An excerpt from this interview:

Ali Jawad: Christian, what inspired you to write the book?

Dr Christian Busch: I used to be an extremely rebellious teenager. I was kicked out of school. I channeled my energy in very questionable ways. Then I turned 18. I got my first car. Unsurprisingly, my driving style mirrored my approach to life. One day that all changed. I had a car crash. It almost killed me. This event acted as a trigger to set me on a journey in search of meaning. As part of that search, I read Viktor Frankl's wonderful book Man's Search for Meaning, which is all about the idea that you can find meaning even in the most dire of situations......
