I urge anyone with a curiosity about the nature of the afterlife to dip into this highly interesting and very accessible book.
Drafer
All very important because they introduce the reader to recorded facts about death and its aftermath that make that subject one of hope and not fear.
William E. Stoney
They transform the book into a valuable volume of instruction that may help others when they are faced with their own transition.

Mike Tymn's new book on the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 combines meticulous research with a horrifying, compelling recreation of the momentous tragedy. But the best part of the book--what makes it distinct from every other book written about the Titanic--is the account of what happened to its victims, not before, but after their deaths. John Jacob Astor, reputed to be the richest man in the world, gets half a chapter, and his pathetic suffering from 1912 to 1916--as he himself recounts to the famous psychologist Carl Wickland--is gripping and extremely sobering. Looked at through the lens of W. T. Stead, another victim of the sinking, but much better prepared to face the tragedy than Astor, the world of the "dead" emerges. This world is at least as fascinating as ours, and far more fair. Stead had been dead for 10 years when he finished dictating his account through the hand of the medium Pardoe Woodman.

If you like a book that in parts reads like a novel yet at the same time introduces you to a metaphysics never guessed at by most of the world's philosopers--though the greatest of them all, Plato, was a significant exception--you should not miss this. Many readers will see their values begin to shift toward spiritual realities. These realities are too vividly told and the research behind them too strong to be dismissed. Those who do so have never seriously confronted the evidence.

Tymn is a celebrated researcher of paranormal phenomena and former newspaper reporter. I urge anyone with a curiosity about the nature of the afterlife to dip into this highly interesting and very accessible book. It will lead to further reading and, for many, a radically new sense of life's meaning and purpose.

I thought that everything known about this great tragedy has been told or written. Michael Tymn the author, has proven me wrong. This book opens up a whole new aspect of this event with interesting and fascinating facts. Certainly more than any I was aware of.

The book relates acts of bravery, cowardice and simple survivor and victims stories. One of the dead "survivors" was William Stead, a noted British journalist. He figures prominently in the events, starting with the way he faced his death and as well of the premonition he had of the disaster. His after-death and his afterlife missionary work with another victim of the sinking, grabs the reader's attention.

I find myself more than a bit skeptical of mediums, but the fact that Stead's communicated with so many after his "death" makes one wonder if there might indeed be something to all this . Distinguished personalities, among them a professor,a general and an admiral all claimed that the "dead" Stead had contacted them. Surely they did not make this up.

As the Mr. Tymn writes,"The Titanic story repeats the struggle between man's innerself and his outerself. This is a struggle many people are interested in, but prefer to avoid except in books or movies".

Transcending the Titanic Beyond Death's Door by Michael Tymn

A Review by William Stoney

Why another book about the Titanic? Yes this April 15 will be the 100th anniversary of the sinking. But wouldn't it be easier to commemorate by going to see the movie again, especially since its in 3D? Think again. Mike Tymn uses the Titanic to focus on the details of death and dying that in modern times are assiduously avoided in polite society and as much as possible, in our own thoughts. As the author notes, the book "..is an attempt to explore the more transcendental aspects of the Titanic story - those suggesting a non-mechanistic universe. The subjects include premonitions, apparitions, out-of-body experiences, telepathic communication among the living, and after-death communications." All very important because they introduce the reader to recorded facts about death and its aftermath that make that subject one of hope and not fear.

A major figure in the book and one of the most famous who died is William T Stead, a British crusading journalist whom many thought was scheduled to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for that year. He was also a spiritualist as the result of a long series of messages by automatic writing with the spirit of a woman who had once interviewed him while living. The book quotes a great many of these communications and they will certainly make you understand Stead's conversion to spiritualism and will provide answers to more questions about the afterlife than you have probably ever thought to ask. His post life communications are even more interesting and there were many.

Format: Paperback
Like most people, I've always been fascinated by the Titanic disaster. A giant ship, lights still blazing, plunges to the bottom of the sea as hundreds of desperate passengers cling to lifeboats and rafts in bitter cold water under a starry night sky. What made it all the more interesting to me was the fact that so many rich, powerful socialites met their doom that night, unable to avoid the same fate as the cooks, servants, maids and other "nobodies" who served them. With all their wealth and connections, they couldn't buy another day of life on earth. What did they think of their money and status as they faced death?

Better yet, what did they think of it all after they died?

Mike Tymn's new book explores the spiritual and moral side of the Titanic disaster. He presents in one book the many, chilling premonitions of disaster various passengers and crew experienced and recorded before they set sail. Then he offers the reader multiple, well-attested cases of passengers who perished in the tragedy but later returned in spirit to share their last moments and thoughts through trance mediums in America and Europe. Tymn knows the mediumship field well. He's a recognized expert with multiple published books and articles detailing humanity's long history of attempted - and often successful - communication with the dead. The repeated message Titanic victims share with us is that death is simply a passage into another state of being, another plane of existence, and we enter that Next World with all the mental and emotional baggage we carry to death's door. When you die, what will you be carrying?

The world's richest man, John Jacob Astor, went down with the Titanic.
