    1. Fabulous! Although I know a LOT about Titanic and have developed a study unit for my students, I learned even more while reading the book. The bullet-style organizational format makes it easy and convenient to use the book as a valuable reference or reliable research companion. Loved it. Thx!


    2. I met the author of this book at a signing at the Luxor in Las Vegas. It was at the incredible Titanic exhibit there. I am a HUGE Titanic buff. I was floored by the exhibit but then very excited to meet Dr. Merideth. I had heard about him and his book but didn't own a copy yet. He was a very nice man who indulged my questions and queries for about half an hour. We discussed many of the facts that I was unsure about and he seemed so knowledgeable that I was very excited to read his book. It is we [...]


    3. The book is entitled 1912 Facts About The Titanic, and that is how many facts you'll find in this great and informative book1,912.



    4. The research done for this book was remarkably thorough and presented well. The information was quite interesting, and the book would be right at home on the bookshelf of a maritime history buff or Titanic enthusiast.


    5. SSR Book a MonthTitle: 1912 Facts About TitanicAuthor: Lee W. MeredithDate started/date completed: Nov. 28th - Dec. 17thTotal Pages: 224Rating of Book: 8 out of 10Minor character that had major importance: The Titanic’s First Officer William Murdoch played a key role in the sinking of the Titanic. He was on duty as a lookout at 11:40 pm on April 14, 1912. When he saw the iceberg, he had a split second decision to make. Should he order the ship to be turned left or right? Or should he decide t [...]



    6. Such an interesting book! The events that lead up to the sinking were amazing…so many little things that could have been avoided that ultimately ended in the loss of life. Blame could be placed on many individuals and should have been removed from others. The author makes the best point at the end, that it was ultimately complacency & the era that attributed to this tragedy. Fast read, chock full of great info. Additionally, I loved the way it was written – in fact, I wish many historica [...]


    7. This was an interesting book. However, sometimes the 1912 facts were mentioned several times so I sometimes felt like I was reading the same thing over and over again. I know that there are obviously numerous accounts of that evening but writing them several times in the book kind of got annoying. Other than that, it was a great read. I enjoy the whole storyline of the Titanic disaster and this was a great read to further educate myself on it's demise.


    8. Lee Merideth is an accomplished historian and researcher into many facets of history and he brings together all of his talent into this book. This goes far beyond how long the ship is, or how many decks, providing a greater understanding of this remarkable ship and the people who sailed on it's only voyage.


    9. As far as I can tell, this is a completely accurate fact-based retelling of the Titanic disaster. It's nothing compared to A Night To Remember, but it is very informative and well worth picking up if you're looking for a good research book.


    10. I was interested in the Titanic but this had too much information in it. It was hard to get through and at times, repetitive. It was interesting and I learned things I didn't know but there were many times I just wanted the book to end.


    11. I love learning about Titanic and I absolutely loved this book. I didn't know of its existence until I met the author, who was selling signed copies in Columbus, Ohio (at the Titanic exhibit at Cosi a couple years ago), but I'm so glad that I got to meet the author and that I bought a copy!


    12. I have read tons of books on the Titanic and this book gave me tons of facts that I had never heard before and told me facts that I've been looking for but haven't ever been able to find anywhere else. This is stunning with all of its information. A must read!


    13. I really enjoyed this book. It was really interesting and brought up a lot of facts, explained some previous myths, got into some stories, etc. For someone who has read a lot of books about the Titanic, this was one of the better ones.


    14. Ok so it probably isn't the best Titanic book out there. But it was very easy to read and had a lot of interesting information in it.


    15. A well written concise history of the ill fated ocean liner. very heavy on facts and light on stories I enjoyed reading this historical event in this format







    16. I went to a Titanic artifact exhibit and read this after to refresh my memory of more details of the sinking of the Titanic.
