First Sentence
IN THE DAYS OF SAIL, ships took weeks, if not months, to travel between continents; and passengers were as likely to die from disease as they were to be shipwrecked or drowned. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for children July 3 2000
Format:Hardcover
My 4 1/2 year old son loved this book. The facts were very interesting. He spends a lot of time looking at each picture and remembers the facts as I have read this book to him several times. Each time through it he finds different things to keep him excited. I would say it's his favorite book right now!

2.0 out of 5 stars Childen might like it Nov. 4 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book gives the most childish facts. I guess to a young child who only began his/her interest in Titanic might find this book as a good start, otherwise it is pointless buying this book, since it gives nothing new and gives inaccurate drawings. To a more interested person, I really would not recomend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eye Witness Titanic May 6 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This wreck of the Titanic has always fasinated me since it's discovery. I have seen movies,documentries and many great books inclueding this one.The white Star Line always fasinated me also and with scuba I dove on the white star lines first disaster of April 1st 1873 the SS Atlantic for a museum in 1968. The ss Atlantic sunk off of Nova Scotia's Canada's remote coast in 60 t0 90 feet of water and I gave a lecture on our expedition at a museum in Ottawa in 1969.This book showed me things a normal diver could never reach or imagine as this Titanic replaced the SS Atlantic sinking as the world's worst in 1912.In the Titanics case God Has mercy on who he chooses. May the Lost in both sunkings rest in peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written and Factual March 14 2010
By Tamela Mccann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I'm a Titanic buff, but it had been a while since I'd picked up a book on the subject. When I saw this one in our school's library, I decided just to flip through it to see what information it held. Imagine my surprise and delight when I realized that it was chock full of photos, information, and fun facts; I immediately checked it out and brought it home to peruse at a more leisurely pace and I'm so glad I did.

There is really nothing terribly new in the pages of this Eyewitness book, but it presents the story of the Titanic from its inception to its rediscovery with lots of detail so that anyone wanting to know more about the tragedy would come away enlightened. I absolutely loved the photos (a few of which I didn't recall having ever seen before), and I loved how many of the people so well known (and even unknown) were brought to life in these pages. Every piece of information I read had its basis in fact, and I was pleased to see that there was even mention of the debate over whether or not the debris field should be disturbed. This book gives a good overall look at the great ship and its demise without shying away from the hard stuff (descriptions even include the recovery of bodies), and it reads in such a way that people of all ages should be able to glean information in a very entertaining way. Highly recommended for readers of all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent and informative March 30 2007

I bought this book for my daughter for her birthday and she absolutely loved it. She is a relatively new reader and she found it easy to understand. I enjoyed reading it too. I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in the Titanic, who doesn't want to get too technical but still is interested in the history of the great ship.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative July 3 2011
By M. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great "catch all" book for those learning about the Titanic. I previously borrowed this book from the library, my family couldn't get enough of it. Apparently other families couldn't either, I was never able to renew it. So, I figured enough waiting, let's buy it! My cover is not like the cover pictured though. Easy to read, easy to understand. A pleaser for the whole family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eyewitness Titanic Book Jan. 22 2012
By Forever Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book was a Christmas gift to my 9yr.old grandson who wanted to know everything about the Titanic. He has several other books on this subject but this book seems to be most informative with many illustrations & actual photos. This book is appropriate for a good elementary reader to adult. Amazon gave a good sample of what the book was like so it was easy to make my decesion. Phillip loved the book!
