12 Books that got me through 2020

Updated: Dec 23, 2020

1. Man’s Search for Meaning

- Viktor E. Frankl

Viktor Frankl was an Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist and author who survived Nazi concentration camps. This book tells his story, and is an exploration of what it means to be human and how we can survive and find meaning in suffering and hardship. “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

This book was like a wise friend for me on some dark days of 2020.

2. Awakening Joy

– James Baraz and Shoshana Alexander

Full of sweet and simple stories, practices and encouragement to weave joy into your life, even amidst the daily grind, stresses and challenges – and as I found, even amidst a pandemic!
