“A lively, true-life adventure saga…The incredible story of how James Cameron willed Titanic into existence.”

Republished in time to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the catastrophic sinking of the gargantuan ocean liner, Titanic and the Making of James Cameron is a must-read for Titanic fans and for true movie buffs everywhere.
