Extremely powerful story of Dr Frankl and his experiences in the German concentration camps. He relates how his work on Logotherapy applies to his experiences and he raises many strong points about what life is about.

Outstanding look into the mind of photographers. However the book binding is poor and there are only a few women photographers. So few it was noticed.

The Tenth Parallel by Eliza Griswold
Rate this book
Clear rating
Fairly well balanced look at the intersections of society where humans aren't good too one another based on need and tribe. Painful and powerful.

I did take off a star for the sheer number of times the phrase tenth parallel was written

Windows Cyber Security 101 by Irwin Starr

Terribly written and overall quite poor across the board. It feels auto generated from slash dot - which isn't very good for software security.

The Street Photographer's Manual by David Gibson
Rate this book
Clear rating
Not a bad book by any stretch but I did find it lacking in soul. I also found the artists profiled all had a similar view - the true diversity of street photography was missing.

I should also mention the typeface was super tiny.

Solid and frank talk about what's important, with a high focus on sales, as your company grows.

Writing style was a bit distracting.

A little slow to start but once it got going it was a wild ride. I also enjoyed the way the three stories were done.
