From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School-Mirroring the shape of the infamous towers, this book is a foot and a quarter long and eight inches across. The golden-hued photos on the front and back covers bind together a stunning pictorial history of the World Trade Center before, during, and after its construction, and the ever after of its destruction, with a mixture of diagrams and captioned photos-aged, angular, aerial, active. Some photographs fold out to poster-size. All of the graphics, whether in color or black and white or those that look monotone from the September 11 fallout, are telling and poignant. Along with the author's commentary, they serve as a eulogy to the Twin Towers and the indomitable spirit of the New York citizenry.
