14,000 people were inside the Twin Towers in New York. To them it was just the start of another routine day at work. Over the next 102 minutes each would become part of a drama that changed the world forever. Of the millions of words written about that unforgettable day, most have been by outsiders. But New York Times reporters Jim Owyer and Kevin Flynn report solely from the perspective of those struggling to survive inside the towers ; 102 Minutes is the epic story of ordinary men and women finding the bravery and courage to overcome unbelievable odds. Fateful split-second decisions, chance encounters in smoke-filled stairwells, the heroism of the emergency services who climbed up as everyone else was coming clown - this is the authoritative account of the men and women in the World Trade Center - the 12,000 who escaped and the 2,149 who perished.
