DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

A prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in Auschwitz coped (or didn't) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest - and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances. The sort of person the concentration camp prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not of camp influences alone. Only those who allowed their inner hold on their moral and spiritual selves to subside eventually fell victim to the camp's degenerating influence - while those who made a victory of those experiences turned them into an inner triumph. Frankl came to believe man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. This outstanding work offers us all a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the art of living.

He expands upon his groundbreaking ideas and searches for answers about life, death, faith and suffering. Believing that there is much more to our existence than meets the eye, he says: 'No one will be able to make us believe that man is a sublimated animal once we can show that within him there is a repressed angel.' In Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning, Frankl explores our sometimes unconscious desire for inspiration or revelation. He explains how we can create meaning for ourselves and, ultimately, he reveals how life has more to offer us than we could ever imagine.

Editor: Scribner

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In this groundbreaking new work, David Kessler—an expert on grief and the coauthor with Elisabeth Kübler-Ross of the iconic On Grief and Grieving—journeys beyond the classic five stages to discover a sixth stage: meaning. In 1969, Elisabeth Kübler Ross first identified the stages of dying in her transformative book On Death and Dying. Decades later, she and David Kessler wrote the classic On Grief and Grieving, introducing the stages of grief with the same transformative pragmatism and compassion. Now, based on hard-earned personal experiences, as well as knowledge and wisdom earned through decades of work with the grieving, Kessler introduces a critical sixth stage. Many people look for “closure” after a loss. Kessler argues that it’s finding meaning beyond the stages of grief most of us are familiar with—denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance—that can transform grief into a more peaceful and hopeful experience. In this book, Kessler gives readers a roadmap to remembering those who have died with more love than pain; he shows us how to move forward in a way that honors our loved ones. Kessler’s insight is both professional and intensely personal. His journey with grief began when, as a child, he witnessed a mass shooting at the same time his mother was dying. For most of his life, Kessler taught physicians, nurses, counselors, police, and first responders about end of life, trauma, and grief, as well as leading talks and retreats for those experiencing grief. Despite his knowledge, his life was upended by the sudden death of his twenty-one-year-old son. How does the grief expert handle such a tragic loss? He knew he had to find a way through this unexpected, devastating loss, a way that would honor his son. That, ultimately, was the sixth state of grief—meaning. In Finding Meaning, Kessler shares the insights, collective wisdom, and powerful tools that will help those experiencing loss. Finding Meaning is a necessary addition to grief literature and a vital guide to healing from tremendous loss. This is an inspiring, deeply intelligent must-read for anyone looking to journey away from suffering, through loss, and towards meaning.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

TIME DREAMS. They are dreams, like any other dream. They are dreams about space and Time. They seem real, but so does life.Dreams are thoughts. You've heard it before, “I think, therefore I am.” (Rene' Descartes). But, the fact is - nobody even knows where thoughts come from.Most people believe they have free will. They believe they have a choice. They believe they act of their own volition. But, will is not an action. It is only a thought. You cannot will something to happen. You are only free to choose the thoughts in your head. And, no one knows where they come from.Life is a fantasy. No one knows what Life is or where it came from. No one knows what Time is. No one knows where Man came from or how long he's been on this planet. No one knows if their actions are truly theirs. No one knows where dreams come from. No one knows what reality is.Quexistence: The Quest for the Meaning of Existence: TIME DREAMS is a philosophical fantasy of dreams, space, Time, and love. It is the story of one man's search to find the meaning of his existence. But, how can he when nothing in this world is real? Have you ever wondered where Man came from? Did Man evolve from the apes? Was Man created by God? Perhaps Man was genetically created by the “Gods”. Perhaps these “Gods” created other creatures in their attempt to make Man. “TIME DREAMS” is a story that reaches back to the Time of Creation. Man, the most arrogant of species, has no idea what Life is or where it came from. He doesn't even know how he originated or how long he's been on this planet. So, is that important in finding meaning for your existence?Gork thinks it is. In his quest to find clues to the origin of Man, Gork discovers there may be something even more meaningful.Gork tells Angie the story of how he met the girl in his dreams, her grandmother, Amani. His Time Dreams begin as he travels to an archaeological site near the Calico Hills in California. During the drive across the desert, Gork has his first dream, a dream that takes him to another time, another world. In his dream he sees a girl, the girl of his dreams, Amani. He falls in love. It is True Love. It is Eternal Love. It is a love that has been since the beginning of creation.Gork travels through space and time, compelled to follow his dream. His dreams take him back to a time and place long forgotten. While in reality he discovers an underground cavern that holds the secret to Man's past. A secret buried in Time.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Ancient feuds shift into uncertain alliances when murder threatens the secrecy of the supernatural world. Pushing papers at a werewolf sanctuary is the least appealing assignment Aviva could have wished for. It's the bottom rung of the career ladder for a vampire, a job that will leave her isolated from most of her kind as she watches over members of a species whose very existence threatens the secrecy of the supernatural world. Her only consolation is the promise of peace, quiet, and a chance to impress the elders over the course of an easy assignment. After all, the werewolves may be troublesome, but they've kept their own secrets for a century. But the situation at the sanctuary is not what she expected, and Aviva's hopes of easy success are quickly dashed. Age-old tensions between vampires and werewolves come to a head when a human in a nearby village is found brutally murdered and suspicion lands squarely on the sanctuary's supernatural inhabitants. When the pack leaders refuse to turn the killer in to face justice, Aviva knows her elders will do anything to keep their world safe from humans, even if it means wiping out the werewolves for good. With the help of a mistrustful female and a relentlessly tempting alpha male, it will be up to Aviva to overcome the instinctive hatred between their species and catch a murderer before the human world takes notice-and before the sanctuary turns into a battleground.

Later, as one of the richest and most powerful men in Arizona Territory, he fathers a son by one of his prostitutes. The boy, named Caldera, means nothing to McKenzie.
