If this book has a moral, it is the one offered by every disaster movie, which is that the people who do best in emergencies are those who do not wait for the authorities to help but think and act for themselves.

Five Days at Memorial may be fair and balanced to a fault, for ultimately, it provokes more debate than it answers. The book is neither definitive nor palliative. Perhaps, Fink is suggesting, nothing is — or should be.
