USA Today Functions both as a snappy police procedural and-more significantly-as a searing indictment of legal neglect. Leovy’s powerful testimony demands respectful attention. The Boston Globe Ghettoside is fantastic. The author has gone above and beyond in presenting an honest unflinching look at the grim subject matter. I read the book within 24 hours of starting it and shed tears at several point in the harrowing narrative.

Enjoyed specific quotes from this book and it reminds you what a great Country we live in. I suggest this book for remembering those who died on Sept. 11, 2001.

I'm not sure how it happened, but somehow this book didn't find its way onto my reading list until recently. If, like me, you somehow missed this one, don't wait another day to read this book. AMERICA OUT OF THE ASHES by Jeff O'Leary is a book you don't want to miss.

The book begins by asking the question, "where was God on September 11, 2001" then it goes about the business of telling exactly where God was on the fateful day. Many of the miracles of that day are chronicled here. The subtitle tells us these are stories of heroism and courage, but it is far more than that.

Indeed, many individual acts of heroism are told here. These are acts performed by people never before heard of. They were everyday people who did not set out to be heroes, but they found themselves in circumstances which warranted drastic measures.

This book is, at times, very difficult to read. Not so because of any fault of the writers. The sentence structure is fine and the prose hold no difficulty. This is difficult to read because it is very hard to focus with tears welled up in your eyes. At times, this book will tug at your very soul.

Add this book to your shelf. Read it with your children, and often. Remind them that heroes are not sports figures or Hollywood actors, but that heroes are everyday people who had the courage and the discipline to make impossible decisions and ultimate sacrifices.

This was a very touching book, hitting the most emotional parts of the heart. A must-read for all who enjoy reading about our history. A very inspiring story that says it all: God wasn't gone, He was with them on the planes.

Originally I purchased this book, as my brother's firehouse is in the book "Company of Heroes" pgs 59-66. My brother's name is also mentioned in the book. John Santore, FDNY, he was one of the firefighters who died on Sept. 11, 2001.
After reading the book, I felt it was well written and very touching to he heart.
Thank you to the publisher for printing such inspirational stories.
