If you’ve ever struggled to find meaning or direction during this pandemic time, then do we have the hope-filled Man’s Search for Meaning show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Mitch Horowitz, a leader in the new thought movement, PEN Award-Winning historian, the author of “The Miracle Club”, and the Napoleon Hill Success Course series which includes “The Miracle of a Definite Chief Aim”, “One Simple Idea”, and his latest, “Secrets of Self-Mastery”.

Today we’ll talk about one of the most important books of the last century, and perhaps now more than ever, Dr. Viktor Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning”. We will talk about the primary purpose of life, and what it means for us all during this time.





Mitch Horowitz is a writer and publisher with a lifelong interest in Man’s Search for Meaning. The PEN Award-winning author of The Miracle Club, The Miracle of a Definite Chief Aim, The Mastery of Good of Luck, Occult America, One Simple Idea, and Secrets of Self-Mastery. Mitch has written on everything from the war on witches to the secret life of Ronald Reagan for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Salon, and Time.

The Washington Post says Mitch “treats esoteric ideas and movements with an even-handed intellectual studiousness that is too often lost in today’s raised-voice discussions.”

He is also the voice of popular audio books, including Alcoholics Anonymous and The Jefferson Bible, and host of the web series ORIGINS: SUPERSTITIONS. Mitch is a former vice president and executive editor at Tarcher Perigee, a division of Penguin Random House.
