Summary, etc.: World-renowned psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning is one of the most important books of modern times. Frankl's personal story of finding a reason to live in Nazi concentration camps has inspired millions. In Prisoners of Our Thoughts, Dr. Alex Pattakos-whom Frankl urged to write this book-elaborates seven "core principles" based on Frankl's philosophy and demonstrates how they can help us find meaning in our everyday lives and work . This second edition features new stories and examples of people who have applied the principles in the book or who exemplify them; new practical exercises and applications; and a new chapter, "The Meaning Difference╩╝," which summarizes research demonstrating the critical role of meaning in improving the quality of people's lives, increasing happiness, promoting health and wellness, and achieving their highest potential.
