One of the ten most influential books in America. —Library of Congress/Book-of-the-Month Club "Survey of Lifetime Readers"
"Viktor Frankl's timeless formula for survival. One of the classic psychiatric texts of our time, Man's Search for Meaning is a meditation on the irreducible gift of one's own counsel in the face of great suffering, as well as a reminder of the responsibility each of us owes in valuing the community of our humanity. There are few wiser, kinder, or more comforting challenges than Frankl's." —Patricia J. Williams, author of Seeing a Color-Blind Future: The Paradox of Race
"Dr. Frankl's words have a profoundly honest ring, for they rest on experiences too deep for deception… A gem of a dramatic narrative, focused upon the deepest of human problems." —Gordon W. Allport, from the Preface
"An enduring work of survival literature." —The New York Times
"[Man's Search for Meaning] might well be prescribed for everyone who would understand our time." —Journal of Individual Psychology
"An inspiring document of an amazing man who was able to garner some good from an experience so abysmally bad… Highly recommended." —Library Journal
"One of the great books of our time." —Harold S. Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
"One of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought in the last fifty years." —Carl R. Rogers (1959)
From the Hardcover edition.

When the Nazis entered in Austria, he had two choices: leave to USA alone, or stay in occupied Austria with his parents.
He chose to stay. He ended up being sent to Auschwitz.
Whenhe entered in the concentration camp, the only valuable he carried was a manuscript of his research. He begged the guard to let it pass, but lost it. The manuscript he was trying to save constituted the fundament for Logotherapy. He believed that having a Purpose in Life is the key to the survival of an individual, even in the harshest circumstances. The day he lost his initial manuscript was the day he got to truly test his ideas, in the worst scenario possible for human existence. It was a matter of survival.
In this book, he tells his experience as a camp prisoner, while reflecting on this experience with his sharp lenses of Psychology. He tells stories of the camp: extremely dark and heartbreaking but always with an halo of Hope behind the ugly reality screen.
Viktor E. Frankl survived to write this book. This small book is a shining black pearl.
It is Wisdom in high density, and one of the best books I read in my entire life!
I wish it was obligatory to read it in every school.
It really deserves to be read.
I was late to the party - most of you probably already read it - but I am at an age where looking for the meaning of my life is maybe more important than ever. Viktor Frankl, as you know, was a psychiatrist who was imprisoned by the Nazis at Auschwitz. There, while he suffered, he also learned, and when he was released, he wrote this book. Could we possibly have a more seasoned teacher?
I picked up dozens of life lessons, but for brevity's sake, will mention only a few. For much more, I highly, highly recommend this book. I don't think you can be fully educated about your life's course until you read it thoughtfully. And don't be afraid, as I was, of the heartbreaking circumstances of the camps. Frankl uses them as a basis for making his points, but doesn't sensationalize them. Even a wuss like me can handle it.
Here are some of the best concepts I gleaned from Man's Search for Meaning:
* Don't ask what is the meaning of life. Ask what meaning you are giving to your existence, for this is your responsibility.
* Meaning can be found in suffering. In America, we act like we're ashamed of it. Why not hold your head up and suffer proudly? Add it to your list of accomplishments. Don't seek it, but if you're stuck with it, do it well. Add it to your life's accounting.
* Man can endure anything if he sees a purpose. In one example, a widower couldn't rise above his grief. Frankl helped him see that by being the survivor, the man spared his late wife the pain. Thus he was heroic. The man rallied, glad to have spared his wife the anguish.
* Some see the pages of one's calendar torn off, and grieve over time passing. Frankl says to think of each page of the calendar as a well-lived, fine accounting of oneself. The stack of pages amounts to a kind of wealth, like a full granary. How did I do? How did I live? What is the accounting of my life? This perspective gives our days meaning.
There is so much more. I can only recommend this book to you with all my heart. Thank you, Dr. Frankl. You certainly made a great accounting of your life, and your suffering.
