Some good insight into the disaster from an eye witness. But rather lengthy at times about details that are beyond the scope of the author. Still if you're a Titanic buff you will get some value out of it. Note: no illustrations in this version contrary to what is said. Disappointing.

Insightful and a must for the Titantic buff. The first-hand account from the perspective of a survivor is riveting. However, Beesley becomes a bit "preachy" in the second half of the book, telling the reader what he feels went wrong and what should be done to correct those mistakes. But, when taken in context of the time it was written, it is a very interesting viewpoint of an actual survivor of the sinking of the Titanic.
