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
    "What incredible insight into the human soul"

    Going into this book, I had high expectations because I have been told by several very esteemed friends that Victor E Frankl is their role model. I was amazed at the insights that Dr. Frankl put down and think that any man or woman who has so clearly triumphed over their suffering in so heroic a way can only have a wealth of wisdom to pass on. Read this book. It will change your life.

    Story
    "Wonderful and Inspiring"
    If you could sum up Man's Search for Meaning in three words, what would they be?

    Inspirational, Vivid, Eye-Opening


    What other book might you compare Man's Search for Meaning to and why?

    Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay because of the captivating and hear wrenching story that isn't among the common ones told of the time of the Holocaust.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and cry. But, most importantly, it made me think.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a story that proves that the human body can endure great things if one keeps the mind active and goal driven.

    Story
    "Some things cannot be rated"

    Some things cannot be assessed on scales of great or average and this is one such book. Much like the Holy Bible, it's inherent value may differ vastly from one creed to another, but cannot be denied.

    This is simply a book that any and every person must read from cover to cover and then repeat.

    Story
    "A must read !!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, If you are in the counseling field you have likely heard others talk about this book. There is a good reason for that! While reading this book I became so enthralled that I would find myself walking around with no purpose, just lost in the story. It is not an easy read, but it is very mind opening. Some of his observations were the complete opposite of what I expected to hear. I feel like I gained valuable knowledge listening to his story.
