Publisher's Summary

Loneliness, boredom, emptiness: These are the complaints that Rollo May encountered over and over from his patients. In response, he probes the hidden layers of personality to reveal the core of man's integration-a basic and inborn sense of value.

Man's Search for Himself is an illuminating view of our predicament in an age of overwhelming anxieties and gives guidance on how to choose, judge, and act during such times.

Good and introspective

I think this book is all about where you are at the time of reading it. I could see it being very helpful if in a tough spot but didn’t seem to have the same impact on me as I had heard on others. I rarely rate things low but I found myself losing interest - perhaps a factor of dated references and language that doesn’t apply any longer.
