Críticas:

"A heart-stopping, meticulous account. . . . I suspect that you, like me, will read this book in a single suspenseful sitting, even though we know the ending."--James B. Stewart, "The New York Times Book Review""The chief virtue of" 102 Minutes," Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn's unsparing, eloquent history of the struggle to survive inside the World Trade Center, is the authors' insistence that truth supplant myth. However comforting myths may be after a defeat, they're useless in assessing what went wrong and may actually be impediments to preventing future disasters."--John Farmer (former senior counsel to the 9/11 Commission), "The Washington Post Book World ""An astounding reconstruction of what happened inside the World Trade Center. . . . These are stories, after all, you have to share."--Susannah Meadows, "Newsweek""Exhaustively researched and smoothly written. . . . Dwyer and Flynn's most impressive achievement: writing in a way that confers dignity on each subject. This is one book that will stay with most readers for a very long time."-- Michelle Green, "People""For those of us haunted by the tragedy, an indispensable book."--"O Magazine""[A] harrowing, deeply reported, practically minute-by-minute and floor-by-floor portrayal. . . . Insightful, compassionate, and unrelievedly tense."--Michael Ollove, "The Baltimore Sun""A masterpiece of reporting....succinct...riveting enough to be read in a sitting...heart-wrenching...Brilliant and troubling."--Kevin Baker, "New York Times""Poignant, emotion-stirring and important...a story of how ordinary people exhibit extraordinary traits in times of peril."--Tom Walker, "Denver Post""It took the authors three years to describe what happened in 102 minutes...The book is worth the wait."--Ingrid Ahlgren, "Providence Journal""The writing - sometimes searing, sometimes factual but always appropriate - brings the human experience of disaster into focus."--Rosemary Herbert, "Boston Herald""Many of the stories are astounding; almost all are heartbreaking...They accord these men and women the honor they deserve."--Brian Palmer, "Newsday"

Reseña del editor:

At 8:46 a.m. that morning, fourteen thousand people were inside the World Trade Centre just starting their workdays, but over the next 102 minutes, each would become part of a drama for the ages. Of the millions of words written about this wrenching day, most were told from the outside looking in. "New York Times" reporters Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn draw on hundreds of interviews with rescuers and survivors, thousands of pages of oral histories, and countless phone, e-mail, and emergency radio transcripts to tell the story of September 11 from the inside looking out. Dwyer and Flynn have woven an epic and unforgettable account of the struggle, determination, and grace of the ordinary men and women who made 102 minutes count as never before.
