Format: Hardcover
This is by far the best book I have ever come across about the night of April 15, 1912 when the Titanic sank.
This book is filled with 882 ½ facts (because the ship was 882 ½ ft. long) about the people, the ship, crew, heartwarming stories of how mothers pleaded for their sons to be allowed into life boats, how lovers said goodbye to each other, how people were refused into life boats, and how others never made it out of the ship.
There are detailed names, dates, info about the aftermath, a "whatever happened to..." page with facts about survivors, as well as great info about the discovery of the ship, exploration of the wreckage, facts about the movie directed by James Cameron, and a great glossary at the back of the book to learn about different words associated with the ship.
What I love most about this book is the heartfelt facts about the people who were on the ship, and what happened to them. If you have ever wanted to learn about The Titanic, this is THE book to buy. An Outstanding tribute to the souls loved and lost. Deserves 10 Stars.

Brilliant reference book. If you ever had wondering questions about the Titanic, this is your book. Summary: This book has answers to almost all of your questions about the ship and the sinking, etc. Wonderful facts. Reaction: Though this book is thin, it has plenty of little bits that can keep you interested 100 years later. Every Titanic fanatic will find a new fact on the ship and the people involved with it. Wonderful. A MUST BUY!!!

Bought this book through book club at daughters school. It is VERY informative. I thought I was up on a lot about Titanic, but this really taught me a lot more. Very good for any student or historian.

I love to read about the Titanic, and this book satisfied my hunger for more books about it. This book provides 882 and a half questions and answers about the Titanic. It was easy to read, well written, and had many photos. This book's questions and answers were very interesting, and I learned a lot from reading this book. This is an awesome book!

Format: Paperback
Amazing is a tiny stretch, but just tiny. Overall it is as promised- trivia style, easy to read. You can jump about if you wish.

I recommend reading another text about the titanic first then using this as a reference.

This book was the best!!!!! I have a book club and That was my first recommendation. IT is one of the best books that I have seen about the Titanic. It has a clear and easy-to-read format. Plus, it has facts tahr are undescribable. They are tons of interesting facts that you can read again and again. It is a truly wonderful collection and I reccomend all to read it. Such as did you know there were actually two Grand Staircases??? And Violet Jessop, former sewardess on the Titanic was also on Titanic's sister ships (Britannic and Olympic) when they sank? This is a book full of fun and facts. You will enjoy it for sure

Format: Paperback
I can recommend no better book for helping hook new Titanic fans! Thanks to Ken Marschall and others, this book is visually spectacular! The information is accurate, concise and presented very well, even if only in overview format. Hopefully, readers will be enticed to look deeper into what interests them. My only complaint is the author's continued use of the term "it" when referring to Titanic (ships are to be referred to with the feminine pronoun "she" and most consider it disrepectful to use "it"). Bottom line: Buy a hardcover for yourself and keep a softcover on hand to give to those you wish to introduce to Titanic!
