"[This book] embodies the Buddhist wisdom about change, life, and the
world more than anything written after the events of that day."

CNN DOC BASED ON THIS BOOK
CNN will air The Flag, a prime-time documentary on September 4, 8, and 11--based on the last chapter of Watching the World Change. The movie, directed by Michael Tucker and Petra Epperlein, tells the back-story of the famous photograph, by Thomas Franklin, showing three firefighters raising the American flag at Ground Zero on 9/11. This is the second in a series of documentaries being released by CNN FILMS, the first being the critically acclaimed Our Nixon, which was broadcast this month. (Check your local listings for times near you.)
Also: For those who don't yet have the book, this week Picador releases an e-book "short" of the last chapter, "The Flag"--for 99 cents.
