    This short book is a collection of 101 seemingly random bits of trivia about the Titanic. Many of them were things I’d known before, but a few were new to me. It’s quick and engaging, and it’s likely to appeal to children. It paints a very broad picture of many different aspects of the ship and her fatal voyage. However, I was disturbed to find that some of their amazing “facts” were wrong. A few of their claims were only ever legends that have been contradicted and never substantiated, and a fe This short book is a collection of 101 seemingly random bits of trivia about the Titanic. Many of them were things I’d known before, but a few were new to me. It’s quick and engaging, and it’s likely to appeal to children. It paints a very broad picture of many different aspects of the ship and her fatal voyage. However, I was disturbed to find that some of their amazing “facts” were wrong. A few of their claims were only ever legends that have been contradicted and never substantiated, and a few of this book’s statements have been disproved. This troubles me because it casts doubt on the rest of their facts. How can I trust them in some points, knowing that they were inaccurate in others? I can also find no reason for their errors. The book is recent enough that there was already a tremendous amount of scholarship on Titanic; they should have been able to do research without needing to break any new ground. The whole book is interesting, of course, and it might inspire children to read more about the doomed ocean liner. But while much of this is correct, some of it is sloppy.

    Far from amazing, 101 Amazing Facts About the Titanic breaks down the Titanic Disaster into a list of factoids. Divided into categories such as General Facts, Facts and Figures, and Interesting Facts, the authors list tidbits of trivia; some of which are questionable as “facts.” There’s no real introduction or context given to the information, other than a little commentary in how the facts are presented. Some of the information is interesting, but most of it is just surface level stuff; number Far from amazing, 101 Amazing Facts About the Titanic breaks down the Titanic Disaster into a list of factoids. Divided into categories such as General Facts, Facts and Figures, and Interesting Facts, the authors list tidbits of trivia; some of which are questionable as “facts.” There’s no real introduction or context given to the information, other than a little commentary in how the facts are presented. Some of the information is interesting, but most of it is just surface level stuff; number of lifeboats, cost of a ticket, time of the sinking, etc. 101 Amazing Facts About the Titanic is a barebones guide that’s not all that engaging or insightful.

    This book packs a lot of information in a few pages. A few of the statements presented as facts are likely not true, but all are interesting, and may entice readers to do further research into the shipwreck. The audio reader will certainly get your attention, and his enthusiasm for what he is narrating rivals any announcer I’ve ever heard. You have to hear it to believe it!

    As with other books in this collection, 101 Amazing Facts About the Titanic gives a quick overview of the history of the Titanic. It is a fast read but loaded with interesting facts. Even though I have read a couple of books and seen movies on this topic, I still learned a few new things. This is a great book for anyone interested in the tragedy of the Titanic but is short on time.
