Praise for Last Man Down

“Picciotto’s account is one survivor’s remarkable story…Its strength is its tone: conversational, free of literary pretense…The book is both grim and inspiring.”—USA Today

“A gritty and moving firsthand account by the highest ranking firefighter to survive the collapse of the twin towers…Picciotto’s honesty—and honor—shine through every page of this page-turner.”—Associated Press

“Incredible…[Richard Picciotto] has a remarkable story to tell.”—The Washington Post

“Gripping…the first book written by a firefighter inside the towers.”—New York Daily News
“Unforgettable…There is no substitute for hearing him tell his story in his own voice…So gut-wrenching is the telling, one is tempted to hope that the rumble of American B-52s over Afghanistan sounds as terrifying to the enemy as the ‘sick, black noise’ that enveloped Chief Picciotto and his men that day…This is a stirring tribute to the men we now know deservedly as ‘heroes.’”—The Washington Times

“Will shake and inspire readers to the core…It’s Picciotto and his comrades’ courage and willingness to sacrifice that every reader will remember, and honor, upon closing this gritty, heartfelt remembrance of a day of infamy and profound humanity.”—Publishers Weekly

“[A] gripping first-person account…An invaluable eyewitness to history as well as a professional just doing his job…this inspirational account serves as a tribute to all the firefighters and rescue personnel who unquestioningly put their lives on the line that day.”—Booklist
