    Controversial but good

    Say what you will about the controversy surrounding this book, no one can deny the seriousness of the topic or the quality of the writing. While the prose gets a little "writerly" at times (a defensable lapse, assuming accuracy is not lost), "The waves generated winds that pushed it through the streets in dense, choking clouds and lifted it to mix with smoke and darken the morning. Then all the white paperwork floated down on the city as if in mockery of the dead." the writing is spot on. Earlier, he writes; For thirty years the Twin Towers had stood above the streets as all tall buildings do, as a bomb of sorts, a repository for the prodigious energy originally required to raise so much weight so high. Now, in a single morning, in twin ten-second pulses, the towers released that energy back into New York. This is a mirror held up to the events of 9/11 and there are some people who aren't goiing to like what's reflected back at them.
