'Tim Maltin has done a fine job of dispelling the myths that have attached themselves to the Titanic saga since the great vessel disappeared beneath the surface of the North Atlantic in the spring of 1912. Carefully researched and meticulously detailed, this book is a worthy addition to the library of anyone who has even a passing interest in the Titanic disaster.' - George Behe, Vice President, Titanic Historical Society 1992-1996
People have an endless fascination with the Titanic, yet much of what they know today is a mixture of fact and fiction.

From physics to photographs, lawsuits to love stories, Maltin doesn't miss one tidbit surrounding its history. Heavily researched and filled with detailed descriptions, quotes from survivors, and excerpts from the official inquiries, this book is guaranteed to make readers rethink everything they thought they knew about the legendary ship and its tragic fate.
'Tim Maltin has addressed the many questions and myths that have arisen over Titanic but he has gone one further than the average author in that he has brought forth the testimony of the people who were there, coupled with the latest research to back up his work. Maltin's book is a must for any Titanic enthusiast's collection.' - Bruce Beveridge, Founder, Titanic Research and Modeling Association
'For once we have a book that addresses some of myths and popular legends that have propagated down the years and been repeated in books, articles, movies, TV documentaries, and most recently on the internet. It is well written with many references to the direct evidence presented first hand by those who were there at the formal inquiries that followed the disaster back in 1912.' - Sam Halpern, Titanic researcher and author
