I bought this book from a high school book order thinking that of all the Titanic reserch I had done, this would be my best book. However, the book was made for middle school kids giving the basic facts every book about Titanic kids books gives, with a few new things. I think this book does have excellent facts but the book is just a list from page to page. If you want to know everything about Titanic I suggest you just get on the web., get fifty pages about Titanic, and save your [money].

This is by far the best book I have ever come across about the night of April 15, 1912 when the Titanic sank.
This book is filled with 882 ½ facts (because the ship was 882 ½ ft. long) about the people, the ship, crew, heartwarming stories of how mothers pleaded for their sons to be allowed into life boats, how lovers said goodbye to each other, how people were refused into life boats, and how others never made it out of the ship.
There are detailed names, dates, info about the aftermath, a "whatever happened to..." page with facts about survivors, as well as great info about the discovery of the ship, exploration of the wreckage, facts about the movie directed by James Cameron, and a great glossary at the back of the book to learn about different words associated with the ship.
What I love most about this book is the heartfelt facts about the people who were on the ship, and what happened to them. If you have ever wanted to learn about The Titanic, this is THE book to buy. An Outstanding tribute to the souls loved and lost. Deserves 10 Stars.

I love to read about the Titanic, and this book satisfied my hunger for more books about it. This book provides 882 and a half questions and answers about the Titanic. It was easy to read, well written, and had many photos. This book's questions and answers were very interesting, and I learned a lot from reading this book. This is an awesome book!

I can recommend no better book for helping hook new Titanic fans! Thanks to Ken Marschall and others, this book is visually spectacular! The information is accurate, concise and presented very well, even if only in overview format. Hopefully, readers will be enticed to look deeper into what interests them. My only complaint is the author's continued use of the term "it" when referring to Titanic (ships are to be referred to with the feminine pronoun "she" and most consider it disrepectful to use "it"). Bottom line: Buy a hardcover for yourself and keep a softcover on hand to give to those you wish to introduce to Titanic!

Summary: This book has answers to almost all of your questions about the ship and the sinking, etc. Wonderful facts.

This book gives 8821/2 answers to all questions asked about Titanic: Were there any women's only rooms on it, was it really the curse of a mummy on board that made the ship sink, what did children and adults do for fun and eat in first, second and third-class? All these questions and many more are finally answered. A fact-filled book with excellent photographs. Recommend it to people of any age.
