I remember watching the 2nd plane flying into the WTC in real-time while starting my day with a work-out at 0600 hrs on the West Coast. I still have the same mixed feelings now, as I did then, learning I lost 343 brothers from FDNY. After going thru USAR training for 6 years, I was put into a desk job at EMS as part of my promotional package. My counter-parts went in my place. I would have loved to have helped, if that were possible, but I was probably spared from lingering health issues. Keep FDNY in your prayers for health, benefits, and support. They DESERVE every bit of it, and more. This book, for me, is in THEIR MEMORY. NEVER FORGET!!!!!!! Ke Akua Ho'omaika'i Oe, my brothers.

In the face of appalling violence and national outrage these ordinary people became extraordinary, and Joe McNally was there to capture them, one shot at a time. This book is a triumph over evil, heartbreaking, and should be required reading by every American, especially those in Washington, DC who are supposed to be keeping us safe. Thanks for this remarkable testament, Joe.

I went to New York City, Grand Central Station, where the original exhibit was held. Therefore I see more in the book than perhaps someone who did not see the exhibit. The photos at the exhibit were "LIFESIZE". It was though you were standing in front of the 9/11 heros and you could almost "HEAR" their written comments. The book brings back those memories. I have tried to find out where the original photos are being displayed, if they are being displayed at all. The book is the next best thing to seeing the exhibit.

For those who admire photography with meaning, this is a must for you. These are more than just images on paper. They are real people whose lives are captured by one of the most renowned photographers of our era.

No matter how many years after 9/11, I always get emotionally when hearing/seeing/reading about 9/11.
And this book certainly made me emotional. 'Simple' pictures, but o so great in giving us a feeling what of alle these people have been going through.
Joe McNally did a great job!

When I first went through this book, I was moved by the deep emotion that could be seen in the calm faces of the firefighters, police, and all those who helped on that day or in the days after, as well as those who had managed to escape the destruction. Deep sorrow showed on many faces despite their calm demeanor, and cold anger abiding just under the surface on others who had lost good friends. As I read this book and looked at the portraits, especially of the firefighters and police, I was reminded of the photos of soldiers and sailors who have just come through battles, or are catching their breath between engagements. I understood why people said that on day and the days that followed, those people were on the front line of our war.

There were one or two people whose presence I simply didn't understand, beyond perhaps, just perhaps they were in the book because they simply wanted to help or to encourage or comfort others, somehow.

There was one smiling face, an office worker, and when I read the story of how she was rescued and how she and her rescuers survived the tower collapse, I could understand why she smiled.
