More than 100 years have gone by since the Titanic sank. The perfect combination of a historical reference and a gripping thriller, this book provides an accurate and up-to-date account of every aspect of the Titanic saga, from its inception and construction to its more recent discovery and its impact on society and culture. The informal style of this book provides the factual information, including little-known facts, while also appealing to even the most casual reader. An attempt is made to create an emotional connection between the reader and the story that has captured the hearts and minds of generations, and to remind us all that the story of Titanic is about much more than facts - it's about real lives - lives that were forever changed on that chilling April night. The author also examines what has changed since Titanic was built and speaks to the question of whether a similar disaster could ever happen again. This book has been enhanced with special content, exclusively for Apple iBooks users. Enjoy original photographs, period music, audio of interviews with Titanic survivors, author commentaries, web links to deck plans, and much more.
