A gripping book.

    6. This book offers the perspectives and experiences from a wide range of people personally impacted by Sept 11th I was really interested in the reflections from the people at the Pentagon, since that seems to get overlooked This is not an easy read, a lot of it is stomach churning and disturbing But it s an important read Some of the stories are linked, which made them that much interesting But others were similar and I found myself losing interest at times.

    7. Clearly one of the darkest days in American history This book tells the tales of the survivors of that tragic day From first responders, to families of the fallen, and eye witnesses, this book is extremely moving After a few of these stories, my faith in humanity was restored There are good people out there and there are heros.

    8. The stories tend to error to the gory side and almost sensationalize the tough emotions and details of the event It is a really great cross section of interview subjects though, and represents a complete picture of the story.
