About the Author

James Cameron is an Oscar®-winning film director and celebrated explorer. The visionary behind record-setting blockbuster movies such as Titanic, Avatar, and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Cameron’s passion for diving and exploration has led him to embark on a number of trailblazing deep-sea expeditions, including more than thirty dives to Titanic. Cameron made history when he undertook the first ever solo dive to the Mariana Trench in 2012.

Don Lynch has researched Titanic and her passengers and crew for four decades. Official historian for the Titanic Historical Society, Inc., he authored the books Ghosts of the Abyss and the New York Times best seller Titanic: An Illustrated History. Lynch was the chief historical advisor for James Cameron’s blockbuster movie, Titanic, and has participated in two of Cameron’s expeditions, diving to the wreck twice. He lives in Los Angeles.

Ken Marschall is a renowned artist who has been painting Titanic since he was sixteen. Since then, his vast familiarity with the ship's structural details has led to involvement in numerous Titanic projects, from model kits to motion pictures and the illustration of many books. The visual historian for James Cameron's Titanic movie. Ken later accompanied the director on two Titanic expeditions and dived to the wreck six times. He lives in Southern California.

Parks Stephenson first worked with James Cameron during the filming of Ghosts of the Abyss in 2002, studying the underwater footage and creating the first-ever accurate computer-generated imagery of Titanic’s Marconi and Silent rooms. He also joined Cameron’s 2005 expedition for the Discovery Channel program Last Mysteries of the Titanic and made his first dive to the wreck. He lives in Los Angeles.

This is really three books in one. All of the information is very interesting. And since I was one of the television crew members on one of the expeditions I can attest to it's accuracy.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Marcel J on July 23, 2013
Format: Hardcover
This book is a good overview of Cameron's major dives to the wreck of Titanic. Spanning about a decade, Cameron takes you through the planning, and execution of each complicated dive to Titanic, as well as the creation of the various equipment that he and his team created in order to realize their dive objectives. The text is sound, and characteristic of Cameron's "easy going" style of narrative.

The real selling feature of this book is its lavish presentation. The pictures are extremely crisp and clear and are printed in hi-definition. Many of these images have been painstakingly pieced together by noted Titanic artist and historian Ken Marschall from several images obtained from the wreck. Marschall has also supplied his beautiful new Titanic spreads to the end of each chapter. However, most of these will be familiar to those who have his 2012 Centennial commemoration calender.

Some of the other highlights are the various sub-topics that discuss the MIR subs, rusticles, and the exploration of the Marconi and Turkish Bath rooms. Included are beautiful CGI renderings which enable the reader to get a sense of just how beautifully appointed Titanic really was. Another noted addition to this book is the moving and personal dive journal that Cameron wrote on one of his dives.

Overall a good book that should belong in your collection!

This book explains the whole story about the famous ship to the present day in hi-def photos. And Jim Cameron's efforts to unveil the whole behind the scene story about his award winning movie and his unparalleled passion for RMS Titanic and deep dive explorations. A whole book is a dedication to the human part of the story... I say this book should be in every collection...

This is a superb volume on the Titanic expeditions. The artwork is glorious, and this serves as an excellent companion piece to Ken Marschall and Don Lynch's previous Titanic volume. I poured through this in an hour after receiving it, and have already gone back and started to look at the photos and artwork again.
Love it.

James Cameron has written a book that is, as the title suggests, as much about exploring the Titanic as it is about the ship. I particularly liked the insert section describing piloting a bot. And, beautiful illustrations include several great color graphic recreations of interiors. This is a highly recommended addition to an enthusiasts library of Titanica.
