About the Author

Jonathan Franklin has lived in Chile for more than fifteen years, twelve of those as The Guardian (UK) correspondent for Chile.

Granted a Rescue Team credential at the site of the Chilean mine disaster, his dispatches ran in The Guardian, The Washington Post, The Observer (UK) and The Sydney Morning Herald.   As cameraman at the mine, he filmed exclusive footage for ABC News, CNN International, Univision and the Discovery Channel.

Fluent in Spanish, Franklin has covered events ranging from the arrest of Augusto Pinochet to the inner workings of the cocaine trade during his years in South America.  His features are regularly published in GQ, Esquire, Marie Claire, Playboy and many other magazines.  As cofounder of www.AddictVillage.com, Mr. Franklin travels throughout Latin America to produce reports for magazines and newspapers worldwide. His investigative reporting has been used by ABC’s Nightline, CBS’s 60 Minutes, A&E, the BBC and numerous documentary productions worldwide.

An American who was raised in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and attended Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, Franklin moved to Chile in 1994 and currently resides in Santiago with his wife, Toty Garfe, and his six daughters.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read, I highly recommend it March 30 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this book, even though it gets a bit more truthful and darker than the press releases originally admitted to. I cried at each milestone, remembering the coverage being shown in the news, and on cnn the night they were rescued. This is one book I'll be keeping, and am glad to have bought the hard cover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! April 21 2011
By Jaybird
During the actual Mining crisis I was stuck to the tv like glue. I worried on a daily basis about these 33 men. When I saw this book I couldn't wait to get home and read it. It took me 1 day. One of the best books I've read ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Total Access Feb. 18 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
As a fellow journalist and author, I can only marvel at how Franklin managed total access to this incredible story. His narrative writing style presents itself more like the look and feel of a novel than a work of nonfiction. I found myself taking pause while reading to remember that this is a true story.

Franklin pulls you in and doesn't let go. For the ultimate insider's look at the definitive account of a fascinating tale of perseverance, determination, and survival, I highly recommend "33 Men."

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!! I thought I knew the story but this is it! Feb. 18 2011
By Marie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was fascinated with the Chilean Miners' story when it was happening and picked this book up not expecting to learn anything new because of the extensive coverage at the time. But this is a great story with rich details I hadn't heard before, brought to life by someone who is clearly an excellent writer. I know it's a cliche, but I couldn't put it down!

I recommend this to anyone who wants to read a very well written story of adventure and heart. This is truly a remarkable 21st century saga of human trial and survival with just enough cultural context and technical information to make it a book that also teaches something about what's possible in this global hi-tech world we live in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing human story Feb. 17 2011
By Paul Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I live in Chile now and this guy definitely had a back stage pass as the details and angles that describe the events are awesome. It has a great flow which makes it easy to read and very difficult to put down - probably read it faster than Alive or Into Thin Air... a must read - after all it was one of the largest TV events in history and here's the inside scoop.

5.0 out of 5 stars the real story Feb. 19 2011
By reader - Published on Amazon.com
Like so many of us I followed this story praying for a happy ending. While I was overjoyed to see these men emerge I was disappointed to see the story disappear and these men paraded around without learning what really happened down there. This book finally gave me the whole story and is extremely well written. Mr Franklin clearly got to know these men and everyone involved. The back story is so much more compelling than the highlight reel we were given on TV. While this story is far from over I am thankful that I am able to finally get a glimpse into what was really happening at the mine, both above ground and below. Great journalism like this is the only way we can truly appreciate what these men went through, and how it has changed their lives forever.

Great Book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Heart-Pounding Read Feb. 18 2011
By Laurence Gonzales - Published on Amazon.com
I received the book in the afternoon and couldn't put it down. A fast-paced intimate look at this story that obsessed the world for more than two months. Franklin's unusual access to the rescue and the people involved--not to mention his long experience as a journalist--give a rare glimpse of what really went on. Fasten your seat belt for a wild ride.
