All of us have what it takes to make it in today's competitive and changing world. You may have doubted your ability to get the job done in the past, but something else may have been getting in the way of your success. The key to ultimate achievement has very little to do with your education or skill level. The secret to accomplishing great things is simple: Find and pursue the kind of work you are meant to do - your "purpose."

Les Brown is great on this audio book. He provided me with many insights to work on. If there is one thing that I did not like so much is the fact that he is laughing a lot on this audio book after telling jokes. However, he is one and only. One of a kind ! Thank you Les !

Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps.

What did you love best about Man's Search for Meaning ?

The definition of freedom

What was one of the most memorable moments of Man's Search for Meaning ?

Freedom is the ability to decide how you are going to behave regardless of the outer circumstances

Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I have not. This is the 1st time but I thought it was a great performance

If you could give Man's Search for Meaning a new subtitle, what would it be?

Freedom is a subjective issue!

The narration is great but what mr. bernstein says in this book are controversial. I mean some things are interesting concepts but I wonder.. how much money has mr bernstein earned from investing and how much from publishing his books? It's clear that I cannot accept these concepts unless he himself has earned a great amount of money in investing and NOT by publishing this book.

The simple word "no" is often the most difficult to say. Yet anyone can develop the skills to say no with confidence, kindness, and peace of mind. And the benefits are enormous. You'll spend less time doing things you don't want to do with people you don't want to see, and move closer to your own priorities and passions.
