The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History by Garrett M. Graff. I have read at least half a dozen books on Sept 11. Having said that, there were many things I learned about that day from this book. They talked to many survivors, first respnders, and family members of those lost. I believe it is a must read for those who were born after the event or were too young to remember. DB96933
