About the Author:

Tim Maltin has been studying the Titanic for 25 years. He is working on his magnum opus, which will be published in 2012, which will be the definitive account of what actually happened on that fateful night. Tim works in London and lives in Wiltshire Max Ellis, originally trained as a precision engineer, is a professional illustrator based in London. He is the winner of the British Illustration (AOI) award for humour and his clients include Advertising Age, Maxim, and Wired Magazine.

Nicholas Wade is the grandson of Titanic survivor Lawrence Beesley and the author of three Penguin books, including A Troublesome Inheritance.

Review:

"With its detailed stories from survivors of the disaster, Titanic, First Accounts is hugely engaging and adroitly debunks some of the event's great myths. ("Nearer, My God, to Thee" wasn't actually the last song played by the ship's band.) The eyewitness testimonies are equal parts illuminating and haunting, revealing intimate conversations with surviving passengers who didn't fully grasp the scope of the unfolding devastation until it was too late." — Entertainment Weekly
