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.
Revolutionary work of inspiration!
This book is incredible! Blending the best aspects of psychology and deeply honest biographical experience, Frankl creates a revolutionary new theory of logotherapy which explains life as a constant search for meaning. Amazing, incredible book - not just a biography, nor just a self-help book, this work is truly life-changing. Read it - you won't be disappointed!
A profound book from a great mind!
A very real look and understanding of human suffering, I especially enjoy his account of Nazi camp survival.
A Necesary Read
First, this book can be read in an hour or a little more. Potential readers should not be put off by the circumstances. Frankl makes no attempts to tug at your heart for the atrocitites he and others endured at the hands of the Nazi regime. His account of his experience is stated as fact but it is the analysis of how he and others survived, their refusal give in to the dire circumstances that surrounded them, and their value of life that enabled them to survive. He also enlightens us to the fears of not only concentration camp victims but the fears of some of the guards who also knew their time was limited. Frankl provides great analysis as to why people act or do not act in a particular manner depending on the circumstances which surround them. Frankl's discussion of logotherapy is also interesting for anyone remotely interested in psychology. You will not go wrong with this book. It has sold more than 12 million copies and has been translated into several languages. That alone speaks volumes about this small but important book.
