Formatted abstract
Surviving 9/11: Impact and Experiences of Occupational Therapy Practitioners presents the experiences of a number of individuals who were directly involved with the various aspects of the rescue and recovery process that came about as a result of the attack on the World Trade Centre. A variety of skilled professionals have contributed chapters to this publication. Those who share their stories include occupational therapists, fire-fighters, students, and teachers—and most write quite openly regarding not only their experiences, but also their personal feelings of fear and apprehension, in addition to the concerns they felt for both colleagues and clients. Coloured photographs are used extensively to compliment the written word, and to illustrate the physical and emotional impact of this almost incomprehensible assault.

The book is interesting, insightful, and informative, but is also captivating and challenging as the authors openly present the devastating impact of terrorism on the physical and emotional well-being of a vast number of individuals for many years to come.
