Couldn’t put this down! Loved the film Titanic and it was so interesting to read this book and hear the story from another perspective. The author obviously did her homework on Captain Smiths background. He was definately under pressure from his company to perform – then produce superior results again and again. Something which all modern executives can identify with. I finished this book with huge sympathy and sadness for Captain Smith and his family. He has been much maligned for far too long and maybe this excellent book will help to restore his previously unblemished reputation. Well done, Ann Victoria Roberts – loved it!
