Here is the fascinating concluding chapter to a story that has captured imaginations for almost a century, the dramatic account of the most exciting underwater discovery of our time.
The complete and exclusive account of Ballard's exploration, from his pioneering early work to the dramatic discovery of the Titanic itself.

This is one of my favorite Titanic books. Dr. Robert Ballard explains in vivid detail about the expeditions he oversaw to finally locate the Titanic's shipwreck, once and for all. It took 73 years for the Titanic to be found after sinking, and he was the man who did it.
I'm quite amazed at the clarity with which Ballard recalls his expeditions. Every minute detail is documented, making the story lift off the pages in front of your eyes. You're not just reading through a documentary, but an intriguing story. Learn about the years that Ballard waited to locate the Titanic's shipwreck in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Discover the Titanic with him, through his own eyes, when he first saw the 1912 ship appear in front of him.
I acquired much knowledge about the types of tools and submersible vehicles that are used in deep-sea exploring. It was quite fascinating to learn about the daily processes and teamwork that is employed on such a tight schedule.
There are hundreds of pictures and diagrams that are included in this book, providing a refreshing atmosphere amongst all text knowledge you're soaking in. In addition to everything Ballard shares about his expeditions, he also includes several portions of the Titanic's history to help illustrate certain points of his discovery. Amazing book! I'll have to read it again someday.
