Praise
"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."
From the Publisher
Editors Note "Manning's inspiring memoir records an extraordinary path of resilience and willpower." ?Vogue She was a hardworking business woman, had a loving husband and an 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 at the World Trade Center burned more than 80% of her body, Lauren Manning began a ten-year journey of survival and rebirth that tested her almost beyond human endurance. On that terrible day, Manning possessed the strength to insist that she would not yield?not to the terrorists, not to the long odds, not to the bottomless pain. Over the years, she discovered that she needed to transform completely, and to embrace her life and her loved ones in an entirely new way.Fleeing the burning tower, Manning promised herself that she would see her son's face again. Courageous and inspiring, Unmeasured Strength tells the riveting story of her heroic effort to make that miracle?and so many others?possible.
Editors Note 1 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.
