Mans Search for Meaning an Introduction To Logotherapy by Viktor E Frankl
Mans Search for Meaning an Introduction To Logotherapy

laston lastof, February 10, 2008

Refreshingly new insights into the world we know today as the holocaust.
Refreshing because the author does not seize on his interment as a victim.
Indeed Frankl emerges from the Nazi era darkness with what may well be the only beam of light available.

Research, ideas and innovations become his vehicle of survival and transporter of hope.

Turning a fatal hopelessness into the opportunity of a lifetime as he studies in detail both captor and captured.
Discovering as he shares his understanding, more truth than most of us would care to admit.

Refreshing, because Viktor Frankl refuses to let his apparent circumstances dictate the outcome apparently fated by nature of the circumstance.

The Conversations: Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film by Michael Ondaatje
The Conversations: Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film

laston lastof, February 10, 2008

Those who write say a good movie can not be made with out first having a good story.
Those who operate the camera say that with out excellent pictures shot you can not have a good movie.
Those who direct say that with out direction it is cacophony.
Those who act say that without them the entire screen would be blank and void vistas.
Those who do any of the hundreds of other tasks in a production company know deep in their hearts that without their unique talents all would be lost.
Begging the question ...
Who makes it all work so i can see a finished film/video.
Enter Walter Murch.
Read the insights of a mind blanched in the crucible of daily conversation with author Michael Ondaatje.
Enjoy the musings of the person to whom belong the deft fingers, which have manipulated the machines, that brought many films to the screens of our lifetime.

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner
Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything

Go on a journey with authors whose smartness is documented by those recognized as documenters of smartness. Use this actual smartness to explore some commonly held stupidity and cause your self to become smart too. Reading this book will make you not only seem more smarterly but more gooder too.

I even find myself quoting this work at dinner parties, cross country bus seat sharing opportunities, serendipities encounters and other occasions where groups of one or more have assembled to listen to my pontifications.
