Overview

Here is a survivor's vivid account of the greatest maritime disaster in history. The information contained in Gracie's account is available from no other source. He provides details of those final moments, including names of passengers pulled from the ocean and of those men who, in a panic, jumped into lifeboats as they were being lowered, causing injury and further danger to life. Walter Lord, author of A Night to Remember, comments that Gracie's book—written shortly before he died from the exposure he suffered on that night—is "invaluable for chasing down who went in what boat," and calls Gracie "an indefatigable detective."

Great selection for an online bookstore. Both the site online and the store are places that I could spend a lot of time and money (if I had it).

An interesting, if somewhat tedious, account of the sinking of the Titanic. Two things stand out: 1) the calm with which the overwhelming majority of the men faced death. 2) the amazing lack of preparedness.Also interesting is the author's conclusions regarding failings and mistakes. In our era, one apologizes for one's moral failings. Archibald Gracie is very much of the opinion that one's mistakes (though without any hint of moral failing) also are one's complete responsibility. The owners of the Titanic believed it unsinkable. They were wrong. They are completely responsible for the death of all the men/women who perished. The fact that there was no malice, no greed, etc., does not mitigate the responsibility in the least. I associate that with the Japanese, not with Americans.

I couldn't finish this book. I absolutely LOVE non-fiction books and reading about real life events, but this book was awful! It is very rare for me to not finish something I started, but after 100 pages of this, I couldn't do it. It was very repetitive and boring.

A must read for anyone interested in a first hand account of the sinking. Goes into emotional and spiritual accounts. Mr Gracie describes his descent with the Titanic and his miraculous survival. Best Titanic acciunt I have ever read.

The titanic is so cool! I feel so bad for those who didn't survive. The titanic is an inspiring story. I also totally recommend the movie with leonardo de caprio or whatever his name is and anyway i am a total die-hard fan of his. Awesome book.
