Publisher's Summary

Having had unparalleled access to the Chilean mine disaster, award-winning journalist Jonathan Franklin takes readers to the heart of a remarkable story of human endurance, survival, and historic heroism.
33 Men is the groundbreaking, authoritative account of the Chilean mine disaster, one of the longest human entrapments in history.
Rushing to the scene when the miners were discovered, Franklin obtained a coveted "Rescue Team" pass and reported directly from the front lines of the rescue operation, beyond police controls, for six weeks.
Based on more than 110 intimate interviews with the miners, their families, and the rescue team, Franklin's narrative captures the remarkable story of these men and women, in details shocking, beautiful, comedic, and heroic. Gripping and raw, with never-before-revealed details, 33 Men is a true story that reads like a thriller.

Excellent

Listened through in one long night. I honestly couldn't put it down. There are only one or two books out of the hundreds I've read, that I got through in one go. It's simply riveting. I'm writing this review a few years after as I noticed a new book on the 33 and I considered buying it until I briefly revisited this one and realized there isn't much that I need to know that isn't covered here. I highly recommend this true story of human endurance, faith, strength and conviction.

clear, full of details and gripping

Rich story about how these 33 men got trapped, lived underground and were rescued. Fascinating details about what kind of "help" arrived from up above during the ordeal.
