With the blockbuster successes of James Cameron's Titanic, its best-selling companion book, and the Broadway musical of the same name, it's clear people have an insatiable appetite for all things Titanic. This fascinating work tells newcomers all about the ship-from its inception, to its building, to the media hype surrounding its fatal maiden voyage, to the passengers aboard, to an up-to-date explanation of how it is believed the iceberg crash caused the ship to sink, to the chaos that ensued, to survivors' stories, and more. This thorough retrospective also contains information on recent underwater recoveries, quotes from survivors, ample illustrative material, and even insights into the Titanic's impact on contemporary pop culture.

Even if you aren't a Titanic know-it all this book will give 'from the horse's mouth' information (plus some cool little known facts)on the most famous ship ever to sail. The book covers everything from it being built, to being found on the ocean floor, to the block buster movies on it. This book really lives up to its name The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Titanic.
