What if your spiritual journey took you back to a voyage aboard the RMS Titanic?
That’s the question faced by Hollywood documentary producer Paul Amirault, who underwent hypnotic past-life regression as part of a research assignment and was unexpectedly transported to a dark night in 1912. There, in the freezing waters of the North Atlantic, he found himself cowering in fear before a massive wall of black steel…as the sinking White Star Liner loomed threateningly over his head.
This bone-chilling experience sparked a 12-year spiritual odyssey for Amirault, who ultimately concluded his “past-life memories” coincided with those of Titanic’s enigmatic First Marconi Officer John ("Jack") Phillips—the man who sent the famous SOS—but who also died with the blood of at least one of Titanic’s victims on his hands.
In his gripping new book, Amirault shares both his, and Phillips,' stories; it's an unforgettable tale of obsession, intertwining lives, and ultimately, the healing power of understanding and love.
Praise for The Man Who Sent the SOS
"A far more revealing and thought-provoking blend of genres than one might expect from a tale of events affecting the sinking of the great ship...From the Titanic's trappings and physical features (including the Marconigraph and hydraulic tube) to past-life regressions, hypnotherapists, questions of belief and reality, and a startling journey backwards in time, The Man Who Sent the SOS will sail beyond new age audiences to intrigue readers of Titanic history, memoirs, and scientific and historical investigations. It's an amazing journey that ultimately comes full circle…Highly recommended reading.” D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Knowing that Paul Amirault’s book was part memoir and part history lesson, I was eager to get started. I’ve been fascinated with the Titanic for a long time, but I was not prepared for Amirault’s journey. The story is told from both Paul’s and Jack’s view points, making it equally gripping from both sides. It read like a really good novel and I found I could not put it down. I could only imagine what Paul must have felt whenever something new was revealed to him; the fear that must have coursed through him when he realized Jack had very little chance of surviving on that cold night. I’ve experienced past life regression and am a believer, but never took it to the extent our author has. I’m fascinated with the process of learning who you were in a previous life and Paul’s book has convinced me that I need to undergo a few more sessions. This is not a book about religion, nor is it about some crazy new-age theory – this is a book that chronicles one man’s journey into his past and allows him to open up to the reality that he has traveled through life prior to becoming Paul. Paul’s continuing research to learn more about Jack and his eventual demise is to be admired; it could not have been an easy one. I loved this book and will be recommending it to everyone I know. Even if you are not a believer, the story is still well-worth reading.
