Wise after the event,
This review is from: The Eleventh Day (Hardcover)
While I admire the authors' industry and accept that undoubtedly mistakes were made, too much of the information in the book is prefaced by "it was reported that", "it is suggested that", "might" and "may", or describes details which were only discovered after the event or includes statements by a range of people people who wish to show how farsighted they were.. Unlike the authorities, the authors had the picture on the front of the jigsaw box while in real time there were only bits and pieces of the jigsaw which contained non specific references to attacks on the USA and the possible use of aircraft. There is little recognition of the reality that if governments reacted to every bit of intelligence they received, measures would be introduced which would soon be derided if nothing happened or countries would be brought or a standstill. To stop further terrorists attacks perhaps governments should employ authors of books like this who appear to know all the answers, in hindsight of course.

LOTS has been said about this. it was a part of the WTC complex. it was damaged. it fell. or was there a boogyman with hidden explosives lurking in the shadows somewhere?

Book fan says:
WTC7 collapsed because it burned for ages without anyone fighting the fires and was badly damaged when the two main towers collapsed next to it.
