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.
How does someone find the strength to go on under life in a concentration camp? Fankl was uniquely qualified to answer that question and inspire all of us to find meaning in good times and bad times.
Everyone loves a good spy story, but most of the ones we hear are fictional. That's because the most dangerous and important spycraft is done in secret, often without anyone even noticing. In Survive Like a Spy, best-selling author and former CIA officer Jason Hanson takes the listener deep inside the world of espionage, revealing true stories and expert tactics from real agents engaged in life-threatening missions around the world.
I chose this to enhance skills and knowledge I've gained over the years regarding self-defense and world travel. This delivered!

Mary DiNunzio has been slaving away for the past eight years trying to make partner in her cutthroat Philadelphia law firm. She's too busy to worry about the crank phone calls she's been getting, until they fall into a sinister pattern. The phone rings as soon as she gets to work then as soon as she gets home. Mary can't shake the sensation that someone is watching her, following her every move.
If you're looking for a Grisham thriller, this doesn't quite cut it. A decent story, but much more about personal drama and romance than legal thrills.
Some men are born to be warriors, and Ed Shames is one of these men. His incredible combat record includes service at D-Day, Operation Market Garden, and Bastogne and finally in Germany itself.
Although this mimics most all of these Band of Brothers it truly expands on many of those characters we've heard about all these years. Wynn, Strohl, Guth, Sisk, Gordon, etc. BofB fans will love it.
JET - Ops Files chronicles the early years of Maya, who would go on to become the Mossad's deadliest operative: the assassin known as Jet.
If you love Mitch Rapp, you'll love the female version. She is a force that has no problem getting her hands dirty.

MercyMe's crossover hit, "I Can Only Imagine", has touched millions of people around the world. But few know about the pain, redemption, and healing that inspired it. Now Bart Millard, award-winning recording artist and lead singer of MercyMe, shares how his dad's transformation from abusive father to man of God sparked a divine moment in music history. Go behind the scenes of Bart's life - and the movie based on it - to discover how God repaired a broken family, prepared Bart for ministry through music, and wrote the words on his heart that would change his life forever.
A movie can only offer so much of one's story and there's so much more story here. Bart's bio and the mission of Mercy Me are truly God-saturated events that point to the work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. So much redemption for these folks but a redemption that can be found in all of us. I loved diving deeper into this story of how God orchestrates every detail.
As a struggling young attorney fresh out of law school, Renny Jacobson was pining for the day he could afford the fast cars and sprawling homes of the partners in his Charlotte firm. And with news of his father's death and an ancient, secret inheritance, Renny's life was sure to change forever. But the inheritance and membership in the clandestine society which provided it soon threatens to change him in more ways than one.
This isn't the author's fault, but many suggested this as a legal thriller in the vein of John Grisham. It's not. The main character is a lawyer but there's not much law or thrill in this one. The writing is decent and plot interesting. Just OK.
In March of 2002, while the eyes of the world focused on Afghanistan, Jack Noble finds himself on the outskirts of Baghdad, Iraq. A Marine in name only, Jack is on loan to the CIA. Normally an integral part of the team, he finds that he is nothing more than a security detail in Iraq.
I enjoyed the buildup of this Marine's challenges and eventual conclusion. The tease at the end left me curious for number two. A great first novel for this character.
If you’re at all responsible for your company’s success, you can’t just be a hard-charging entrepreneur or a motivating, encouraging leader. You have to be both! If you’re at all responsible for your company’s success, you can’t just be a hard-charging entrepreneur or a motivating, encouraging leader. You have to be both! This book presents Dave’s playbook for creating work that matters; building an incredible group of passionate, empowered team members; and winning the race with steady momentum that will roll over any obstacle.
At first, I thought this was just another book on business/leadership with platitudes. There are some of those, but what you'll find in Ramsey's company are ingenious and tried-and-true methods that have made their company a powerhouse.
For sex-crimes detective Livia Lone, a position with a government anti-trafficking task force is a chance to return to Thailand to ferret out Rithisak Sorm, the kingpin behind her own childhood ordeal. But after a planned takedown in a nightclub goes violently awry, Livia discovers that she's not the only one hunting Sorm. Former marine sniper Dox has a score to settle, too, and working together is the only way to take Sorm out.
Fiction can tell so much truth. Eisler's groundbreaking character not only delivers passion, thrills, action, and emotion, but this book teaches the truth of human trafficking.
