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.

This book is a lukewarm regurgitation of Victor Frankl's book. Everything after author's first principle (name ten good things about your current or future situation) was just filler. This could have been covered in a single paragraph. I almost made it to the end hoping that it would contain some gem of wisdom, but had to cut it 15 minutes short to avoid the author's egotistical ramblings. Read by the author in an annoying wet-noodle, milk toast Tony Robbins style. Most of the quotes from Victor Frankl's book were mumbled in a low almost inaudible voice. The nicest thing i can say about the narration is that it was very annoying.

Good Book, Bad Reader
The book is useful and mildly inspirational. However, throughout the reading the reader's mouth was too close to the microphone. His mouth noises were almost too much for my sensitive ears to stand. I had to listen using speakers and not earphones. This is the one factor that took away from my enjoyment. But the book is good literature and worthwhile.
