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

    Story
    "Humbling and empowering"

    Everyone should read this book. Everyone.
    How can someone who endured such things maintain hope for a better world and faith in the human race when privileged rich kids think the world is going to crap? Meaning.

    Love and meaning. You can have a rich and profound life without money, power, influence, even without freedom or access to sufficient food and clean water but any life without love or meaning is a less valuable existence. "A man who has the why to live can deal with any how..."

    Story
    "One of the Great Books of the 20th Century"

    It is really three incredible books in one. Each of the three parts were written at different times, but work as a trilogy. If everyone had Dr. Frankl's world view, what rewarding lives they would have.

    Story
    "One of the most valuable philosophical reads"

    The story of Frankl's experience in the concentrations camps and the subsequent description and explanation of the silver lining, his analytic theories of logotherapy, are not only a good read, they are also invaluable for conceptualizing the human experience and will to survive.

    "Incredible personal experience"

    His personal experiences were incredible to listen to them. The science explanations may be difficult to follow without the psychiatric background.

    Not only a testimonial to a horrific experience, but also a validation that life can be lived wonderfully even thru terrible atrocities.
