Publisher's Summary

Explore the captivating history of the Titanic.

When thinking about the worst known maritime disaster in history, it is impossible not to think about all of the lives lost in a single night. One of the wealthiest men alive (and the wealthiest passenger aboard the ship) died in the same accident that took the life of a baby younger than five months old in steerage.

More than 100 years after the disaster, the survivors have passed on, but they left behind harrowing stories that remind us that every day is something to appreciate. These stories include love, loss, hope, failure, and everything in between. It is the tales told by those who survived that convey the feelings of that fateful night and the reality of the lives lost. 

In Titanic: A Captivating Guide to the History of the Unsinkable Ship RMS Titanic, Including Survivor Stories and a Real Romance Story, you will discover topics such as:

  • A predictable, preventable disaster
  • From beginning of construction to the final launch into history
  • Basic mistakes at a high price
  • A jolt followed by the worst-case scenario
  • A more human experience

Very informative

If you require a good, fundamental history of the Titanic, this book presents. This is not only the story of the sinking. It is the whole story of the ship, including its wreck. Really love it....

To be honest

The work is good, but not great. If someone you know asks you what they should read to introduce them to the Titanic, give them this. It embraces everything.

This was honestly my favorite Titanic book of all the ones I own. Very detailed. Play by play of the court hearings. Easy to read. Riveting and perfectly written. Any Titanic fanatic needs this book in their collection.

A couple of inaccuracies

Quite interesting, but narrator says in James Cameron's film Titanic, Bruce Ismay boards a lifeboat dressed as a woman (wrong) he just got on the boat in his own clothes and Murdoch gave him a filthy look. Also, he said Guggenheim and Astor were seen helping people into boats, they did nothing to help, they simply sat down, ordered brandy and vowed to go down like gentlemen, lazy gentlemen clearly. Nevertheless, quite interesting book.

I've read several books like this, but this one did have more knowledge than others. It was a bit disjointed for my taste, but I liked the information.

Titanic disaster

Most of us got what we know about this disaster from silly romanticized movies so it's interesting to read the original news reporting, which tends to raise more questions than answers about the several factors which lead to this disaster.

worth it

I learned quite a bit of new information that of course was portrayed differently than in the movie I watched. The pictures and newspaper articles were very neat to look at also.

Well written book

So glad for the knowledge and a different perspective of what really followed to cause the Titanic to sink. While the iceberg was there so was the fire. Well written and easy to understand.

Truth about the Titanic sinking

The wireless operator was often the sole-loss on sinking ships due to their devotion to relay information to rescuers until it was too late for them to be rescued themselves.

A fairly detailed history if the Titanic. There was information I hadn't known, especially about the construction. A good read overall.
