I expected a book about a blind man and his guide dog leaving one of the towers on September 11, 2001. The story of a blind man stepping into a world of danger without a vision but only a dog that can help him out to one of the tallest skyscraper that been built for years.

Thunder Dog is a story that will forever change your spirit and your perspective

Thunder Dog is a story that will forever change your spirit and your perspective. I’m sorry, the doctor said. He is permanently and totally blind. There is nothing we can do for him. George and Sarah Hingson looked at each other, devastated. Their six-month-old son, Michael was a happy, strawberry blond baby boy, healthy and normal in every way except one. When the Hingsons switched on a light or made silly faces, Michael did not react.

Faith. Trust. Triumph. "I trust Roselle with my life, every day. She trusts me to direct her. And today is no different, except the stakes are higher." —Michael Hingson. First came the boom—the loud, deep, unapologetic bellow that seemed to erupt from the very core of the earth. Eerily, the majestic high-rise slowly leaned to the south. On the seventy-eighth floor of the World Trade Center’s north tower, no alarms sounded, and no one had information about what had happened at 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001— what should have been a normal workday for thousands of people. All that was known to the people inside was what they could see out the windows: smoke and fire and millions of pieces of burning paper and other debris falling through the air. Blind since birth, Michael couldn’t see a thing, but he could hear the sounds of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding around him and his guide dog, Roselle. However, Roselle sat calmly beside him. In that moment, Michael chose to trust Roselle’s judgment and not to panic. They are a team. Thunder Dog allows you entry into the isolated, fume-filled chamber of stairwell B to experience survival through the eyes of a blind man and his beloved guide dog. Live each moment from the second a Boeing 767 hits the north tower, to the harrowing stairwell escape, to dodging death a second time as both towers fold into the earth. It’s the 9/11 story that will forever change your spirit and your perspective. Thunder Dog illuminates Hingson’s lifelong determination to achieve parity in a sighted world, and how the rare trust between a man and his guide dog can inspire an unshakable faith in each one of us.

Michael Hingson, an extraordinary man, is the subject of this exemplary book, a tribute to his triumph over blindness and to his wonderful guide dog, Roselle, a Golden Retriever - Labrador Retriever mix, who help Michael and his friend David descend 78 floors (20 steps down, landing, turn, 19 steps down) of the North Tower when the World Trade Center was attacked by Muslim extremists September 11, 2001.

Micheal's background is integrated into the story of his flight from the Tower. He was raised by parents who made few concessions to his blindness. For example, though totally blind, he was allowed to bicycle freely in his small California town of Palmdale. He had a panoply of hobbies. He went on through conventional high school and on to University of California at irvine, where he earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in physics.

Michael's wife, paraplegic from birth, is another impressive person in this story. Theirs is a marriage to admire.

As over a thousand other reviewers have attested here, this is an inspiring book, well worth reading.

Congratulations, too, to Michael's co-author...you've collaborated to write a wonderful testament to human and canine courage.

Dual story--a man, Michael Hingson and a dog, Roselle. In fact several dogs that served a man who was blind from birth. The man's story is one of a child who was raised to "do everything" like ride a bicycle, drive a car (with supervision), and tackle a difficult college program leading to a degree in physics. Much of his story was much the same as described by Tom Sullivans in "If You Could See What I Hear".

As for the dogs story, this is one of the best descriptions I have read about the raising and training of Guide Dogs. So many of the dogs qualify because of their personalities and eager willingness to do their job. Roselle helped not only Michael down 78 flights of steps in the World Trade Center tower, she also helped many others with her calmness and dedication. Even after the collapse of the tower, she helped guide on the dusty street and used her instincts to lead several to safety.

There is now a Roselle's Dream Foundation the goal of which is to "help today's blind children and adults have access to the technology the need to excel in school and at work and to live out their dreams".

This was a remarkable, informative and captivating true story. Thunder DOG is built on the true loyalty, devotion and compassion of a blind man and his remarkable guide dog Roselle. Through their harrowing experience of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks on The World Trade Center and the Bonded Faith and Trust between Man and DOG this story will really let you know what your GOD given priorities should really be in this short time we have here on earth.

This story is insightful, inspirational and brings such educated awareness regarding the blind and the training of a Guide Dog.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read from beginning to end. Informative, encouraging, educational, compassionate, trustworthy, loving and insurmountable bonding from the physical aspect to the emotional as well as the instinctive. ..

I would have loved to have given MICHAEL HINSON AND ROSELLE
10 GOLD STARS OF EXCELLENCE. ..

I've learned quite a bit from this book. I've learned how blindness doesn't have to be considered a handicap. I liked learning first hand what it's like and how to act if I encounter someone who is blind.

This was the first book I've read on 9/11 that gave an account of what it was like walking down the stairs of the Towers that day and being outside when they fell. Roselle was an amazing dog!

Thank you, Michael, for writing this book.

This is more than a book about survival through teamwork of man and his guide dog. It also is a very informative and inspiring book, inspiring as here is s man blind since birth who refers to it a nuisance rather than a tragedy and informative with numerous resources both for the blind and those seeking information. In a world of many people with a mentality of victimhood here is a man who declares his normality in a of the sighted.

On apersonal note, my mother was very brave in her time of decreasing vision due to macliar degeneration. Mom passed at the age of 102 1/2 still sharp and more up on the news of the world then people half her age. Mom took advantage of the great services of the Braille Institute audiobooks books. Should I be challenged with similar vision loss, I pray that I am as strong as my mom was.

Thunder Dog is the story of Michael Hingson and his service dog, Roselle, surviving the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. But it's also about what it means to grow up blind in a world full of sight, and what it takes to make a good service dog.

Roselle's story is powerful and compelling. While Hingson's writing style may not be perfect, he tells the details as he remembers them. Some other reviewers say the story isn't so much about the dog. Ok - that's true, to an extent. But as the author himself states, you have to understand his life story to know how he came to be in the twin towers that day; and then you better appreciate how the events unfolded around him. You can practically feel yourself in the tower stairwell with him as his dog helps guide him - and others - out of the building.

Most people don't know how much time, effort, and training it takes to make a service dog, and the percentage of dogs that make it successfully through training. This book helps people appreciate service dogs more, not just for their unselfish behavior in times of crisis, but their day-to-day support of those who need them most. Hopefully, it also gets people to understand that service dogs are not so much "pets" as they are "working dogs", constantly on-call for their beloved owners.
