|She had a Wall Street job, a loving husband and infant son, and a confidence born of intelligence and beauty. But on 9/11, good fortune was no match for catastrophe. When a wall of flame burned more than 80 percent of her body, Manning began a 10-year journey of survival and rebirth that tested her almost beyond human endurance.|
From the Publisher:
Traces the decade-long recovery journey of a September 11 survivor who suffered burns on more than 80 percent of her body, describing her experiences during the attacks and the ways she needed to change to renew her commitments to life and her loved ones. 125,000 first printing.
"UNMEASURED STRENGTH is a gripping tale of [Lauren Manning's] long fight back from a devastating injury that easily could have killed her. Though her story has been told before--in the press, in a book by her husband, and on television on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and "Today"--Ms. Manning's own account, arriving in time for the 10th anniversary of 9/11, goes beyond those tributes to her courage. Her graphic descriptions of the physical ordeal of a burn victim may churn the stomach, but she has valuable lessons to impart about the personal challenges of overcoming physical and emotional adversity." - Laura Landro 08/30/2011
