In The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7, David Ray Griffin provides a definitive study of what happens when political concerns are permitted to override science and the scientific method. With intellectual finesse and rigor worthy of a scientist, Griffin demolishes any claim that NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology) has to scientific credibility in its study of the collapse of WTC 7. This book is a must read for scientists, architects, engineers and all who are concerned with the restoration of science to its "rightful place" in our democracy. --John D. Wyndham (Ph.D., Physics, Cambridge University), former Research Fellow at the California Institute of Technology<br \><br \>David Ray Griffin has written a powerful book that asks disturbing questions and seeks to debunk myths about September 11. It is provocative, well-researched, and beyond convincing. --Rosie O Donnell<br \><br \>If you consider it important that the US government's science agencies provide truthful information to the public, this book by David Ray Griffin is a must read. It shows beyond a shadow of doubt that NIST's report on the 'collapse' of WTC 7 did not tell us the truth. --Dwain Deets, former Director for Research Engineering at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center<br \><br \>David Ray Griffin has provided a comprehensive dismantling of NIST's theory about WTC 7, according to which it suffered global collapse because of ordinary building fires. Besides showing that NIST committed massive scientific fraud, Griffin also points out that NIST was able to complete its theory only by affirming a miracle: a steel-framed high-rise building coming down in free fall even though explosives had not been used to remove its columns. --Richard Gage, member of American Institute of Architects; founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth<br \><br \>Based on my engineering knowledge and experience, I fully agree with Dr. Griffin's conclusion that NIST's report on the collapse of WTC 7 is pseudo-science, containing claims that are misleading and even outright false. Numerous contradictions exposed by outside experts during the public review process were completely ignored, because they did not fit NIST's contrived explanation. --Jack Keller, Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers; member of the National Academy of Engineering<br \><br \>Once again, David Ray Griffin has taken on a complicated piece of the 9/11 story and made it understandable. Whether you are a novice about 9/11 or have been following the inconsistencies of the government's story closely, you will find Griffin's new book enlightening. --Lorie Van Auken, widow of Kenneth Van Auken, who was killed at WTC 1 on 9/11, and member of the Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Commission
In 2004, over 15,000 scientists charged that the Bush administration had engaged in persistent 'distortion of scientific knowledge for partisan political ends.' In this book, David Ray Griffin shows that NIST's report on the destruction of WTC 7 is plagued throughout with various forms of scientific fraud, all of which point to a deliberate effort to avoid the extensive evidence that WTC 7 was brought down by controlled demolition. --Earl Staelin, attorney in Denver, Colorado
Professor Griffin's meticulous dissection of NIST's WTC 7 report shows just why its theory of fire-induced progressive collapse is wholly inadequate and essentially fraudulent, and why the actual demise of this huge building could have been brought about only by intentional demolition, which could have been set up and carried out only by domestic forces. --Tony Szamboti, mechanical engineer and former member of the US Navy

The reviewer, below, who gave this book just 1 star - and gave all of the other top-selling books on this subject 1-star also, seems to have a mission. Looking at his other reviews he reviews only 9/11 evidence books that question the official theory, and he always dismisses them with 1-star, no matter what their merits are. If you consider the list of names above, is it possible to believe that such highly intelligent & important people would be stupid enough to be duped by authors of 1-star books; the same books that our 1-star-giving, seemingly politically motivated reviewer below dismisses, with, at best, unfair, very biased and irrelevant words (e.g. bemoaning the lifestyle of "9/11 truth" writers who live in California beach houses).Read more ›
The fact that WTC7 wasn't hit by a plane (or rocket or hologram...) but only by debris and burned for a short while before just giving up and falling down is literally the smoking gun for 9/11 conspiracy theorists. It wasn't even mentioned by the 9/11 Commission and the whitewash by NIST four years later demonstrated that they had no intention of rocking the boat by producing an objective and accurate report.
Why Americans are not rioting in the streets about this but will happily watch an entire news cycle about a wardrobe malfunction will always be a mystery to me.
The most disturbing thing to learn is NIST tweaking of temperatures to its simulations, missing shear studs and not heating concrete floor slabs with the steel, even though NIST admits not heating the concrete, their report still gives the impression that they have.
In his review he says read the 911 commission report if you want the truth. The truth is they don't mention the collapse of building 7 in the report, I'm now going to leave a few more discrepancies on here that was also left out of the commission report.
The Report fails to acknowledge that no steel-framed high-rise building has ever collapsed due to fires.
The Report fails to mention the total collapse of 47-story steel-framed skyscraper Building 7 at 5:20 on the day of the attack.
The Report contains no mention of the interview in which the owner of Building 7 states that he and the Fire Department decided to "pull" Building 7 -- an apparent admission of a conspiracy to destroy the building and its contents.
The Report fails to mention the rapid removal and recycling of the structural steel from the collapsed World Trade Center buildings, even to make excuses for it.
The Report makes no mention of a statement by then-Mayor Rudolph Giuliani to Peter Jennings indicating he had foreknowledge of the collapses: "We were operating out of there when we were told that the World Trade Center was gonna collapse, and it did collapse before we could get out of the building."
The Report contains no mentions of eyewitness accounts of explosions preceding the collapse of South Towers.
The Report fails to mention that George W. Bush's brother, Marvin Bush, and his cousin, Wirt Walker III, were principals in the company that had the contract to provide security for the World Trade Center, Stratesec, nor does it mention the company.Read more ›
