to "view" the 9-1-1 attacks as a hearing only person, and to understand exactly a guide dog works,; remarkable. I enjoyed this book very much but I felt the author repeating everything again at the end was too much. It was like he did not want to end this book so he kept going on and on. I would recommend this listen. It is worth the listen.
inspirational educational emotional
I enjoyed this book because it provides the public with both personal experience of that tragic day and the proof that disability doesn't define a person as dependent.
escape from tower was quite exciting and the details about seeing eye dogs and thier training very informative.
narrator was good.
would make an interesting movie.
I was turned of by the god stuff but respect the feelings of the author.
The trust between animal and man
The thunder storm terrified the dog but in the crisis the dog was focused.
I would defentily recommend this book. It's wonderful example of over coming what most preceive as a handicap.
I have not listened to Christopher Prince's performaces before but will look forward to have him again as a narrrator.
This story really touched me. It's not just overcoming a terrible time in history, but it shows us the spirit of the humananity that I feel is in all of us. If he had paniced, then I feel that some or all of those with him would have parrished. I especially love the comapairson between what some called handicapped and being left handed. My oldest son is a lefty, so I really related to that section of the book.
The accounting of the horrendous, explosive morning that has for ever changed our our lives and the example of two level headed individuals-a man and his guide dog.
No-back and forth to work- made me look forward to the drive.
Yes, this is a great book to listen to. A speach from Michael was also included at the end whitch made it even better.
My favorite character was Michael because he is smart, determined and a great representitive of the the blind community.
There were some heartwarming moments and some very funny stories too.
I did not learn to read until I was in my twenties. Have not stopped since. The two most important things to learn are reading & chess.
Well written. I felt like I was there. A lot valuable information about being blind and seeing eye dogs that is worth knowing.
Personally, I would have enjoyed this book more if it was less about god and more about Dog. I should have noticed it was published by a christian publisher. The trip down the stairwell of the world trade center tower was interesting, some of the information about the author's adaptation to his blindness was compelling, but this book is not really about the dog. It ends as a christian rant about his beliefs. Very dissapointing.
I like the story about 9/11 and I like the parts about his personal experience with blindness, his family, education, the dogs. I thought it was well written and the reading was good. But, I didn't like the religious parts and wouldn't have read it if I had known that would become such a big part of his story.
