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

    "Wonderful"

    A life changing and life opening read. Narration is exquisite as well. Genuinely worth the investment and blending with the book. You will want to listen again and again and reference highlighted dog-eared pages in your paper copy.

    Story
    "Helpful to understand & pursue a meaningful life."

    Frankl shares experiences from the German concentration camps and discusses the variables that allowed for certain individuals to not give up despite it all. Then he discusses a more practical understanding of meaning for the contemporary person.

    Story
    "Classic Philosophy Book"
    Would you listen to Man's Search for Meaning again? Why?

    Yes, it's a reminder to always keep your chin up and that life is precious. Everytime I feel down, I skip to chapter 5 and start being grateful. I begin to look for little things that make me happy. Make the best out of the life that you currently living.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The middle to the end is the nitty gritty chapters of this book.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, although I feel the narrator can tell a more emotional way of telling the story.
