Digest of Testimony

This book gives the key testimony from the U.S. Senate Hearings.  I started to read this book then stopped when I picked up "Titanic Disaster", which is the entire testimony.  This book is an affordable option to see what went on during the hearings.  Often dry reading, but in some instances funny because of the questions that were asked.
