Through 50 concise, highly visual chapters, the volumes in the 50 Things You Should Know About series offer a distinct narrative on a variety of topics, each organized thematically. Titanic discusses ocean liners and the people who traveled on them (from immigrants to vacationers) before delving into the specifics of the Titanic's construction and technology, ill-fated maiden voyage, and legacy, with many of the chapters devoted to the lives and activities of the passengers and crew. The layout, photo-illustrated and containing diagrams and eye-catching text boxes, is bright and dynamic, and each volume is complete with an ending glossary, while Titanic also contain a "Who's Who" of notable figures.

The largest ocean liner of her time, Titanic was hailed as the ultimate in luxury travel, with grand dining halls and the latest technology, including an onboard telephone system. She set off on her maiden voyage on 10 April 1912 with more than 2,000 people on board. Just four days later, the ship struck an iceberg off the coast of Canada, and the unthinkable happened: Titanic sank. Find out what caused more than 1,000 people to drown and why the ship was so woefully ill-equipped for such a disaster. Through eyewitness accounts and from evidence found in the wreck, Titanic's fateful voyage has been meticulously pieced together to tell a riveting story of ambition, arrogance and folly.
