Product Description

From the Author

How the book came to be written.
I started out researching a completely different book about the possibility of a prehistoric civilisation and an earlier evolutionary development of humanity than the orthodox consensus allows.

The research went far too well. I kept coming on material that was just plain impossible. The first few times I dismissed it as freaks, but after a while I had to take it seriously. I worried for months about what it meant, then eventually it struck me that the only answer was time travel by somebody from our own future.

I postponed the planned book (although I've just finished the manuscript now) and wrote Time Travel instead.

As someone who "gobbles" up anything related to timetravel/speculation/inconsistencies and so on, I was drawn to this book from the synopsis and the marketing premise that I considered (after reading) to be misleading. While the book does offer investigations into possible evidence of timetravel; it is only thrown in periodically throughout an otherwise boring read. In fact, I've read hundreds of books in the speculative nature and sadly, this is the ONLY ONE I haven't enjoyed.

Nothing excites the modern adventurer like the prospect of time travel. Prepare yourselves. Not only is time travel possible, it has already taken place.

Brennan is phenomenal. Presenting all the scientific evidence, as well as possible arguments to this evidence, he opens the eyes and excites the soul of his readers. Painting a modern and accurate picture of the space-time continuum, as well as presenting documentation and proof of actual time travel, Brennan covers all theories (from black holes to travel at the subatomic level) in a manner that both scientists and laymen can easily comprehend. Best of all, with his Program, Brennan offers his readers the opportunity to participate in their own time travel experience.

An exhilarating read, Brennan's "Time Travel" is not to be missed. Anyone who has ever dreamed of a journey through time must read this book. The doors are open.

The ideas expressed are consistent with current scientific theory and interweave with mainstream metaphysical concepts. Brennan makes you believe it's all possible. I would have given this book 5 stars except it seemed to "fizzle out" at the end and left me feeling as if there should be more to the story.

Format: Paperback
If you are familiar with Brennan's other books you will have read most of what he has included in the third part of the book. The other parts are interesting but if you know your time travel literature you will know most of it already.

The third part states it is a practical time travel method, or as Brennan calls it a 'program', But you should be aware that it requires a group of a minimum of five people, and Brennan also says they should all be strangers to each other. However, many people might find that finding four complete strangers who want to join them in a 'time travel' experiment a little difficult. Also, the method he suggests is actually a collection of effective occult practices he discusses in his other books, which really should be explained more along those lines in this book and not just stated as a 'time travel' method. If you really wanted to do it alone the exercises can be adapted, but if you are familiar with the methods for occult practices he has re-used here as a 'time travel' experiment you would not need this book for that anyway. The 'program' for 'Time travel' in the book is really a short form of/adapted quick method for those not familiar with astral work and pathworking.

If you intend to do the 'program' at the end of the book you should also be aware that doing the exercises could have unintended psychological effects on those who are not familiar with the background to the main reasons those methods are used in occult circles.

Good reading, but not what I expected 19 Oct 2004
By Heather Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the book. But because of it's technical aspect about the scientific viewpoint of time travel, I did get bogged down. But it didn't really give me any practical techniques or lessons/examples to follow to try it on my own. I had to be a part of a group, and that doesn't appeal to me.

Time Travel Fascination 17 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This Irish author is a deep thinker. He investigates not only UFOs, those saucer shaped ships from outer space, but also the ultraviolet catastrophe, speaks about photons and electrons; what are Positrons in Space and Time? Hey, you can change your location in space without destroying the universe! It's just a forwards/backwards convergence of your future and your past, which happens in the presence. Hermann Hesse said similar things, but don't ask me right now in which of his books. The difference between Hermann Hesse and Mr. Brennan: the former took it from a buddhistic viewpoint, the latter from science. More Power to Mr.Brennan! Gerborg
