Product Details


“Stone’s mastery of his subject and his novel approach to this so-often-told tale will compel even readers who think they already know too much about the Titanic to take a plunge into this fresh narrative.”—Booklist, starred review

“Incisive and entertaining history… Colorful personalities, astute cultural analysis, and fascinating details about the science of shipwrecks and the mechanics of salvage operations make this a must-read for Titanic buffs.”—Publishers Weekly

“From the beginning of the narrative, Stone effectively draws readers in with his own great storytelling skills. A captivating read for Titanic and maritime enthusiasts.”—Kirkus

“The details are exquisite, the science is insightful and the personalities of the men who seek, and even claim, shipwrecks is over-the-top entertaining. A delightful read about humanity’s fascination and obsession with the sea and sea-wrecks.”—Library Journal

“Since time immemorial, shipwrecks have captivated the human imagination and continually ensnared the minds and fates of obsessives all over the world—a curious tribe of mavericks, visionaries, and nerds. In this nimble, wide-ranging work of reportage, Daniel Stone gamely chronicles a decidedly idiosyncratic subculture while bringing to the surface a wealth of bizarre stories, arresting details, and other narrative treasures from the ocean depths.”—Hampton Sides, New York Times bestselling author of In the Kingdom of Ice
“So many of us grew up living with the ghost of the Titanic without realizing that she was still alive, only in another form. Daniel Stone pushes back the murky waters of the ocean to reveal the secret second phase of a ship’s life, the one that occurs after it has disappeared from the view of all humanity, except for intrepid explorers and daring optimists. The story is beautifully written, captivating from the first line, and an engrossing reminder of the inextricable link between those of us living above the ocean, and the things lurking below it. Including the shipwrecks.”—Rachel Lance, author of In the Waves: My Quest to Solve the Mystery of a Civil War Submarine
