and a Disaster Ten Miles Into the Darkness hare ② Kindle Ebook By Neil Swidey │ Starred Review In the summer of 1999, after an extraordinary project to clean up filthy Boston Harbor was stalled, five commercial divers were brought in for a dangerous, high stakes mission hundreds of feet beneath the ocean floor To unstick the Deer Island sewer treatment plant project, the men entered a 10 mile long tunnel, a dark and claustrophobic space in which oxygen was fed to each man through an umbilical hose When the mission went wrong, the men found themselves fighting for their lives in a race to get out of the tunnel Swidey spent five years poring over documents and interviewing all the major figures, including the surviving divers, who speak for the first time about the tragedy and its lasting impact on their lives More than just an exploration of the elements of a mission gone wrong the politics, engineering, and design , this is a look at the dangerous jobs done by countless workers executing the grand plans of politicians and engineers that are taken for granted With the pacing and feel of a special ops adventure and the insight of a public policy investigation, Swidey details the lives of the divers, leading up to their fateful mission, the horrors of the ordeal, and its aftermath as the survivors coped with trauma and guilt Vanessa BushA 2014 Booklist Editor s Choice 1 Boston Globe bestsellerA NEIBA bestsellerWhile corporate boardrooms are the usual point of entry for dramas involving big money and technological hubris, Swidey, a journalist and author, works instead from the bottom up in his impressively reported accountHis is a skillful examination into the basic fragility of such huge infrastructural projects and a lesson in how worker fatalities result not so much from single catastrophic mistakes as from a series of small, bad decisions made by many individuals New York Times Book ReviewA harrowing account of one of the largest engineering projects in U.S history and of the hubris and ignorance that led to tragedyA cautionary tale, which Mr Swidey writes with splendid heart Wall Street JournalIntenseA Perfect Storm of public works the great, awful narrative about the building of a ten mile tunnel that ends in a very dark place beneath the Atlantic Maybe not for claustrophobes definitely for everyone else New YorkDramaticThrough his meticulous reporting, Swidey sheds light on how the largest monuments to our collective genius are also the most likely to be seriously flawed Audacious, brilliant, imaginative construction projects are really, really hard to buildand ultimately theyre built not by the dreamers who conceived them, but by the sandhogs and divers sent deep into the earth Chris Jones, EsquireA harrowing account of how commercial divers risk their lives to improve ours After reading Neil Swideys engrossing Trapped Under the Sea, you will never look at a bridge or tunnel in the same way Men s Journal Trapped Under the Sea transcends narrow geography in many ways as exemplary investigative reporting, as superb narrative writing, as a cautionary tale of capitalistic greed, as a case study of how government agencies can protect or harm, and as a rare glimpse into the scary world of underwater dive crews Swidey masterfully portrays the lives of the five divers, their loved ones, their work colleagues and their supervisors It is a rare book that portrays blue collar skilled laborers so thoroughly and compellingly Steve Weinberg, Dallas Morning NewsPerhaps Swideys greatest accomplishment is how through
