Book Review: An Unbroken Bond

39BookAn Unbroken Bond
By Edie Lutnick

On Sept. 11, 2001, 658 men and women who worked at Cantor Fitzgerald in the World Trade Center were trapped together in their offices during the terrorist attacks.

None of them made it out alive.

This book is about what happens in the aftermath. One of those who died that day was Long Islander Edie Lutnick’s brother Gary.

In An Unbroken Bond, Lutnick tells the story of the 9/11 victims, how she lost her brother and how all the Cantor families bonded over the tragic events of that day.

In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, Lutnick and her other brother, Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick, teamed up to create a fund for the firm’s families and in the process faced many obstacles and roadblocks, from political jockeying to class biases.

In the book Lutnick says, “We are broken. We will never be the same. But we have persevered through the unfathomable obstacles, and we are still here with our shared humanity intact.”

Lutnick shares the powerful story of this unbroken bond as the Cantor families battle the system in order to honor their loved ones.
