Reviews

"Unmeasured Strength is a gripping tale of [Lauren Manning's] long fight back from a devastating injury that easily could have killed her... She has valuable lessons to impart about the personal challenges of overcoming physical and emotional adversity." --The Wall Street Journal"Intense, humbling, Manning's story is, above all, amazing." --Parade"With the steadfast love of her husband, Greg... and her own unwavering focus, Manning's inspiring memoir records an extraordinary path of resilience and willpower." --Vogue"All the emotion in her voice that's necessary shines through as she reads...Because of the way Lauren tells her story, even those who might normally be squeamish about hearing someone tell about medical procedures shouldn't worry. She speaks of her lengthy return to health tactfully and with grace, and I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone." --Bookloons"You are brave and courageous and a hero to all of us." --Hillary Rodham Clinton, Senator from New York, 2001"Your essence defines what it means to be survivor." --Oprah"This is a very inspiring book." --Barbara Walters, The View"I have found my new hero. Her name is Lauren Manning...Her determination is awe inspiring. She is the most remarkable woman I think I've ever met." --Katie Couric"One of the most extraordinary books I've read in a long time. I recommend everyone to go and read this, because it's a tale of inspiration and courage." --Piers Morgan, CNN"It's a powerful book ... There are so many 9/11 remembrances and so many 9/11 stories as we commemorate, celebrate, this tenth anniversary, but this one is the one that everybody's talking about." --Tavis Smiley, PBS"Unmeasured Strength is an extraordinary book. It is heartbreaking and shocking, compassionate and uplifting. It is a testament to determination and to love. Manning shows that life has things worth fighting for, if you have the clarity to see them and to fight unwaveringly until the end." --BookReporter.com"[An] uplifting story of courage, love and compassion... With honesty and simplicity, Manning details her miraculous escapes first from the crippled North Tower; then from limb amputation; and then from death, which stalked her relentlessly for three months. ... Ten years later, her life has returned to 'normality' thanks to the unstinting love shown her by family, friends and strangers." --Kirkus"Your message of hard work and faith would resonate in the day to day difficulties that we all face ... Lauren, your grace and courage are an inspiration." --Marla Lerner Tanenbaum Principal Owner, Washington Nationals Chairperson, Washington Nationals Dream Foundation"Unmeasured Strength is both an enduring story about the resilience of character and an ode to the human determination to defeat evil. Lauren Manning did what the mighty Greek Sisyphus could never do: push the boulder to the top of the hill and never let it roll down. She has written a brilliantly vivid, wholly empowering tour de force that makes the impossible seem possible; her inspiring example just may teach us how to reverse our fates." --Lucinda Franks, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, author of My Father's Secret War"An extraordinary story of the spirit's triumph over pain and the body's will to stay in this world despite being literally burned alive in the fires of the Twin Towers...This is a message of hope that we can all be grateful to share." --Vartan Gregorian, President, Carnegie Corporation of New York
