Publisher Comments:

'Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of those he treated in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory—known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")—holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.

At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey by the Library of Congress and the Book-of-the-Month Club that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.

Born in Vienna in 1905 Viktor E. Frankl earned an M.D. and a Ph.D. from the University of Vienna. He published more than thirty books on theoretical and clinical psychology and served as a visiting professor and lecturer at Harvard, Stanford, and elsewhere. In 1977 a fellow survivor, Joseph Fabry, founded the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy. Frankl died in 1997.

Harold S. Kushner is rabbi emeritus at Temple Israel in Natick, Massachusetts, and the author of several best-selling books, including When Bad Things Happen to Good People.

William J. Winslade is a philosopher, lawyer, and psychoanalyst at the University of Texas Medical School in Galveston.'

V Aeschliman, January 7, 2013 (view all comments by V Aeschliman)
This is probably one of the best books I've ever read. I make it a point of reading it every year or so! 2012 was no exception! I've had the same book since the early 1970's and it's message is as relevant today as when it was written. It is meaningful on numerous levels: spiritually, personally, mentally. The author, Dr. Frankl, wrote it based on his life in several Nazi prison camps during World War 11. He spent time in Auschwitz and Dachau. A few years ago my husband and I visited Dachau which is outside of Munich. What a sobering visit that was! To be standing in the place where such atrocities took place and to know that he was one of many thousands who lived and died there was moving. This is a "mjust read" book for all generations!

This is an amazing, potentially life changing, book. I think it should be required reading in schools today, given the nature of our current society, where so many people suffer from feelings of emptiness and are unable to formulate what their purpose in life is. This is the perfect antidote to materialism. I am advising everyone I care about to read this wonderful little book.
