A century after the disaster, a gripping new account of the sinking of the Titanic. On the terrifying, chaotic night of April 14, 1912, while the Titanic was sinking, J. Bruce Ismay, the ship's owner, made a decision that would save his life-and end it. Ismay boarded a lifeboat meant for women and children, and within days became "The Most Talked-of Man in the World." Branded a coward, he became a flesh-and-blood embodiment of Joseph Conrad's legendary eponymous character, Lord Jim. How to Survive the Titanic interweaves numerous historical accounts and sources with insights drawn from Conrad's novels. Unlike other survivors, this pivotal figure never again spoke about the Titanic. This intriguing history offers a sympathetic yet clear-eyed explanation why-important lessons all of us need to survive the tragedies and choices of our own lives.
