On the whole, this was a very good book about the disaster. It was sort of the “sound bite” approach to the Titanic, covering a wide range of subjects, although none of them in great detail. (Not surprising, though, as this series is meant to be a more general introduction to the topic in question). There were several little tidbits I’d not read before, including a few that may come in handy in the writing of my NaNovel this year. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is just starting out learning about the Titanic, and even if you’ve done a lot of prior reading on the subject, you’ll probably learn at least a few new things. My only gripe is that in some cases, they presented a few of the more common myths as fact, or worded things in a more sensational way that didn’t necessarily convey the whole story of what happened. I can’t think of any examples right now, but since I didn’t come across anything I know to be blatantly untrue, it wasn’t too big of a deal for me. ( )
