Hi all,

I just picked up a copy of this book recently after seeing it listed on Titanicbooksite.com. The site says it is the definitive history of the Harland and Wolff Shipyards. I was just wondering if anyone here has read this book and if so, what they thought of it.

It's about as exciting as reading a balance sheet.

Fans would wish it had a lot more about the ships H & W built and the technology involved. However, it's a valuable resource.

You are lucky to have a copy. I have to go to a library to consult it. I hope it didn't cost an arm and a leg!

Got it from amazon.com for $175 plus shipping. Plus it is signed by both authors and the dust jacket is in a protective mylar sleeve. I think I got a steal of a deal on it. I have seen it listed on used book sites for as much as $600.
