9781595263858: Fire in the Skyscraper: A NYC Batallion Chief Analyzes Why and How the Towers Collapsed

"In this comprehensively researched and extremely well written book, former FDNY Battalion Chief Arthur Scheuerman combines his twenty year career as a NYC Firefighter with five years of meticulously dedicated research to help the reader understand just how and why the Twin Towers collapsed on 9/11.
The chief analyzes and interprets, in clear and concise terms, all the factors which combined to create the largest structural collapse in world history and the largest loss of life on American soil since the Civil War. And he goes even farther than the NIST Federal Investigation did, because he carefully considers the effect of the Port Authority s immunities and exemptions from building and fire codes on the design, construction and ultimate collapse of the WTC." --Sally Regenhard, Chair of the Skyscraper Safety Committee

"Arthur Scheuerman has written a book through the eyes of a firefighter and structural engineer. His careful and objective analysis of the facts and images of the Towers collapse on 9/11 should be required reading for those who seek answers." --James Quintiere, Professor of Fire Protection Engineering, University of Maryland

"Great book for the engineering and fire service community. This book integrates the many complicated factors in the collapse and clarifies how the fires brought the buildings down." --Vincent Dunn, Deputy Chief (Ret.) FDNY
