Unsinkable: The Full Story of the RMS Titanic
Just before midnight on April 14, 1912, the ocean liner Titanic struck an iceberg. Less than three hours later, she lay at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, having taken with her more than 1,500 of the roughly 2,200 people on board. Even now, a century later, no other ship in history has attracted so much attention, stirred up such powerful emotion, or accumulated as many legends.
“Unsinkable” provides a fresh look at the Titanic's incredible story. Following the great ship from her conception to her fateful collision to the ambitious attempts to salvage her right up to the present day, Daniel Allen Butler draws on thirty years of research to explore the tragedy and its aftermath in remarkable depth and detail. The result is a must-read for anyone interested in the Titanic.

I was always fascinated by the Titanic. However, I was not getting into this book at all and made it to page 25. It was reading more like a textbook than anything else. Boring and way too much information that I didn't care about or really didn't need to know. Not for me. No stars. Read full review

Great book, gives everything you'd ever want to know about the sinking of the Titanic. Including the building of the ship and the inquiry afterwords. Some of the heartwrenching stories of the passengers are also related. Read full review
