No other ship, nor maritime tragedy, holds more fascination than RMS Titanic―at the time of her launch, the world's largest moving man-made object. Ninety years after the most famous sinking of all time, two of the world's foremost authorities present this popular account of the sea's best-known disaster. Myth and legend have long been part of the story. The authors explore many of the misconceptions that have developed over the years concerning the ship, the people and the sinking, and give the most likely explanations based on present-day research and knowledge. The whole story is expertly summarized - from building and launching, to a fascinating account of the remarkable discovery of the wreck, two-and-a-half miles down, by unmanned submersible. New to this edition is coverage of the subsequent crewed dives including the authors' own photographic visit to the site, and the artifact recovery expeditions. It all adds up to a book that will appeal to general reader and dedicated Titanic expert alike.

"Titanic: Destination Disaster" by Jack Eaton & Charles Haas is a book that covers the disaster from many angles, and in doing so brings the story into the present day (well, 1996, that is). The book starts out with an overview of the maiden voyage and sinking. The subsequent chapters then cover the story in a more-or-less chronological narrative, starting out with the construction at H&W and finishing with the London exhibition of items recovered during the 1987 & 1993 expeditions to the wreck. The book focuses on presenting new facts and tidbits to the reader, rather than a full examination of everything related to the ship. As someone who has read a lot of stuff that is out there on the ship, I was pleased with the amount of new information (for the time) contained within the books pages. Unfortunately, there are quite a few errors in the sections concerning the sinking, and in the sections related to the Californian. The book really hits its stride when it is discussing post-disaster matters.

There is a pretty good selection of images in this book, many of which are quite rare. The value of the photographs in this book comes from the subjects they depict, and not necessarily their quality. There is a color section around the middle of the book with period illustrations of some of the interiors, among other things.

All in all, this book comes as recommended, despite some of its problems.

The best book about the Titanic. Met Mr.Easton and was thrilled when he not only autographed it but since that earlier copy that I had (before Titanic had been found) he edited the book for me in the margin. It has been a tresure ever since. I also bought this edition, the newer one,too.

This is probably my favorite short book on the Titanic. It may not have all the material available elsewhere, but for a pretty quick read, it is about as good as they come. Those who like to curl up and read history books should have a great time here.

Authors Eaton and Haas have written several Titanic books, and in most they have skipped over the sinking itself and concentrated on other aspects of the disaster. Here the sinking is the focus. The 1912 disaster unfolds for the reader. A wonderful set of illustrations complements the text as well.

I have studied TITANIC most of life and before the movie, TITANIC, It was hard to find TITANIC books. This one and Don Lynch's TITANIC AN ILLUSTRATED history were the best out. This is like a dictonary. It has the most informaition of all TITANIC books. I would recomend this book to anyone. It is a great book for the begginer for its info and great price. BUY THIS BOOK!

This is one of my my personal favorite Titanic books. I am a Titanic buff and am hungry for facts, and, to say the least, am now full. This book has from the Titanic gross tonnage to how much money Col. John Jacob Astor had in his pocket when his body was found.
This is a must for any Titanic Library, and is a great companion to Titanic: Triumph and Tragedy. It has a timeline of the ship, the dimension, the WHOLE story (it was reprinted in 1998), and CRAMMED cover to cover with facts.
I was disappointed to see, however, that it did not include the complete names of many people. Anyway, the good eradicates the bad, so I think any one who is even mildly interested in the Titanic should waste no time and get this book. Now.

I must agree with some other reviewees that this book is simply chock a block full of Titanic info. The style of writing is fast paced and very very intriguing. You can sit there for hours reading and not realize time flies. A fully succinct history of Titanic lore from her construction, to ill fated maiden voyage, to sinking, discovery, and preservation of artifacts. Its all there! If you are new on the Titanic bandwagon, and want to start off on the right foot. Get this book!

This volume is a cornerstone of any Titanic collection. Those who wish to explore the innumerable 'what ifs' of the disaster will be better off elsewhere, but there isn't a more dispassionate, detailed and vivid recounting of the Titanic's construction, voyage and demise. Crammed with facts, the text is brought alive by page after page of very evocative pictures. The authors tell the story very straight and avoid much of the lurid speculation common to others, but for a great read that puts you right on the great liner, this book serves well.
This is the 4th book that I bought about the Titanic. I thought it had alot of wonderful information about the sinking and the aftermath of this tragedy.
