    One Hundred year mark since the Titantic

    As we approach the centennial mark of the sinking of the Titanic on April 16 the book Titanic: The Unfolding Story by Carol King and Richard Havers captures the details like no other publication I have read.
    What makes Titanic: The Unfolding Story by Carol King and Richard Havers a good addition to any library is that it is a diary of a sort from first hand accounts, newspaper clippings from the Daily Mirror, and a showcase of artifacts that give depth to this story.
    I learned so many new things when reading this book and was really taken aback of the magnitude of this unsettling disaster. 1,513 perished in this unsinkable 45,000 ton ship with only 706 survivors.
    Another valuable lesson to learn from this work is to think wow, how the world has dramatically changed in a one hundred years. An age when there was no air travel, no internet, no instant communications. How the information disseminated through the press and a time when you could not watch it live with your own eyes.
    Another good aspect of this book is that it takes the reader past the event and brings everyone up to date on what happen after the sinking.
