About the book:

The story of the people who responded to the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01. Within days, Langewiesche quickly secured unique, unrestricted, around-the-clock access to the site, the rescue workers & laborers there, & the meetings of city officials, engineers, construction companies, & consultants. He became the only writer to be ''embedded'' in the World Trade Center -- to live virtually night & day among the unbuilding crew as they brought order to an instance of chaos unprecedented on American soil. Firefighters, police officers, widows, bureaucrats, & profiteers attempted to claim the work -- & the tragedy -- as their own, the emotional & political implications loomed large as well.
