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.

What does everyone in the modern world need to know? Renowned psychologist Jordan B. Peterson's answer to this most difficult of questions uniquely combines the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting-edge scientific research. Humorous, surprising, and informative, Dr. Peterson tells us why skateboarding boys and girls must be left alone, what terrible fate awaits those who criticize too easily, and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the street.

This book is easily digestible but still requires the listener to pay careful attention. It's read with gripping emotion by the author himself. At several times during the reading the author is nearly brought to tears, you can really tell that the author truly cares about what he wrote and wants the listener to take the book seriously. It's worth your while to listen to this audiobook.

A harrowing story that follows the wanderings of a boy abandoned by his parents during World War II, The Painted Bird is a dark masterpiece that examines the proximity of terror and savagery to innocence and love.

Criticisms of the author aside, this book is a monumental work of literature. Its portrayal of the brutality of war and human malevolence through the naive lens of a child will humble the reader.

  • The Road to Wigan Pier

When Orwell went to England in the 30's to find out how industrial workers lived, he not only observed but shared in their experiences. He stayed in cramped, dreary lodgings and subsisted on the scant, cheerless diet of the poor. He went down into the coal mines and walked crouching, as the miners did, through a one- to three-mile passage too low to stand up in. He watched the back-breaking, dangerous labor of men whose net pay then averaged $575 a year.

The narration is first rate. The book still holds up and is still relevant even today. Orwell's style and prose is always fantastic.
