Hardcover (April 2014)
The New York Times bestselling memoir of the 27-year-old
Boston Marathon bombing survivor.
When Jeff Bauman woke up on Tuesday, April 16th, 2013 in the
Boston Medical Center, groggy from a series of lifesaving
surgeries and missing his legs, the first thing he did was
try to speak. When he realized he couldn't, he asked for a
pad and paper and wrote down seven words: "Saw the guy.
Looked right at me," setting off one of the biggest manhunts
in the country's history.
Just thirty hours before, Jeff had been at the finish line
of the 2013 Boston Marathon cheering on his girlfriend,
Erin, when the first bomb went off at his feet. As he was
rushed to the hospital, he realized he was severely injured
and that he might die, but he didn't know that a photograph
of him in a wheelchair was circulating throughout the world,
making him the human face of the Boston Marathon bombing
victims, or that what he'd seen would give the Boston police
their most important breakthrough.
In STRONGER, Jeff describes the chaos and terror of the
bombing itself and the ongoing FBI investigation in which he
was a key witness. He takes us inside his grueling
rehabilitation, and discusses his attempt to reconcile the
world's admiration with his own guilt and frustration. .
Brave, compassionate, and emotionally compelling, Jeff
Bauman's story is not just his, but ours as well.
