On thenight of April 14, 1912, while the Titanic was sinking, Bruce J. Ismay, the ship's owner, made a decision that would save his life. Ismay boarded a lifeboat meant for women and children. Branded a coward, he became a flesh-and-blood embodiment of Joseph Conrad's legendary 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 spoke about the Titanic.

J. Bruce Ismay is often tagged as a villain. In How to Survive the Titanic, he comes across more as one of Edward Gorey's doleful characters. Robin Sach's voice gives the story some dignity.
