"Corridors in the Sky: Revelations of a New York 9/11 Air Traffic Controller" is an insider’s account of one of the most grievous tragedies in history: 9/11. As an FAA Air Traffic Controller, Robert S. Totman has the uncanny ability to direct air traffic across New York Center Airspace. But his life would be altered dramatically as he witnessed a hijacked plane disappear from the radarscope to collide into the Twin Towers. The search for and embracing of truth became factors that would help him heal and reclaim his life from the devastation caused by the tragic events. This is a story that will come across to most readers as an eye-opener, a startling revelation, and an irresistible inspiration.

It is Robert S. Totman’s story, but it is also the story of many people whose lives have been affected by tragedy, a story that mirrors and addresses the joys and fears, the hopes and difficulties of millions of people trying to find meaning in moments of adversity, and those struggling to rise above the rubble of life. The 9/11 events served as a catalyst that compelled the author to look at his life, and life in general, with honesty and to hear a voice inviting him to dig deeper. Robert’s book could be entertaining, but it offers powerful insights and lessons for men and women who have been deeply hurt and are in need of healing. The book can be read as an answer to the oft-neglected question: What does it take to rise after falling from the peak of success?

In clear and beautiful prose, the author lays bare the secrets of his life and allows readers to find answers to the many questions they fear to ask. To say that this autobiography is stirring is an understatement. One thing is undeniable, Robert’s story will undoubtedly move you.

About the author

Robert S. Totman was on-duty as an air traffic controller in New York on the terrible morning of 9/11. Just like the Twin Towers, his life came crashing down. From his own heap of ruins, the same zeal which delivered him to the planet-wide pinnacle of ATC has now taken him to an apex of spirituality that strips the spot-light from the greatest of terrors, giving attention to unshakable security.

Partly because of (and after) 9/11, he began seeing future events, secrets about others and courses of action to help people have well-being instead of disaster.

Formerly an air traffic controller, author Robert S. Totman and his wife Susan are missionaries with four children. They are gifted speakers who consider invitations to anywhere, pioneers who have planted a community church in North Dakota, and founders of Bethesda Global Ministries. They delight to see praise to God erupt as the words they deliver produce tangible results to the benefit of their listeners.
