I've received a copy of Wade Sisson's new book "Racing Through the Night," which is the story of the Titanic disaster as it was experienced by those on board the ill-fated vessel's elder sister Olympic. I've had a chance to thumb through the volume, and my examination tells me that the book is going to be a definite "must-have" for all serious Titanic researchers. The soft-cover book is 158 pages in length and contains copious footnotes along with several sections of high-quality photographs (many of which I had never seen before.) In fact, my only regret about this book (which I've already relayed to the author) is that I wasn't able to write an enthusiastic endorsement of the book for publication on its rear cover.
If you want to get a head start on reading one of the handful of quality books that will be appearing in observance of the Titanic's centenary, you can't go wrong if you'll begin your reading program with "Racing Through the Night."
