Peculiar? Yes, indeed. These stories are told in bits and pieces, with aspects of the story told from every possible angle. The bits are spread over one or two pages of this very small (4.25"x 6.25") hardback book with the pages put together in seeming random order. For example, with the Titanic, one bit is a list of the passengers who were supposed to make the trip (but didn½t, for one reason or another). Another bit might be a list of the vast amount of refrigerated food on board. Other bits? Various reasons that ships sink. Then, a chronological notation of when the ship was notified of ice ahead. All those bits are interestingly woven together with graphic design and illustration bits, as well. Take all the bits together and voila! you have a comprehensive and engaging history. I½m willing to bet that it½s much more memorable this way, too. There½s something very appealing about the small little book format which fits in a pocket, purse or backpack easily. 190 pgs, hb. ~ Janice
