Summary
Best known for finding the wreck of the Titanic, Ballard has a lifetime of stories about exploring the ocean depths. Now he gets personal, telling the stories behind his most exciting discoveries-- including how a top-secret naval mission provided the opportunity for his Titanic discovery-- and opens up about his private tragedies. The years after his Titanic find brought triumph and agony: media around the world clamored for interviews, but he grappled with the death of his son and the collapse of his marriage amid academic and military career demands. Ballard also addresses his late-in-life discovery of his own dyslexia, which he now sees as a gift that has shaped his life and accomplishments
