I have studied TITANIC most of life and before the movie, TITANIC, It was hard to find TITANIC books. This one and Don Lynch's TITANIC AN ILLUSTRATED history were the best out. This is like a dictonary. It has the most informaition of all TITANIC books. I would recomend this book to anyone. It is a great book for the begginer for its info and great price. BUY THIS BOOK!

This is one of my my personal favorite Titanic books. I am a Titanic buff and am hungry for facts, and, to say the least, am now full. This book has from the Titanic gross tonnage to how much money Col. John Jacob Astor had in his pocket when his body was found.
This is a must for any Titanic Library, and is a great companion to Titanic: Triumph and Tragedy. It has a timeline of the ship, the dimension, the WHOLE story (it was reprinted in 1998), and CRAMMED cover to cover with facts.
I was disappointed to see, however, that it did not include the complete names of many people. Anyway, the good eradicates the bad, so I think any one who is even mildly interested in the Titanic should waste no time and get this book. Now.

This volume is a cornerstone of any Titanic collection. Those who wish to explore the innumerable 'what ifs' of the disaster will be better off elsewhere, but there isn't a more dispassionate, detailed and vivid recounting of the Titanic's construction, voyage and demise. Crammed with facts, the text is brought alive by page after page of very evocative pictures. The authors tell the story very straight and avoid much of the lurid speculation common to others, but for a great read that puts you right on the great liner, this book serves well.

This is probably my favorite short book on the Titanic. It may not have all the material available elsewhere, but for a pretty quick read, it is about as good as they come. Those who like to curl up and read history books should have a great time here.

Authors Eaton and Haas have written several Titanic books, and in most they have skipped over the sinking itself and concentrated on other aspects of the disaster. Here the sinking is the focus. The 1912 disaster unfolds for the reader. A wonderful set of illustrations complements the text as well.
