    Very interesting and filled with obscure information. The actual pictures of its construction were incredible. Its construction was quite a feat considering how long ago it was built.

    This is a very good book that gets into depth about why the RMS Titanic was created and what made them want to build such a huge and luxurious ship. I highly recommend this book for 11th graders - young adult readers.

    This book---"Building the Titanic"--- is a great help in the writing of "The Titanic didn't need to sink!" which I am now writing. Raff.

    I am very disappointed in the editing of the book, many many typographical errors! Also, the book did not go into detail about the various construction techniques that went into building the ship. I wanted a step by step process especially in the interior construction of the cabins and public rooms, i.e. construction from the bulkhead/exterior skin, insulation, woodwork, plastering, wiring, plumbing etc.

    All of us know a bit about the voyage of the Titanic. Yet less has been published about the design and construction of the ship. This book begins with a general discussion of the North Atlantic passenger trade from its early days to show why the Titanic was the logical choice for the next ship to be built. From here it goes into the design and construction of the ship. Everything from the boilers, to the double hull are discussed. Numerous photographs show points in the construction and give you a feeling of the giant size of the vessel when men are shown standing next to the truly titanic size of the vessel.
