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

    "Top 5 books of all time!"

    I read this book 14 years ago and put it in my top 3-5 books. Just finished listening to it again and stay steadfast in my original opinion. Absolutely a must read book.

    "Great classic, very meaningful even today."

    Apart from the great content of this amazing book, the narrator did a good job. Not convinced about reading out each of the references, but otherwise a great work.

    "wonderful advice!"

    I really loved this book! It's a refreshing take in this 21st century world lost in meaning or gods. it's very applicable to nowadays and much more simple than your regular therapist.

    "Profound and inspiring"

    This book transcends categorization. It upholds the reality of responsibility and the duty to endure suffering. Well written and finely narrated, it rewards greatly the few short hours needed to read it.

    Story
    "Strong story from a WW2 Holocaust survivor"

    A doctor of psychotherapy goes through the whole process of being sent to a "work camp" during WW2. his mind captures a lot of details about morality, spirit and the will to survive.

    Not so much focus on the war, and nazis, but more of a study of humans under extreme duress.

    Though it is a memoir and should be read as such, it offers a lot of insight into psyche.

    Details will turn your stomach (as it should), but I will read it again in a few years

    (I switched back and forth between reading and hearing via Audible)
