Dr. Alex Pattakos is a bestselling author, former Professor of
Public and Business Administration and the founder of the Global Meaning
Institute, which aims to help people discover meaning in their lives and work.
Alex has written best-selling books on the human quest for meaning including Prisoners of Our Thoughts, which was written at the personal urging of the world-renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Viktor Frankl, the author of Man's Search for Meaning and a survivor of the Nazi concentration camps.
