Kurzbeschreibung


Why Buy This Book?


A hundred years after it sank on its maiden voyage, the Titanic continues to fascinate people around the world. This book tells you the inside story of this mighty ship, its epic journey and it's tragic demise. 

Rave Reviews

"A hundred years on, and it's still a big story. I found this a fascinating of a real human tragedy, so sad but also very interesting."

"It's amazing how many things had to go wrong in combination for the ship to sink. This book details all the events, and shows you how stupid this tragedy was."

"A good book that gets right into the detail of the story. What a shame that so many lives were lost due to bad planning and stupid mistakes."

"This is a detailed account of the whole episode, from the building of the ship, to what happened when it went down, through to the finding of the wreck and more. A good read all round."

"This is interesting. I found there were a lot of things I didn't know about. It goes well beyond the story of the movie to tell you the truth behind what happened. Very sad, though."

What's Inside

This book digs beneath the surface to tell you the whole story of the Titanic disaster. You will discover a whole host of amazing - and sometimes shocking - facts, including:
  • The forgotten item that doomed Titanic to a grim appointment with an iceberg
  • Why the helmsmen steered the Titanic into the iceberg instead of away from it
  • How the language you spoke could mean the difference between life and death
  • Why the crew started firing guns at passengers
  • Why most first-class passengers survived while most third-class passengers died
  • How the moon helped to sink the Titanic
  • Why a nearby ship failed to come to the rescue
  • Why the Titanic didn't have enough lifeboats

...and much more.

1.0 von 5 Sternen RIP OFF! 11. März 2012
Von chrissy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I should've realized that the number of pages the book contained not being listed cant be a good sign, but I gave this awful book a chance. Spending $5.00 on a book you can read in 10 minutes hardly seems worth it, but to add insult to injury, the book is full of photos of "Jack and Rose" from the movie. I'm looking for legitimate. Titanic information, nit superficial information for people interested solely because they think Leonardo Dicaprio is cute. Skip, skip skip or risk a HUGE disappointment!

3.0 von 5 Sternen It is very short.. 3. April 2012
Von Cheryl M-M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It is novella length so I read it in 20 mins. I am not sure what relevance the film info and photos had when it comes to depicting actual facts about the Titanic. It has some pictures in it that are def. worth looking at and Titanic fans will find they are keepers. There are some chapters on premonitions and books that were published prior to the incident, which describe the tragedy with a almost uncanny details. The author also tackles the question of whether the third class passengers were locked in, due to the fact there were no more life boats left by the time they got up on deck. All in all it contains information which most of us have already seen or heard, but it was a very short read.

When I started the book I wasn't sure whether or not I would spend the time to get through this short read, even though I enjoy feeding my fascination with Titanic. The beginning felt as though I was reading a college term paper but the tone improved as the book progressed.

The book isn't "full" of "Jack and Rose" photos. I believe the author opted to open with this method in order to emphasize the love affair a great number of people seem to have with all things Titanic related.

There aren't startling new revelations in the book but it is convenient to have information compiled in one spot. I did enjoy having the different theories of the sinking since the discovery of the Titanic remains all spelled out.

A weak point for me was also a fact purported to be truth about Bruce Ismay pocketing one of the ice warnings received by Titanic. According to my research, this is only half the story of that event, as according to Titanic-Titanic.com, the message was retrieved from Ismay later that evening by Capt. Smith and posted in the ship's chart room. I don't believe there is any irrefutable evidence that Capt. Smith allowed Bruce Ismay to have a final say in Titanic sailing decisions.

I was able to get this book at no cost when it was offered for free for a short time in March 2012. For free, or even $.99, it has some good information to share and photos as well. I can't recommend paying today's pricing of $4.97, however.
