A sad task to have to "unbuild" the bottom of the world trade center as well as make it safe for workers. You can add these workers to the list of heroes on and after 9/11

This book looks behind the "heroes" to portray the human face of the workers who moved all the debris from the World Trade Centers. The news media never showed this side of the work, and the tremendous toil and skill it took to unbuild the massive piles. A real portrayal of how life goes on after such a tragedy.

Jul 11, 2014 what do we learn from this book? That Brown and Root [later to be renamed KBR, or Kellog, Brown and Root after the merger] resided on the 58th floor of one of the WTC Towers. OK. The process of the towers' collapse? Somewhat farfetched! Each floor collapsed and crushed the core? And exactly how does each collapsing floor crush the core, which if it was that weak would never have been able to hold up all the floors? A science fiction explanation which simply doesn't cut the mustard, chum!
