    " Not the book I was expecting. It was a lot more historical in nature, which would usually appeal to me, but I was looking for an underwater deep sea exploration story, not a complete history of the design of the Titanic. After finishing the book, I now see that the dives taken to the Titanic were in themselves inconclusive, but the Titanic dives compared to dives taken to the Britannic were able to "prove" a theory that the Titanic broke up on the surface, and sank to the bottom of the Atlantic. The surface break up is what lead to the Titanic sinking as quick as she did, thus giving Matsen the material neccessary to write yet another book on the Titanic. "

    " This book brought to light a very big detail of the sinking that could be added to list of why the Titanic disaster could have been prevented... yet at the same time, I felt it did alot of casting blame on the ship's designers and builders for the tremendous loss of life. I still feel like it was a horrible tragedy that could have been prevented in lots of ways now that we look back on it, but no one was truly grossly negligent or "dropped the ball" so to speak according to the standards of the day. We have to remember that there hadn't been an incident of this magnitude at sea for the previous 50+ years, and people simply weren't ready for it. It was a painful lesson for everyone to be sure, but I don't believe in all the finger pointing. "

    " I had seen the "Deep Sea Detectives" episode dealing with the Titanic searches, and loved "Shadow Divers" so I knew I had to read this book. The investigation into what happened to the Titanic was interesting, as was the history of the people involved with it's development. Highly recommend this book "

    " As a diver and a 'Titaniac' , I found that this book brought new information to light... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachelle | 1/7/2014

    " I read this book to get ready for the Titanic exhibit. Very interesting read, part historical and part technological. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn Shipman | 12/18/2013

    " Pretty good book. Definitely makes you question what really happened out there. There is no Jack/Rose love story, so don't expect that. Very factual and interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Celeste | 11/28/2013

    " Fascinating--you only think you know what happened! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meadow | 11/7/2013

    " Well written background of the main characters (builders, owners, and the Olympic-class ships) brought to a final conclusion on what really caused the Titanic to sink. (Though, without a time machine, not everyone will agree) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 10/5/2013

    " An interesting and readable account of the great disaster that argues the Titanic was a much weaker vessel than most have understood, except for the actual builders, who kept that conclusion a secret while they tried to correct design flaws in their other Olympic-class ships. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise Polanski | 4/4/2013

    " Changes your perspective on the Titanic disaster. What you know might only be what the British wanted you to know, and not the whole story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 jackie | 1/26/2013

    " After reading Shadow Divers, I was curious to see what these guys came up with this time. It was a good read. Interesting facts and opinions regarding a subject that has always intrigued us "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meaghan Clark | 11/29/2011

    " Not the best book out there on the Titanic, but I found this to be a very interesting read and a good companion to the documentaries that were aired about the particular findings this book deals with. This book truly deals with NEW information about the shipwreck. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Twinoaks | 1/30/2011

    " Fascinating to learn the actual cause of the ship's demise and the subsequent coverup by Ismay and his engineers. Excellent research by the authors and all involved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susannah | 1/3/2011

    " Been reading about the Titanic since I was a child. The writing in this was so-so, but the information was interesting. Learned some things I didn't know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shera | 10/26/2008

    " This book gives you a totally different perspective of the sinking of the Titantic. What a great read. I could not put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Winnie | 10/26/2008

    " Just borrowed it from the library. Can't wait to find out what those last secrets are.

    The best book I've read all year! The mystery has been solved once and for all. Fascinating book. I learned a lot! "
