I was so looking forward to this book that the very poor quality of the reader was doubly disappointing. This person sounds as if he has toilet paper wadded up in both nostrils and a tight rubber band around his tonsils, or some place else. I did listen to the sample, but apparently not long enough to appreciate the grating and monotonous qualities of this reader's voice. Appalling and a waste of money. Definitely not what I would expect from Audible.
Excellent book; very well read. This short book is a compact narrative of Viktor Frankel's insights into how humans derive meaning and the importance of the journey. His writing is highly accessible, using a storyteller's approach to succinctly convey the main points. Although short, it is a dynamic book that one can enjoy listening to many times, and each time deriving some new insights into Frankel's philosophy and ideas about psychology. This is also a good book for those who may have heard of existential psychology but thought it was too dense for them to understand. The narrator clearly has an affinity for this material; his expressive reading style contributes to the listener's understanding. For those who have read the book, as I have, I recommend the audio for an understanding of Frankel's work at the heart level.
