    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.

    First Things First is a revolutionary guide to managing your time by learning how to balance your life. Traditional time management suggests that working harder, smarter, and faster will help you gain control over your life, and that increased control will bring peace and fulfillment. But the authors of First Things First apply the insights of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to our daily problems of struggling with the ever-increasing demands of work and home life.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    The rules for living in the real world have changed, because the world we live in has changed. Much of the conventional wisdom the last generation has passed on just doesn't apply like it once did. If you want to win, and win big, and, more importantly, keep what you work so hard for, you need a crystal-clear view of how the real world works - not how you wish it worked, but how it actually works.

    Would you try another book from Phil McGraw and/or Phil McGraw?

    Yes. He offers a fresh outlook and unique action plans.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Still a little negative. He says he is just keeping it real. He may be right, I just hope not.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    What he says about infidelity was wise.


    Could you see Dr. Phil McGraw: Life Code being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I think it has. The Dr. Phil Show.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like this book, read 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Covey. Dr. Phil borrowed heavily from him.

    Dr. Gary Chapman believes you have a God-given yearning for complete and unconditional love. But you'll never be able to express it, or receive it, until you learn to speak the right "love" language. The Five Love Languages for Singles reveals how different personalities express love in different ways.
