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.

Captivating, Saddening, Encouraging.
The extent of the dehumanizing of fellow human beings.
Viktor FranklThis is an autobiography by a concentration camp survivor.
When one loses hope, death is soon to follow.
This is the first time I have been able to get a glimpse of what it was like for those unfortunate people who were segregated out by their own community and systematically dehumanized. It was truly eye opening especially because of Frankl's vocation as a psychiatrist. He bought analytical insight into his own suffering.
Part 2 and Frankl's ideas on modern society's struggle with meaning and the general origin's of meaning are timeless. For words written at a very different time, I am struck by logotherapy's modern striving to remove value-judgments from therapy.
I really enjoyed this book. The development of a new type of therapy from one man's experience in a concentration camp is a wonderful story. The practical applications of logo therapy was equally interesting and inspiring.
Beautifully read and a great production. I'll be returning here again and again.
After hearing about Dr. Frankl's experience from Stephen Covey's '7 Habits of Highly Effective People', I decided to take a look at his work for myself. I was not disappointed.

A necessary slice within any complete comprehension of contemporary life and malaise. Explains our mistakes, why we are so attached to them, as well as the way out should we by some miracle choose to take it.
Love listening to the voice of the narrator. Pearls of wisdom abound in this audio book. I am going to listen to it again as it has been such a source of inspiration to me!
I was given this by my therapist for an axiety disorder I had since childhood. This reinforces the idea that we have choices to be who we want to be in regards to our ultimate lifes meaning bit that it doesnt have to be the only thing we seek out. For if we focus completely on one thing we shall miss our targets completely. An example is how he survived the death camp. He focused on his love and not his survival or circumstances and his mind body or and soul found a way to guide him through it.
