Summary " April 15th, 2012, will be the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. People have an endless fascination with the Titanic, yet much of what they know today is a mixture of fact and fiction. In one hundred and one brief and engaging chapters, Tim Maltin, one of the foremost experts on the Titanic, reveals the truth behind the most common beliefs about the ship and the night it sank. From physics to photographs, lawsuits to love stories, Maltin doesn't miss one tidbit surrounding its history. Heavily researched and filled with detailed descriptions, quotes from survivors, and excerpts from the official inquiries, this book is guaranteed to make readers rethink everything they thought they knew about the legendary ship and its tragic fate.

great book X
February 20 2014
A fantastic biography talked through the actul ship Titanic. One thing the book did a really good job at is the way this was written. Each chapter is an interesting facts sob you can stop at anywhere and always go back to it. Another thing the book did a good job at was the how the book restored the story and daily life of passengers. I think this book was really great for refrence or people who just want to know more about the Titanic.
