Michaeleen What do you think his motivations were behind this book?

Nayeli I was actually curious about this, but I didn't want to speculate on his motivations because the topic of the book is pretty sensitive... and honestly I've seen some people getting really upset on his "cashing in" with a tragedy. So I decided to read an interview instead...

Emily I don't believe he is, 'cashing in.' I believe he is educating.
If his soul purpose was to cash in, he would have made some easily written book, which had no other story line to it, except 9/11.
