Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.

This is one for everyone. An incredible read of a historical tragedy, followed by a far more than credible appraisal and psychoanalysis of the how and why.

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

I really enjoyed this book and its wake-up call upon the simplest and most primal ideas. Coupled with another great book on purpose, and perhaps also one on Stoicism, these are invaluable life lessons and a positive reinforcement of one's resolve and direction.

In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

This book is near perfection for the mind and soul.
There are lessons that we all should learn and understand, and there is a story that grips at you tight enough to make you pop.
It's brilliant!
We need a mind such as this in Western World' schools, today.
