About the Author

Recently nominated for "Book of the Year".

When the 9/11 Commission Report When it was released on July 20th, The 9/11 Commission Report immediately dominated the news. The professed mission of the members of the commission — to educate the public. — coincided with the main goal of Pocket University, and production of the entire report was immediately started.

The book has been a runaway bestseller and sales remain strong. But there will be many who find a 500 page report daunting. That is our market: the Executive Summary in audio is an easy way to get the essence of the report, without having to read the book. The Commission has been telling all who will listen that the report and its recommendations could save American lives. It is in that spirit that we produced the Commission's Report on audio. Our marketing efforts are now focused on getting it to the public, and now, it is available.

From AudioFile

Narrators typically interpret, dramatize, and enliven text. But that approach won't work for the audiobook of the 9/11 COMMISSION REPORT. The task here is to bring life to the words without coloring the message of this carefully balanced analysis. Remarkably, the narrators--a who's who of audio professionals--pull it off, as evidenced by Barbara Rosenblat's voicing of the harrowing air controller and pilot transcripts, Ralph Cosham's perspective on fundamentalist Islam (the British accent helps), Dan Cashman's raspy explanation as to why it's easier to create terror than to stop it, and Scott Brick's re-creation of the final attack plan. Pocket University did an impressive job conveying this provocative and distressing material, and the result is a document that, like history itself, reflects hope and despair.

I downloaded this without looking at the sample (well - it was 99c) but this is a poor transfer with a lot of formatting errors and before the end of the first chapter I had deleted it and downloaded the New York Times version which is much better...

The formatting of this document is UNREADABLE. A much better alternative is to simply download the pdf (freely available on the web) and transfer it to your Kindle. I don't understand how they get away with charging for a free report anyway.

Format: Paperback
The 9/11 Commission report has been vilified as "partisan," as a "cover-up" (cf. the supposed cover-up of the JFK assassination by the Warren Commission), etc.; but whatever one's perspective, one should definitely simply READ the report itself (and pay attention to information in the FOOTNOTES; sometimes "minority" members of the Commission were only able to get material included in the report by having it relegated to seemingly obscure footnotes).

They note early on, "No one at the FAA or the airlines that day had ever dealt with multiple hijackings. Such a plot had not been carried out anywhere in the world in more than 30 years, and never in the United States. As news of the hijackings filtered through the FAA and the airlines, it does not seem to have occurred to their leadership that they needed to alert other aircraft in the air that they too might be at risk." (Pg. 10)

About Flight 93, they wrote, "The hijackers remained at the controls but must have judged that the passengers were only seconds from overcoming them... Jarrah's objective was to crash his airliner into symbols of the American Republic, the Capitol or the White House. He was defeated by the alerted, unarmed passengers of United 93." (Pg. 14)

They observed, "Congress had a distinct tendency to push questions of emerging national security threats off its own plate, leaving them for others to consider. Congress asked outside commissions to do the work that arguably was at the heart of its own oversight responsibilities... these commissions made scores of recommendations to address terrorism and homeland security but drew little attention from Congress. Most of theIR impact came after 9/11." (Pg.
