Man's Search for Meaning is more than a story of Viktor E. Frankl's triumph: it is a remarkable blend of science and humanism and an introduction to the most significant psychological movement of our day.

"An enduring work of survival literature." (The New York Times)
Retired former trial and corporate lawyer practicing his craft for over 40 years. Loves legal thrillers, mysteries, and dog related stories.
I read this book as a philosophy major in college many, many years ago and still found it just as relevant and meaningful today at age 73. Whenever you think you are having a bad day pick up this book and read a passage as to what concentration life was like. This book represents the essence of existential thinking. I mean what are we doing here in this world if we don't try to understand the meaning in it? Professor Frankl is able to share a different perspective of our search for meaning through the experiences he had, which thank God the vast majority of us will not have to endure.
I really liked the wise words he had to give. The perspective of life he has is freeing from what we normally see. The stories of being in the camps where heart wrenching.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a happier perspective of life.
This should be read by every kid in highschool before graduation. The lessons and preceptions you get are relevant in any persuit including simply living life. What a great book
