Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor’s New Book is Out

strongerJeff Bauman, a Boston Marathon attendee that lost both of his legs during the bombing at last year’s race, has a new book out.

In Stronger, written with author Bret Witter, Bauman recounts his tale as both witness and survivor. Bauman helped identify the bombers, while going through his own personal recovery. The book, from Grand Central Publishing, is now available.

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.
