Synopsis

In this centennial edition of the definitive book on the Titanic, new findings, photos, and interviews shed light on the world's most famous marine disaster for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking. On that fatal night in 1912 the world's largest moving object disappeared beneath the waters of the North Atlantic in less than three hours. Why was the ship sailing through waters well known to be a "mass of floating ice"? Why were there too few lifeboats? Why were a third of the survivors crew members? Based on the sensational evidence of the U.S. Senate hearings, eyewitness accounts, and the results of the 1985 Woods Hole expedition that photographed the ship, this electrifying account vividly recreates the vessel's last desperate hours afloat and fully addresses the questions that have continued to haunt the tragedy of the Titanic.

Wyn Wade (1944-2006) was a clinical psychologist by training, specializing in family and adolescent counseling and neuropsychosis. He held degrees from the University of Michigan, the University of Wisconsin, and pursued postgraduate work at Michigan State University. Barbara Wade, a graduate of the University of Michigan and the University of Notre Dame, taught English and social studies in Madison, Wisconsin, before moving into advertising and public relations. John Chatterton is one of the world's most accomplished and well-known wreck divers. A past co-host of the History Channel's Deep Sea Detectives, he has been the subject of numerous National Geographic and A&E specials and recent bestsellers Shadow Divers and Titanic's Last Secrets.
