Ken Marschall is a maritime artist and the illustrator of The Discovery of the Titanic and The Discovery of the Bismarck. He lives in Redondo Beach, California. Robert D. Ballard is an explorer and leading marine geologist who helps develop new underwater exploration technology. He discovered the sunken Titanic and Bismarck ships. He is the author of many books about his discoveries, including The Discovery of the Titanic, Finding the Titanic, and Graveyards of the Pacific. He lives in Mystic, Connecticut.

Robert Ballard was born in Wichita, Kansas, in 1942, and was educated at the University of California at Santa Barbara, the University . Ballard is perhaps best known to the general public in connection to the luxury liner Titanic.

Robert Ballard was born in Wichita, Kansas, in 1942, and was educated at the University of California at Santa Barbara, the University of Hawaii, the University of Southern California, and the University of Rhode Island, where he received his P. Part explorer, part geologist, part oceanographer, and part marine engineer, Ballard has worked at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Falmouth, Massachusetts, since 1969.

Dry and monotonous, The Discovery of the Titanic recounts the quest of oceanographer Dr. Robert Ballard to find the elusive .

There are so many books that have been written about the Titanic, but for readability and information I consider this one of the best. Dry and monotonous, The Discovery of the Titanic recounts the quest of oceanographer Dr. Titanic, which sank in the North Atlantic on April 15, 1912.

Reading Robert Ballard's book about the discovery of the Titanic is like reading . Those glossy paintings, done by Ken Marschall, are incredible.

Reading Robert Ballard's book about the discovery of the Titanic is like reading Christopher Columbus's book about the discovery of America (supposing he wrote one). Ballard organized the effort to find the wreck. They are so well done, you might mistake them for photos. Since Ballard is writing about his own events, this book is a primary source and does not require footnotes and bibliography.

Dr Robert Ballard will forever remain the man who found the Titanic. It is not for me to inform readers of the story of the Titanic. In so doing, he became the world's most famous ocean explorer who found the world's most famous ship. Almost everyone grew up knowing something about that ship - even if the finer points of information they thought they knew were inaccurate

WARNING!! My paperback edition (Warner Books, October 1995) fell apart. I received it from amazon, and the photo pages were falling out even before I started reading. I do not know why. As I write this, none of the other 28 reviewers note this trouble; so maybe I got a fluke. You could buy an old, used hardcover edition to be sure that your book does not fall apart, but my paperback's Epilog has an update of new information through 1995. If you buy the paperback and it falls apart, try piecing it together with clear, glossy packaging tape. That worked well for me.

Looking for a good account of the Titanic incident? Do NOT get this book. Get Walter Lord's "A Night to Remember" together with his "The Night Lives On." Or get the newer book, "Titanic," by W.B. Bartlett. A good, thorough account is gotten either way.

Looking for a brief account of the Titanic incident that comes with an in-depth account of the discovery of the wreck? Look no further. THE book to get is the one I am reviewing right here. Reading Robert Ballard's book about the discovery of the Titanic is like reading Christopher Columbus's book about the discovery of America (supposing he wrote one). Ballard organized the effort to find the wreck. He also participated in the development of equipment to search for it and to explore it. With this book you get historical and scientific information from the primary source.

Videos of the Titanic wreck have been seen for years. They are pretty much like the beginning sequence in James Cameron's movie. To me, they seem mostly barren and boring. But when Ballard made the two series of dives described in this book, in 1985 and 1986--before tomb raiders cleared away many artifacts--the site had much life. Here's a passage from the book:

"Thousands upon thousands of artifacts littered the rolling fields of sediment, many of them perfectly preserved. The entrails of the Titanic spilled across the ocean floor in seemingly endless quantity."

I like to immerse myself into my reading, to vicariously BE who I am reading about. This book allows that. At the historical moment when Ballard and his team discovered the Titanic, I also discovered it. I felt their elation. Then I understood that Ballard's struggle with administrators at Wood's Hole Oceanographic Institution was justified. He had been ordered to terminate his quest for the Titanic. It was unscientific. Now, as the Titanic was discovered, I felt the full meaning of discovery. I understood that even if it was a discovery of a man-made object, it was still discovery. It WAS science!

The prose is easy to read and properly written. Well, I counted only three instances of missed proofreading. It has moments of suspense, as when I was on the edge of my seat hoping that a competitor of Ballard would not discover the Titanic first. Later I was on the edge of my seat again, hoping that Ballard and his crew would find the tiny Titanic in the immensity of the Atlantic before they depleted their allotted time and funds.

Glossy black-and-white photos, glossy colored photos, glossy colored paintings--the book gives a good selection of these. To accompany the narration, you also get a good number of printed photos. Those glossy paintings, done by Ken Marschall, are incredible. They are so well done, you might mistake them for photos.

Since Ballard is writing about his own events, this book is a primary source and does not require footnotes and bibliography. Except when he gives his account of the Titanic incident. Though I have read enough on that matter to trust his accuracy, maybe you have not. But as I noted above, if you are looking for that information, this is the wrong book. Ballard does cite his sources for all photos and illustrations.

Even in our age of digital electronics, good reading deserves our time. If you are looking for something to break your children away from their game consoles, try "The Discovery of the Titanic."

Very detailed account and a well written history of both the Titanic and Dr. Robert Ballard's career. A great read.

This book describes the discovery of the Titanic in a perfect way. Besides telling the sad story of her maiden voyage, that ended so tragically, Dr. Ballard describes his own struggle to complete his long time wish to find Titanic. He talks about troubles raising funds, the tragedy of almost losing the discovery to another expedition and the very exhaustive and mostly boring search. But also about the joy of finally finding the wreck and his emotions during all of this. All this is told from a integer point of view, also crediting the other people for their part in the discovery. The book includes many photographs and two nice full-color foldouts of the wreck. This new edition also includes a chapter in which Dr. Ballard comments on more recent visits, conducted by others, to the Titanic and his views on the (commercial) salvaging of Titanic wreckage.
