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)
I've been meaning to read this book for over a decade, and I'm glad I finally have. Frankl has professional insight coupled with his perspectives gained in concentration camps. It would be hard to argue his views born out of that experience.
For anybody pursuing happiness, let this book be one of your guides.
I grew up on Golden Age Radio, I love to learn about a great many things, and I enjoy a wide variety of genres. Me, bored? Never!
There are a handful of books that should truly be required and desired reading for everyone across the world. This is one of them. It is simultaneously repulsive and compelling, disheartening and hopeful.
I read this book perhaps 20 years ago. The older I get, the more I find new meaning in it. There are a great many self-help books out there that go on and on and say nothing. Then there's a book like this that offers an unblinking look at one of history's most horrific events from an inside perspective and uses that as a lead-in to offer to us a scientific embrace of the three little words that could mean the most to all of us.
Love. Faith. Hope.

This is not the first time I read the book but it is the first time I listened to it. The reading is very good and it's worth listening to at least a couple of times. An important work and wonderful to have in audible format.
This book is lifechanging.
The life and hope there-in.
Yes, I love his performances and this was another fabulous one!
You matter, your dignity is real. Or, you are responsible because you are irreplaceable. Or, your dignity has nothing to do with your usefulness... it is innate. Or, wake up Sleeper and rise from the dead!
I wish this book came with every new born babe. Loved it in every way!
