Man's Search for Meaning

Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl by Viktor Frankl
This inspiring, riveting, and human book ranks among the most influential works of modern psychiatry. Over 12 million copies have been sold worldwide.

Man’s Search for Meaning begins with a deeply moving personal account of his concentration camps experiences. Frankl moves on to present “Logotherapy,” the psychoanalytical approach based on the “will to meaning” born of his personal struggles to find a reason to live despite his concentration camp imprisonment and once liberated.

In contrast with Freud (will to pleasure) and Adler (will to power), Frankl believes man’s deepest need is the search for meaning and purpose. He argues we cannot avoid suffering, but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward.

The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate

The Five Love Languages:  How to Express Heartelt Commitment to Your Mate  by Gary Chapman by Dr. Gary Chapman
Are you and your spouse speaking the same language? Not Chinese and French! We’re talking “love languages.” People express and receive love in various styles. Misunderstanding and quarrels often arise when he and she speak different love languages. What are they? Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch.

He says “I Love You” with flowers, but she would have really felt special if someone had vacuumed for her! He’s annoyed because she’s not pleased…. To make up she cooks him a great dinner, but he wants a “Mon Cheri.” They obviously love each other and work at their relationship, but the warm feelings get lost in love language translation.

Gary Chapman—a marriage counsellor for over 30 years—identifies the five basic languages of love and guides couples towards a better understanding of their unique love languages and those of their mates. …So he learns how to vacuum and she stocks up on chocolate covered cherries!

A very worthwhile read.
