Boston Marathon Bombings Survivor Publishes Book

jeffbaumanBoston Marathon bombings survivor Jeff Bauman has written a book about his experience. The book is called Stronger and tells the story of how the runner woke up with no legs and the year he spent healing.

The book, from Grand Central Publishing, is available for preorder and ships in April. Here is more about the book from the Amazon listing:

Just thirty hours prior, Jeff was surrounded by revelry at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon. The first bomb went off at his feet as he awaited his girlfriend’s finish. When Jeff awoke days later from hours of surgery, rather than take stock of his now completely altered life, Jeff ripped out his breathing tube and tried to speak. He couldn’t. Jeff asked for a pad and paper and he wrote down seven words, ‘Saw the guy. Looked right at me,’ setting off one of the biggest manhunts in the country’s history and beginning his own brave road to recovery.
