Excellent read.

Heart-wrenching! I relived those days with each reporter's reflections. Never forget the horrid of that day. God help us! It could happen again.

Reading this book brought back emotions from the time around 9-11. But it was an important read for me to see how various people responded and what was said/done.

It can teach budding journalists a lot about dealing with emergencies that arise.

Important history should be well documented. This is great documentation of an extreme moment in U. S. history. it also is easy to read.

This chronicle of those who chronicled the minute by minute horror of September 11, 2001 gives the reader a contemporaneous view of the day and, in their own words, of how reporters report. It starts with the recollection of WPIX-TV New York Helicopter Cameraman Chet Wilson describing his routine view of the Twin Towers in the sunrise and ends with a bone-weary Dan Rather, Anchor, CBS News returning home at 5:15 the next morning.
In between, we see the human side of those trying to tell a stricken world what has happened, what is happening, and what will happen. They are like those blind people with the elephant - all each can do is report on the little piece of the beast in front of him.
The book is a cooperative humanitarian compilation, royalties are being donated to benefit the families of the victims of the September 11 terrorists attacks, including the families of the six broadcast engineers who died that day atop the World Trade Center, who are touchingly eulogized in the book's Epilogue.Here is how the editors explain the effort: "We took the individual accounts of what journalists experienced, learned, and felt that day and wove them into a narrative. The major events are discussed in the order in which they occurred." The reader who would like to follow each contributor through his/her day may do so by using the Index of Contributors in the back of the book. Also in the back of the book are helpful maps of the besieged areas, (which I wish I would have known while I was reading the book - instead of stumbling upon them afterward) and picture bio/blurbs of the contributors. Conspicuously absent here are Bryant Gumble, Katie Couric, Matt Lauer, Diane Sawyer, and Charlie Gibson. Jane Clayson participated, as did all the major network news anchors.
Byron Pitts, CBS News Correspondent, New York, summarized The Day: "On September 11 in Lower Manhattan, everyone was just a human being. People weren't black; they weren't white; they weren't cops; they weren't firefighters; they were just human beings. I don't remember anyone yelling at anyone, anyone giving directions to do anything. I will remember September 11 as much for what went right as for what went wrong: the bravery of the firefighters, how incredibly decent people were. I was raised to believe that God is good. I believed it on September 10. I believed it on September 11. The evil that happened there - that was man-made. But the strength and the decency, the courage people showed, for me, that's what God and faith are all about. And I was reminded that tomorrow isn't promised."

Features reporters accounts of the events of 9/11. At first very insightful as they share their first-hand experiences in virtual real time. Eventually it is just a litany of disaster reporting. The insights to the Pentagon attack are interesting. The reports of the plane in Pennsylvania are surreal. Includes some B/W photos. Mentions rumors.

Concludes with maps of attack areas and profiles of each writer.

You won't find any major revelations in this book, and much of what is in here is covered in other sources (many several times over), but that still doesn't deter from the fact that this is basically a decent, non-judgemental oral history about the events of September 11. Everyone gets their say, from the lowly producers at the foot of the trade center all the way up to the network anchors on their national news sets. You end up with a certain appreciation for the effort it took for these people to not only get the story out, but to try to get it out in the middle of absolute chaos. You may not like the media or trust them, but you can't help but marvel that -- on that one day, at least -- everyone seemed to pull together and leave the personal opinions aside, just to make sure the tragedy unfolding before our eyes was properly documented for the world to see. Their stories may not be as compelling as the firefighters or rescue workers, but they are compelling nevertheless.
How many times have you perhaps thought, and also heard that the press are really bad folks? The press has an agenda? The press is biased? Well, this great book reminds us all how truly wonderful the men and women of broadcast journalism covered the horrible events of September 11th. I will never forget how I saw Tom Brokaw, lower his head at one point and choke up. After a second or two he acknowledged to us all that he had an emotional moment. At one point, Peter Jennings, who had just received word that his kids were safe, looked at the camera and told the audience that we all should call our children. I dearly loved reading of the human sides of these men and women. Also, it was astonishing to see how radio and TV covered the story not knowing from moment to moment where the story was going. Local New York area radio and TV are covered as well as that of national TV networks.I really don't want to give anything more away. Buy this book and read it. This will be one that you will want to include in your home library for years to come. You won't want to be selling this one to a used book store or in a garage sale. It's a keeper.
