The 9/11 Commission released their final report to the public on July 22, 2004. During the course of the Commission's 20-month investigation, the 10 commissioners and 80 staff members conducted more than 1300 interviews in 10 countries and reviewed more than 2 million documents. In the 17 days of public hearings, the commissioners heard testimony from 140 federal, state, and local officials, and private sector experts.
The Commission was composed of Chair Thomas H. Kean, Vice Chair Lee H. Hamilton, and Commissioners Richard Ben-Veniste, Fred F. Fielding, Jamie S. Gorelick, Slade Gorton, Bob Kerrey, John F. Lehman, Timothy J. Roemer, and James R. Thompson.
Audie Award Finalist, Achievement in Production, 2005
"The prose is free from bureaucratese and, for a consensus statement, the report is remarkably forthright. Though there could not have been a single author, the style is uniform. The document is an improbable literary triumph." (The New York Times Book Review)

Absolutely Outstanding Historical Document
I expected a dry, factual report. I was surprised to see this is outstanding, both in its content and in the quality of the writers that produced it. The report contains the details we would expect regarding the events of 911, but I didn't expect the background material that sets the events, terrorism itself, and the ominous future we all face now in a historical context that makes it all the more frightening. Excellent narration too.

Commission Report is essential reading.
This report should be required reading in educational establishments all over the western hemisphere, as it explains how pointers were missed and/or ignored by government and intelligence agencies in the USA, with tragic consequences.

Worth the cost
Interesting to hear the fundamentals behind the event but a shame they are one sided with it the outline the evidence shows and obviously controlled to keep to the given story we know of 9/11. Worth checking out because of the cheap price.

Surprisingly 'wet' -
I bought this because the price was so cheap. My expectation was that it was going to be a very dry congressional report that reads like an encyclopedia. To my surprise, it was a very well written, narrated , and interesting account of 9/11. Its more like a book than a report. If you think you heard it all about 9/11; you haven't. This takes you into the middle of everything that happened on that day and leading up to it. It guarantees to offer something you had not heard in the past 10 years.
