    Great

    The ¿storm of the century¿ blanketed the entire eastern seaboard in 1991. Yet, it was ¿The Perfect Storm,¿ the story of just a handful of men from a small fishing town that best captured the epic event. Braving The Waves --- Rockaway Rises And Rises Again is about a handful of people from a small town as well. This might be the book that best captures two excruciating events in American history.

    Compelling

    This book tells the big story by making it "small." Kevin Boyle gets inside a small community and tells of their experiences on 9/11 and when Flight 587 crashed in Belle Harbor, Rockaway. It's written in a way that puts you at each place. There's heart-stopping action yet never so much that we forget we're reading about real people. I've never been to Rockaway but I plan on going there on my next trip to New York.

    From A Firefighter

    I just finished Kevin Boyle's book, Braving the Waves, and in my opinion it's fantastic! I lived through these tragedies and didn't think I wanted to read about them again but once I picked up his book, I couldn't put it down. Boyle gets inside the heads of the people he writes about. The firemen I know and respect won't open up or talk at all to reporters but they talk to Kevin because he's one of them, one of us. It choked me up half a dozen times. This book is a must read for everyone, the people from Rockaway who lived through the tragedies and outsiders who want a real insider's view. People who weren't there will feel like they were standing in the concrete dust of the WTC and smelling the burning jet fuel of Flight 587 after reading it. -George Johnson, FDNY

    You will cry & laugh

    If you have avoided books on this subject and feel it is time to read about 9/11. This is the book. On a day when Americans were murdered at a level never seen in our history, one neighborhood carried far more than they deserved only to have disaster strike again. This time in their backyard. Who would think it possible to feel good about such a sad story? Kevin Boyle did just that with this book. An easy read, everyone who loves New York should read this book.

    From the back cover:

    Few places-other than Ground Zero itself-can more acutely mark before and after September 11 and November 12, 2001 than the Harbor Light, a neighborhood pub in Rockaway, located in the shadows of Manhattan¿s skyscrapers. Before, you might meet regular customer, George Johnson, there. After, he¿s one of the flag-raising firefighters in the now-famous photo reminiscent of the marines at Iwo Jima. Before, you might bump into Mike Moran. After, he¿s the firefighter immortalized on a best-selling CD, who told a packed Madison Square Garden that Osama Bin Laden could ¿kiss his royal Irish ---.¿ Before, young stockbrokers would get a good-natured ribbing from their firefighting buddies for choosing the ¿safe¿ career path. After, you¿d find they weren¿t so safe after all. Before, you¿d meet Pete Hayden, Deputy Chief FDNY, having a beer with his brother Jack, who moonlights behind the bar when he¿s not fighting fires himself. After, you wouldn¿t see Pete much. He stayed at Ground Zero, working every day for two months straight. When he finally decided to give himself a day off, he picked November 12¿the day American Airlines Flight 587 crashed into his Rockaway neighborhood ¿ right next to the Harbor Light.
