Fascinating insider's story of the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11. Picciotto is a Chief with the Fire Dept. sent to Ground Zero. As he is clearing the 2nd Tower with a group of other firefighters, the Tower collapses and traps him, his crew, some other firefighters, and one civilian in a stairwell. They are buried there for hours, trying to make contact with the outside, and assessing how many are alive with them in the debris-filled stairwell above and below them. After hours the dust settles and Picciotto sees daylight far above him. He and a few others venture to climb out of the hole and get the others rescued. But all they see is acres and acres of smoke, fire, debris, and dust. The book was fast-moving and tense, and a quick read. Two things I wish had been included in the book: 1) a diagram of the debris field and their location; and 2) an update on how he and the others recovered from the injuries they sustained. Highly recommend this book.

Like most people I was transfixed and horrified as tv blared the horrors of 9-11. The bravery of NYC’s firefighters is legendary on any given day, any given fire emergency. That the men and one woman trapped in the stairwell in the dark, surrounded by debris, ash and fumes didn’t panic when all seemed lost. It is unimaginable the terrors they must have faced waiting for rescue, if that was even a remote possibility. Chief Pitch never wavered from his training, from the belief that no man or woman be left behind at his own peril. His steadfastness kept those he was trapped with calm and motivated to stay alive, that he would somehow lead them out while facing his own mortality. An incredible story of bravery.

This is the true account of Fire Chief Richard Picciotto, a small group of firemen and one civilian after the collapse of towers of the World Trade Center. He tells in great detail what actions he took on that fateful day, and where he was, how he felt, what he thought about after being trapped in the rubble after the collapse of the buildings.

This is a very stirring book about a man who never gave up, and due to his diligence saved the lives of a civilian and other firemen. This man is in every sense a true hero.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a heartwarming true story about 9/11.

the authour writes in vivid detail of his personal experience on 9/11. In fact, so vivid that you can actually smell the acrid smoke, hear the sounds of the towers as they collapsed& feel,like the author, the ash & rubble seep into your very pores. a heart-breaking, wrenching, gut check check of a read that will have you up all night, even though the outcome is, presumably known. A chilling recounting of the facts & emotions of that dat day and an inside [email protected] the soul of a firefighter that ultimately leaves you proud to be an American.

I was very disappointed with the book ending as it stopped abruptly with main character out of hospital and enroute to his fire station. Left me wanting more. I couldn’t believe book was over! Would like to have known how many fire fighters were lost in his fire house and also outcome of his eye damage. In addition, would have been nice to hear of outcome of those entombed with him.

This is a gripping book. Once I started it, I could not stop reading until I finished of. Of course I knew the story, but not its details. The author tells a good story. It is fascinating and well worth the read.

This book out more reality into 9/11 than anything else I have read. Unless we know a civil servant we rarely put a lot of thought into what they do everyday but this book will open your eyes and your hearts. Read it and pass it on. Well written Richie and I'm so glad you made it out.
Interesting to read from the Chief's perspective because he was THERE. What a horrible experience for anyone to go through
and he was a trained professional. Thanks for writing this book.
