Publisher's Summary

Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of, his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.

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.

©1959, 1962, 1984 Viktor E. Frankl; (P)1995 Blackstone Audiobooks

    "A Must Read"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "I cried a few times"

    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.
