    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Story

    I held off getting this book for some time as I thought I would tire of a long story about sea survival. so glad I finally got it. Superbly written. Hard to put down. It is the story of a remarkable man. The sea survival is a large part of it but not all. It is the story of his life. A great book!

    Included here is a selection of recordings of Federal Aviation Administration, Defense Department, and American Airlines communications from September 11, 2001. You will hear air traffic controllers, military aviation officers, airline and fighter jet pilots, as well as two of the hijackers, during two hours of that historic morning.

    Story

    Sobering, intense, terrifying. VERY hard to listen to, but something that puts a human face on the events of 9/11 in a way that books, newspapers, magazines, movies or television cannot.

    It added to my appreciation for the heroes and martyrs of that day. No matter how uncomfortable you feel while listening to this, it is but a drop in the ocean compared to how the participants and their families must feel.

    Really puts you in the middle of the event.
