Many other people have said what the book is lacking in factualdetail. The book is meant for children who usually aren't interestedin water tight bulkheads and how a steam engine works. The paintings are superbly executed by ken marshal, the leading authority on how the titanic looks. If you want to see more of his work, he has a book with many of his paintings in it called ken marshal's art of titanic. It is a great book also.

This book is a superb piece of art. For whom have little or no idea about Titanic architecture, it's a must have. The big drawing in the center of the book is truely amazing. It's also an ideal companion to have when reading testimonies by survivors, for it adds much to the feeling of being there.

Although this book was meant for kids - everyone will certainly enjoy it! I bought it for my nephews this past Christmas. (11 and 9 years old) James Cameron's film had just come out. The boys hadn't seen it, but they were interested in the disaster. When I saw this book I knew they'd love it! I honestly thought about keeping it for myself! Beautiful illustrsations and a captivating story. You really get the feel of how immense this ship was to two very young boys. It may not be exactly accurate - but it was designed as a children's book and not as a practical schematic for engineers. If you have kids who are interested in the Titanic disaster ( or if you're a history buff) I highly recommend this one!

Inside the Titanic Book Review
Frank's room is a tiny third-class cabin. Billy and his family are traveling in a luxurious suite. But both boys are thrilled to be on the first voyage of the greatest liner ever built. They can't wait to explore every deck of this fabulous new ship. Read this book and you can follow "two young passengers as they explore the Titanic from top to bottom". This book is by Ken Marshall. I liked it because it showed and told how it sank. So I hope you like Inside the Titanic.

Telling the stories of survivors & their families,HughBrewster weaves a fascinating description of life aboard thegreatest "unsinkable" ship of its time. Ken Marschall's amazing cutaway illustrations draw you in to the immense boiler rooms, endless cabins, kitchens & dining halls of this opulent & ill-fated passenger liner. Each page demands that you linger long, catching every detail, reading each description. A wonderful effort which will definitely create more lovers for the romance of this lost liner!...

Inside the Titanic tells the story of real life Titanic passengers Frankie Goldsmith, a steerage passenger, and Billy Carter, a first class passenger. It is a great way to introduce the disaster to children because it is told through their eyes, both Billy and Frank survive the tradegy, and it is easy to understand. It also has a few pages on the discovery in 1985.

This book is a well documented, superbly written account of the Titanic disaster which appeals to the younger reader. The pictures are flawlessly detailed and show the splendor and awe that was the most spectacular ship in history.

A really great book full of really detailed pictures. The story of a first class kid and a third class kid both abord the Titanic. Shows the time of things that happened. A really great book for kids of all ages.

In my opinion, Ken Marschall is one of the most talented steamship artists ever. His work on this book is in unbelievable detail. This is a MUST to any TITANIC lover's collection (adults, that means you too!)
