For those of you who are talking about obscene things, you guys have to grow up. Nobody respects that type of people. Why would you talk about porn in the review section of an excellent book. Sell your conversation somewhere elde and go have a great future, asking for some money. You have to be a good person. Was your purpose of life to watch girls kissing or lesbians? The purpose of life is to be a good person and having such vague ideas in your head will ruin you and make you messed up. I bet that you look at beauty magazines for girls and you look at a model with her private spot showing. Grow up and please drain that out of your head, unless you really want to go to hell when you die. For those of you who want read this book, I strongly recommend this book. This is a great nonfiction story about an event that might've turned out to be as tragic as the 9/11 Twin Tower attacks. But it was a huge success for the 33 miners. I really enjoyed this book and strongly suggest this book. I'm turning into a senior in middle and I had to read this for my Summer Reading assignment. People should read this book, whether you have to for school or not. I reallt loved this book. You should check out my second reading book for my school, "Chew On This" by Charles Wilson and Eric Schlosser. That's a book about the secrets of the fast food restaurants. That book influenced me not to eat too much fast foods, even if I don't really eat it that much. Anyways, I strongly recommend those two books, this one and "Chew On This," book to people who want a great future and love to read. I want to go to Yale and go to law school for graduate school. I wish to be a US Supreme Court Chief Justice. That will happen to me one day :) Anyways, enjoy reading this book and the other book i mentioned!!! They're a joy!!! And that's a promise :)

I was led to believe that the author would tell us more about the personal lives of the miners before and after the disaster.....................it did not materialize. The book was very short with just over 100 pages. Jack Vax

Wow! I had no idea the dangers that miners went through. I'll never look at my jewelry the same again. I also learned a bit about our planet. This was a quick read and very informative. It was easy to understand and has great pictures that really brought the whole tragedy to light. Great for anyone.
