Product Description

From the Author

You only THINK you know how the story ends!
I'm so glad you've 'come aboard' to take a look at I Built the Titanic: Past Life Memories of a Master Shipbuilder. This book has a two-fold dedication.

First, I dedicate it to the memory of Thomas Andrews, Titanic's builder. He took great pains to build a safe ship, but was over-ruled at every step of the way by the White Star Line. I hope to clear his name of any possible blame for the Titanic disaster.

Next, and more and of more importance, I dedicate my book to you readers who may be experiencing recollections or double memories of a past life. No. You're not crazy. I have seen first hand, that as modern psychology progresses, it is giving serious attention to present life emotional issues, that may have a past life connection. If you believe in reincarnation or not, it doesn't matter. By putting I Built the Titanic into your shopping cart, you are guaranteed to hear a gripping first-person account of one man's futile fight against politics, arrogance and greed. You will learn of a man's love for his wife and child, and of his devotion to a mistress made of cold, hard steel.

As I said earlier, you only THINK you know how this story ends. There is much more to be told about Titanic before and after her maiden voyage, that only the man who built her can tell.

"I Built The Titanic" is an emotional rollercoaster ride through Mr. Thomas Andrews' life. Spanning his childhood, through the fateful night of April 15, 1912, this wonderfully read, captivating audio-book is a must have for all Titanic historians and fans. Laced with humor (Helen Andrews was quite the spitfire!) and drama, "I Built The Titanic" by William Barnes alternately makes me laugh and cry when I think of it. Tommie Andrews' voice still echoes in my head: "My ship! My beautiful ship! She's goin' down and I can't save her."
REMARKABLE!

I don't believe in reincarnation, but this wonderful book leaves me wondering, maybe... Mr. Barnes' account fills in many of the details that history seems to have left out. I realize now how hard Thomas Andrews worked to build Titanic and Olympic with proper safeguards and enough lifeboats. Knowing that the Mersey Commission blamed him pothumously for poor design, despite the fact that he was overruled on every safeguard issue by White Star, makes me empathize with a soul so troubled, that it must come back to tell the real truth. The emotion in Mr. Barnes/Thomas Andrews' voice in the regression clips is sincere and poignant. I don't think an actor could do that. This is why I believe Mr. Barnes. This is why I'm left wondering about reincarnation. But whether he was reincarnated or not, Mr. Barnes' courageous retelling of this story,should help the spirit of Thomas Andrews find rest.

"I Built The Titanic" by William Barnes is a wonderful audio-book. Interlaced into the text are clips from Mr. Barnes' past-life regression sessions where he 'becomes' Thomas Andrews. It's amazing and comforting at the same time to hear the builder of Titanic speak out after 87 years of silence. He loved his wife and daughter so much and planned to take a vacation after Titanic. No one could have known that Titanic's maiden voyage would also be his last.
What I found particularily interesting was the 'death' of Thomas Andrews--something that no one would know the details of except the man himself. These scenes are truly heart-breaking. "I Built The Titanic" is a wonderfully moving, captivating book that I know I'll treasure forever.

This poignant and historically accurate tale that has emerged through the author's detailed recollections is astounding. In his incarnation as the master shipbuilder, his name was Thomas Andrews, a man of great integrity and rare character. It is a truly fascinating story, told with adeptness and truthfulness.The story is getting worldwide attention and lots of sincere praise from the reincarnation experts. In any case, if one is to believe Tommie's story -- and, after hearing these amazing recordings, there's little room for doubt -- that Tommie designed a masterful ship; it was greed and politics that sank the Titanic.

At last-what no film or book written from a nineties perspective can ever hope to offer. Thomas Andrews, my own especial Titanic hero speaks for himself and confirms my suspicions that more was covered up than revealed at the enquiries. Wonderful, moving, the final scenes had me in tears. Will be replayed and replayed by me. A fantastic presentation and a convincing case for reincarnation. This must be the Titanic publication of the year. As well as the historical details, some unknown to me before, it is a beautiful loving memorial to a wonderful man-one who out of all that multitude deserved to be saved,Thomas Andrews.

This audiobook is truly absorbing and captivating. The first time I listened to it, I was doing some household chores and put it on as background "noise". But I soon realized that I had to stop what I was doing and replay the entire story from its very beginning. It really makes you feel like you are there, especially at the moment of Thomas Andrews' death and the sinking of the ship. I highly recommend the book to any Titanic enthusiast as well as anyone interested in a well-narrated story.

I don't believe in reincarnation--at least I didn't until I listened to this book. Mr. Barnes makes a convincing case for past life experience. Putting the regression with the narration made it seem like I was hearing the Titanic story right from 1912.
Even if you don't believe in reincarnation, you'll find this book to be a well-told tale with all the elements of good drama. I LOVED it. I couldn't stop listening. I was sorry when the story ended. That's how much I liked it.
