Reviews - What do customers think about Time: Hurricane Katrina: The Storm That Changed America?

Media bias as usual  Aug 4, 2006
I was offended by the accusation in this book that poor black people were relegated to living in lower land in New Orleans and surrounding parishes. As usual the media wants to push their liberal, racial agenda on the south. Check the actual statistics on this hurricanes. More whites lost their lives than black and many, many wealthy areas (for blacks and whites)were devastated. Not just lower income people. We sick of having to correct people on this point.

Outstanding!  Jul 17, 2006
The book was a gift for my dad. He loved it! Very compelling stories and photography.
Past date to raise money, but still an important read  Apr 24, 2006
The photos and accounts delivered in this Time representation of Hurricane Katrina are invaluable. Bodies floating by houses, people trapped in their attics, the anger and frustration at the Superdome, the hope and good faith of the people searching for survivors. All of this is captured by great photojournalists and poignant captions. While some reviewers feel this book focuses on only two cities' ordeals with hurricane aftermath, I think the book captures what was happening in the worst cases. Having been published about a month after the occurance, you can leave the job of chronicling the entire event to a sociologist or someone more apt to turn a profit rather than raise money for the Red Cross. This book was published so quickly that I found many typos, ("Sept. 29th" instead of "Aug. 29th" was printed way too many times, and "kids" instead of "kinds", things that spell check wouldn't catch, but an editor should have). With that in mind, I think the goal was raising money and portraying what this country let happen to it's poor and elderly. Citizens don't build levees, governments do, and this government failed.
Biased reporting  Mar 13, 2006
This book, like most written and portraying Hurricane Katrina, leads the reader to the conclusion that New Orleans is the only area devastated thereby. For anyone's information, New Orleans was on the West, or weak, side of Katrina. New Orleans was flooded because: 1) elevation there is about 7 feet BELOW sea level and 2)their levy system has NEVER been built to withstand cat 3 or greater storms. EVERY drop of rain that falls in New Orleans has to be pumped out, one way or the other. If the citizens of New Orleans had put more money into improving their levy system instead of the SuperDome, they might very well be living in dry and undamaged homes today instead of morning their dead and trying to put their city back together. New Orleans will be rebuilt someday and I hope and pray that they have learned and benefited from this disaster and won't make the same mistakes again. If you want to read and look at a balanced book coverning Hurricane Katrina, this isn't it.
Time: Hurricane Katrina: The Storm That Changed America  Feb 24, 2006
Having lived through the Hurricane Katrina (I worked through it at one of only 3 surviving hospitals in metro New Orleans), the pictures are so profound. It comes as close to representing whatI experienced as can be represented by pictures. I highly recommend. This is one of two books that I've found that paint an accurate picture.
