I wanted to know more about QE and as an ocean liner enthusiast I think that this book is just perfect. The text is very rich, informed and enthralling and there are many high quality pictures. It will soon find a suitable place among my other maritime books.
... but not exceptional. Its main advantage is the huge amount of original footages from the period but the soundtrack and the narrating voice are not particularly compelling, and I even noticed a couple of historical mistakes. Anyway it still works as an introduction to the theme.
