Hi RMSTitanic emoticon

One of the best books in my opinion is Titanic Triumph and Tragedy by Eaton and Haas. It was one of my first Titanic books and even after thirteen years, I frequently refer to it.

Another book by the same authors is also quite good, entitled Titanic A Journey Through Time. Hope this helps.

HI

In my opinion it was a good choice of book Lights, unfortunately some will disagree because of the evident mistakes. Then does not all research books have mistakes just as all research does, Research by it's nature is full of mistakes as unless you where there you cannot depict it perfectly.

I am still as always against the researchers who believe they are gods and what thy say is correct

In books I would still count Walter Lords book the best. Although I have got rid of all my Titanic research and books apart from one which was given to me by a very good friend "Titanic ghosts of the abyss" The pictures are wicked (apparently near modern language today).

Sometimes I get asked by people who do not know much about Titanic to lend them a Titanic book. I always give them Titanic an illustrated history that seems to be a good book to start with.

Thats a good choice, It is a clear defines book to understand, Another good book to start with is the last log by David Brown, It may seem technical but it covers all angles and people can get a real feel of what the true story is all about.

A Night to Remember is probably a good book to start with if you want to get to know the Titanic story. It’s told more like a story rather than with dates and technical information. Do you know if any other Titanic books have been written in the same style as ANTR?

Hi Tom

ANTR was wrote of course by same author and is in the relative same style, Gracie's book was also close. Last log loosely.
