We gave it an A-

Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn, both writers for The New York Times, provide a painstakingly detailed account of the events of 9/11 as seen from those inside the Twin Towers. After culling thousands of pages of e-mails, radio and 911 transcripts, as well as interviewing hundreds of survivors, they offer a masterful account of the 102 minutes that elapsed from first impact to final collapse, humanizing their technical analysis in the personal histories of dozens of victims. With its tragic and preordained conclusion, 102 Minutes becomes a tearjerker in a most essential way.
