There have been accounts of the raising of the World Trade Center—but not by someone who knows the buildings so intimately, the man who supervised the construction. The towers marked "both the pinnacle of accomplishment" for the firm bearing Koch's name, and "the beginning of its demise as a proud family enterprise." Readers will learn about the workings of cranes, the problem of anchoring the towers in "some of the mushiest land this side of the Amazon" and innovations in technology that made the job possible.
