REVISED EDITION: Gaining a firm grasp on the highly complex, famously fraught aftermath of Hurricane Katrina can seem as tenuous as its victims’ shaky grasp on survival. Mayor C. Ray Nagin was there during the city of New Orleans' darkest hours. Charged with assessing the forces that swirled around him, the city’s leader strove to maintain formidable calm in the face of the biggest natural and man-made disaster in America’s history. That is, until he simply could not. Nagin’s first-hand account, Katrina’s Secrets: Storms after the Storm lays out the days leading up to and immediately following the storm. At once stirringly elegiac and disarmingly candid, this spellbinding reckoning delivers exacting detail, while boldly exposing secrets that, until now, have been glossed over or spun out. Nagin’s team confronted thousands of calls pleading for rescue; politicos more keen to pose for photos than to pose solutions; broken promises from FEMA; the violent Superdome; and the controversial acts of some police. When he at last broke down in a radio interview, the world cried with him. Clear and compassionate, the author illuminates the magnitude of the efforts undertaken in response to the lives that hung in the balance and the actions taken to restore New Orleans to its rightful luster. Katrina’s Secrets also provides crucial context of race and class to shed new and unnerving light on how the events played out. Throughout the searing narrative, Nagin’s deep love of his native city shines through like a beacon in the treacherous, storm-tossed night. Any reader dumbfounded by the fallout of Katrina will cling to every graceful, gutsy page of this heartbreaking ode to a place like no other, and its breathtaking comeback. Katrina’s Secrets is certain to give ample pause for thought—and cause to act.

The book was basically in the condition I expected. Shipping took a little longer than expected but well within the expectations represented by Amazon. The book is being referenced for research on the paranoia of the New Orleans Mayor. it is not a particularly good read as it lays out lots of questionable conclusions for the period covered.

Mayor Ray:

Your book is not a good read. You claim to have emergency management experience but you have demonstrated through the written word that you didn't learn a thing. The outcome may have been different had you let the emergency managers do thier jobs.

I'm guessing that you decided against proofreading based on the number of errors. I found them annoying.

The inference was made that everyone outside of the mayor's officer is racist. Ray did you promote that? You refer to a character in the story as a real brother. Sorry but what respect I had for the author has tanked.

All summed, the book is terrible and the message is even worse.

Although Nagin is in prison serving time, the book was well written and gave his squalid account of pre and post-KATRINA. Although Nagin is a crooked Democrat ( like most big city liberal mayors in progressive shooting-galleries ) it was Nagin's ninth hour speech, covered by all networks where he stressed, "GET OUT. GET OUT NOW. This storm is coming. Just get the hell out of New Orleans. Evacuate now. I'm not going to tell you again." Those words saved the lives of probably 5-10,000 New Orleanians and for that alone, we should thank Nagin.

Did he have an editor? Or maybe even a 5th grader that could have helped proofread for him? A very unfortunate excuse of a book..
