In Your Extraordinary Why, Brett Pyle captures the essence of Viktor Frankl’s ideas about the human capacity of finding meaning and significance in life and conveys them most accurately – and lively.

Why this book?
For years, at the end of my speaking programs, people would ask: "When's the book coming out?"
I hated the question.
I KNEW I was supposed to write it - completing this book was part of my purpose here on earth. But I was plagued by the demon of 'perfectionism' - an adversary so fierce it stymied all my attempts to produce a basic 1st draft let alone a finished manuscript. Clearly an internal battle was mounting.
In a single blunt phrase, a trusted friend offered this sage advice:
"First drafts are supposed to stink."
What? Really? Surprisingly, the goal of producing an IMPERFECT first draft set me free.
Thankfully, feedback from 700+ speaking audiences, a great editor, a gifted illustrator, and 20+ manuscript revisions later, made all the difference. Now after I speak, people who've read the book often say:
"Wow ... you write, just like you speak."
I trust they're complimenting my writing. Ha!
It's my sincerest hope that this book inspires you, and those you share it with, to make the most of this gift of life you've been given. Enjoy!
