"No one is more qualified to write the definitive book about the tragedy of 9/11 than John Farmer. Fortunately, he has done so. Even more fortunately the language is clear, alive and instructive for anyone who wants to make certain this never happens again." - Bob Kerrey, Former US Senator and Member of the 9/11 Commission
"...he transcends easy generalizations to expose the fault lines in contemporary governance and point the way to fundamental reform." - Publishers Weekly
"This book sheds new light on the events surrounding 9/11 and the role of government in handling crises and also serves as a rallying cry for change. Essential." - Library Journal
"An important systematic brief on how an elaborately constructed national-defense system was penetrated, and why lessons of that day for disaster response remain dimly understood." - Kirkus Reviews
