Never before have I seen a nonfiction book as beautifully and compellingly written and illustrated as The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation. I cannot recommend it too highly. It will surely set the standard for all future works of contemporary history, graphic or otherwise, and should be required reading in every home, school and library. - Stan Lee
I'm equally as impressed as Stan Lee. This graphic novel is fantastic work. It's also a brilliant way to present the original 9/11commission report in a way accessible to everyone. Reviews for this book is even better than the original report! Amazing.
The book covers the plane crashes, the pilots, anti-terrorism activities in US, terrorism activities in other countries, the aftermath and lessons learnt.
Most compelling to read about is how political red trap has hindered anti-terrorism activities -- the inability for people to work together. There are so many instances where plans are not carried out because nobody could see it through and be the responsibilities for them. The way how the US government works is contrasted strongly by how the terrorist work, which is to disregard everything except to reach the goal.
At the end of the book, I'm not sure if anything has changed. I know some who rated the original commission report badly share my sentiments.
This is really a compelling read and recommended to anyone who wants to learn a bit more on the events that led up to that dreadful day.
