"The Costa Concordia Disaster: A Tragedy of Titanic Proportions" by Edward Jones, the original title is now listed as "Reckless Abandon?" This book seems to have been written more by a reporter than by an author. It is a chronicle of news articles and photos taken directly from news sources (internet; newspapers; etc.). There are no individual tales of survival/tragedy from any passenger's point of view. There is a definite villain but no specific hero. On my kindle ereader, there were approx 9 to 10 blank pages under the heading Timeline of Events and about 5 blank pages under a chart of cruise ship trends. They just don't show up at all. On my android, I did see these pages but they really are just repetitive info from the text. On my android the photos were in color and there were some nice pictures of the Costa Concordia "before" taken from ship brochures and a few good "after" photos that were collected from various news sources. The text repeats itself throughout. I think this was attempt at making a quick dollar.
I purchased it because I had missed a lot when the news came out. If you just want to add to your sources of information, this might be good for you. As far as what happened to the 17 who died... who were they... what about the 17 missing... it doesn't speak to any of that. Many questions still unanswered as of the publication of this book.
