In this book, Dr. Robert Ballard explains how he located the Titanic's shipwreck 73 years after it sank. The story of the Titanic is told: main facts about the ship, the voyage, the sinking, etc. Ballard then goes on to tell about his expeditions, and the condition of the ship and debris as it was found. The underwater photos that Ballard obtained are equally informative.
"Exploring the Titanic" is actually just a reduced version of Ballard's bestseller, "The Discovery of the Titanic". I would recommend "Exploring the Titanic" if you just want to learn basic facts, or for young readers. On the other hand, "The Discovery of the Titanic" contains all the same information and much, much more (especially for advanced Titanic enthusiasts).

Publishers Weekly, 1988-09-30 The focus of this book is the recent recovery of the most famous shipwreck of this century. Taller than the Empire State or any building of her day, the Titanic carried three anchors (one weighing 15 tons), had three million rivets and was nicknamed ``The Millionaire's Special.'' Details of her building and maiden voyage are accompanied by photographs and drawings of the ship's many staterooms, ballrooms, lounges, dining rooms, the swimming pool and the huge glass dome over its grand, curving, wrought-iron stairway. All the ship needed was more lifeboats. The night of April 14, 1912, when the ship slowly sank after hitting an iceberg, is retold in equal detail. Then Ballard narrates the years of search using modern technology, which located the ship in 1986 at a depth of 12,690 feet, more than two miles down. Graphs, drawings, sketches, photos and text combine for an excellent book on the famous disaster. Ages 8-12. (Oct . )
