Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The citizens of this country, as well as our friends around the world, truly do stand united.

Heroism has been redefined, our core values have resurfaced and a new sense of local and national community has emerged.

You won't find most American heroes walking through the pages of history books or atop huge monuments. Their names don't generally make the headlines or the 6 o'clock news. A true hero is simply someone who makes a difference—large or small—in the lives of others.

On September 11, 2001 our nation suffered the tragic loss of thousands of lives in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Immediately, policemen, firefighters and other emergency workers in New York and Washington, DC along with thousands of other Americans responded with an outpouring of courage, selfless service and faith.

The overwhelming and passionate stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul of America honor and celebrate the men, women and children who stepped forward in this great time of need and, through their actions, exemplified the true nature of the American Spirit!

Celebrate The Soul of America with your loved ones ... with hope and determination—now and for the future!

Truly remarkable!! The horrible events of September 11, 2001 will never be forgotten, but the way Americans, as well as most of the world , reacted to these events will need to be told over and over again. This book shows you the best of America through personal stories of rescue workers, survivors, and victims families, as well as reactions from people around the world. It is clear from these stories that out of America's worst tragedy emerged the greatest nation in the world. This book should be required reading. "Wir alle sind Amerikaner"!

When I was shopping in Sam's with my mother and nephew and fiance I was looking for a dvd. I found nothing I really wanted to buy. Seemed to me I can no longer really buy a good flick these days. So there I was walking the aisle getting bored out of my mind when I stumbled on this book. At first I was a bit angered that the Chicken book series would sink so low to print a book about the September 11, attacks to make a quick buck. I started to read just to see what they printed and I came across the poem "I AM THE AMERICAN FLAG", by: Howard Schnauber on page: 206. There I was reading and feeling some pride about to burst through me and I wanted to cry. The partiot in me shed some tear. My fiance asked me what I was reading that was making me cry. I showed him. In turn he asked me why not buy it. I did. It'll be worth it. Some of the stories are beautiful and some will make you grateful we live in the greatest country in the world. But this patriot who believes in God and Jesus is proud to say that I am proud to be an American living in the Republic of United States of America.

I picked a great one as the first "Chicken Soup" book to read from start to finish. I read the majority of this uplifting book as a metro train commuter to and from my duty station, the Pentagon. Having known three of the victims of the September 11, 2001 attack on the Pentagon, I had personal reasons to read this book. I found the many short, direct, and moving stories from common people, and their sharing of their deepest emotions, very comforting. I consider this book to be another step in my continuing personal program of coping and healing. I believe many others would also find reading it a great spiritual and emotional experience.
The only flaw with this outstanding book is that it is almost exclusively devoted to or focused on the World Trade Center heroes, victims, survivors, and volunteers. The book has very few stories about what happened at the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania. I commend the authors for their tremendous job in compiling these great stories from the thousands received and for publishing such an important book in such a short time to help so many. Tragedy and devastation were equally shared by friends, family, and acquaintances in New York, the Pentagon, and Pennsylvania. I believe this book should have included a few more Pentagon and Pennsylvania specific stories since the book's cover proclaims, "Stories to Heal the Heart of Our Nation."

Format: Paperback
Not that it is a bad book, but it is very different than all of the other (12) Chicken Soup books that I own. I was surprised, I guess. There aren't many up-lifting stories. It's more of a documentary type book. Telling people's experiences on 9-11. I usually finish my Chicken Soup books in a very short period of time. This one,.. I could only really read 1 story a night. It was too depressing.

BRAVO TO THE AUTHORS OF CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL OF AMERICA!!!!!
I just purchased this book yesterday, started reading it last night and cried after the first three stories. What a touching and heart breaking way to immortilize those that were lost. My heart bled and I shed tears once again for those that I did not know and for those that are fighting for our country. As I sat and watched the memorial service today, 6 months after the initial attack I cried again. This is just what we need to heal the wounds and the heart. I just want to say thank you to all of the firefighters, police officers and everyone that helps protect us every day. You honestly are not forgotten. GOD BLESS THE U.S.A.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Format: Paperback
A lot of American heroes such as fire fighters aren't really recognized by anyone because no one really takes the time to notice them. This book makes you really realize how much some people really do for our country. This book helps you realize that. Fire fighters and other people in general help out us. They should feel proud and good about themselves because they are in this awesomely known book. This book talks about the incident that happened on the September 11th 2001 and how so many people lost their loved ones. Millions of people answered the call, rallying together with an outpouring of courage. It talks about how people came together to help with the horrible incident that happened.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone no matter what age because it's about our country working together when something tragic happened to our country.
