MEDIA REVIEWS
"With the upcoming tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, this guide is suggested for midsized and larger public libraries, middle grade to high school libraries, and academic popular collections." - Library Journal
"The editors are to be commended for including unusual topics that might pique the interest of students and general readers: greeting cards, comic books, humor, and comfort food for the recovery workers, among others. This book is a good ready-reference source for students, researchers, and general readers." - Booklist Online
"This well-produced guide is a surprisingly rich compendium of the numerous ways in which the events of 9/11 have insinuated themselves into people's daily lives and the cultural landscape. . . . this is a nuanced, sensitive guide to a profoundly powerful and disturbing historic event." - Choice
