So if you were going to read one book on the Titanic, which one would it be?

With the anniversary coming up I'm curious to know some more about the Titanic, so which would be the best book to read? I've already got a basic familiarity with the story so I'm looking for something in depth (ie I've watched Titanic, the Cameron movie, and I saw A Night To Remember years ago, I've probably seen a couple of documentaries over the years and I'm watching (well the first episode so far) the Titanic television drama series that is currently on ITV) A bit of googling suggests A Night To Remember is the classic book, but it was written a while ago and I was wondering if anything better had been written since. Prefer non-fiction and reasonably easy to obtain in the UK.
