World-renowned psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning is one of the most important books of modern times. Frankl's personal story of finding a reason to live in the most horrendous of circumstances, Nazi concentration camps, has inspired millions. Now, Prisoners of Our Thoughts applies Frankl's philosophy to the workplace, detailing seven principles for increasing your capacity to deal with work challenges, finding meaning in your daily work life, and achieving your highest potential. 

Alex Pattakos, Ph.D., a dedicated student of Frankl's thought, was urged by Frankl himself to write this important audiobook. In it, Pattakos draws on the entire body of Frankl's work, illustrating his philosophy through seven easy-to-understand principles: 

1. Exercise the freedom to choose your attitude

2. Realize your will to meaning

3. Detect the meaning of life's moments

4. Don't work against yourself

5. Look at yourself from a distance

6. Shift your focus of attention

7. Extend beyond yourself

Through stories, examples, and thought-provoking exercises, Pattakos illustrates how you can apply each of these principles to various work situations and everyday life.

As Dr. Frankl would say, only we, as individuals, can answer for our own life by detecting the meaning at any given moment and assuming the responsibility for weaving our own unique tapestry of existence. The search for meaning at work offers us both formidable challenges and ample opportunities. Prisoners of Our Thoughts makes Frankl's seminal work accessible and relevant, opening up new opportunities for finding personal meaning through work and living an authentic life.

    " Not all that bad, but it never really grabbed my attention. There are some good principles throughout the book and it did expound a little more on Viktor Frankls work. "

    " So far adds little to Frankl's writings, and what it does add is done in very shallow simplistic fashion. Maybe it will get better... "

    " Recollection of discussions about life and work between Victor Frankl and author Alex Pattakos. Some interesting insights which made me add Victor Frankl's own work to my reading list. "
