Nine Months at Ground Zero

Nine Months at Ground Zero: The Story of the Brotherhood of Workers Who Took on a Job Like No Other - Glenn Stout, Charles Vitchers, Robert Gray, Joel Meyerowitz

Nine Months at Ground Zero is a collection of interleaved interviews with and reminisces from the construction workers who demolished the World Trade Center complex after the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.  The story revolves around General Foreman Charlie Vitchers and Crane Operator Robert Gray, who are given co-author credit.  


The individual vignettes were interesting and presented a side of the story that doesn't get a lot of notice. I think I understand why the book was organized in chronological order rather than telling one person's story from start to finish. But especially at the beginning, while I was still learning who the key folks were, I found the jumping around between narrators hard to follow .
