Recommends it for: only die-hard 9/11 obsessed people
Recommended to Astrila by: Me

This was, appropriately, one of my subway books while we were living in New York, (convenient small size, to be kept in purse to be read on subway). Unless you're living in New York, it's really not that interesting. And even if you are, it's still not that interesting. An easy book to read on the subway because you don't mind stopping all the time and reading in bits and pieces.
