This book stands as one of the most authoritative accounts of this terrible disaster. It is based on the first hand accounts of survivors and was published within weeks of the tragedy.

Terrifying to see the multiple errors that combined to lead to this huge marine disaster, and so sad to know it could all have been prevented.

Certainly one of the better books I have read about the Titanic.

Found a few more bits of information, trying to find out as much as possible about lifeboat 5 in particular but there is still a bit of confusion about it, have learnt a bit more though so will keep reading.

Amazing, I just wish I could find a book that had more to do with what happened on board the ship before the accident. Their day to day activities, especially those in the first class.

Great read for my 7 year old. We followed up by watching the IMAX documentary Titanica. He had lots of questions about how the 3rd class passengers were treated; sparked some good teachable moments.

Listened to a short excerpt. With all the data available in other mediums, this didn't seem to offer anything new or unheard of before.
