    Viktor Frankl is known to millions of listeners as a psychotherapist who has transcended his field in his search for answers to the ultimate questions of life, death, and suffering. Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning explores the sometimes unconscious basic human desire for inspiration or revelation and illustrates how life can offer profound meaning at every turn.

    Mirek says: "Unconscious Religiousness and the Ultimate Meaning"
    "hard to follow"
    Overall

    I am not a psychiatrist, so this was hard to keep up with the terms used. I was very impressed with his book "Man's Search for Meaning"

    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.

    Story

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    A. Wright says: "Inspired reading of a great book"
    "good story"
    Overall

    The story was interesting. It had romance, fighting, adventure, and history. I was surprised at how gory it got at times and crude in some places. I guess that's just the way it was.

  • The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream

    In July 2004, Barack Obama electrified the Democratic National Convention with an address that spoke to Americans across the political spectrum. Now, in The Audacity of Hope, Senator Obama calls for a different brand of politics: a politics for those weary of bitter partisanship and alienated by the "endless clash of armies" we see in Congress and on the campaign trail; a politics rooted in the faith, inclusiveness, and nobility of spirit at the heart of "our improbable experiment in democracy".

    Ronald says: "Barack Obama is an inspirng speaker"
    "his values"
    Overall

    I find Mr. Obama very interesting. He seems open and understanding of the problems of this country. He expresses himself well. I have never voted for a democrate in a national election, but I would consider voting for him. He has my respect.

    This book for Americans is easier to understand than some books with a stronger English accent. I found the story to be interesting.

    You can live happily every day, best-selling author Joel Osteen suggests, but you must discover the potential within yourself and learn how to use it to live better and to help others better themselves as well. God didn't create you to be average. You were created to excel! You have everything you need to fulfill your God-given destiny, and there is no limit to what you can accomplish if you discover how to be a better you!

    Juan says: "Great Inspirational book"
    "the positive side of God's word"
    Overall

    To many times we are taught the negative shoulds or oughts of God's word. Joel Osteen teaches the positive side of the Bible. A view that will make a person glad to know the word of God.
