Add Meaning to Your Life by Studying and Applying the Easy-to-Understand Principles of "Man's Search for Meaning", by Viktor E. Frankl

"Man's Search for Meaning", by 20th Century Psychiatrist and concentration camp survivor Viktor E. Frankl, which has sold more than 12 Million Copies worldwide since its writing in 1946, is a landmark and seminal must-read for the general population. It is authentic, p...
"Man's Search for Meaning", by 20th Century Psychiatrist and concentration camp survivor Viktor E. Frankl, which has sold more than 12 Million Copies worldwide since its writing in 1946, is a landmark and seminal must-read for the general population. It is authentic, practical, and with down-to-earth and simple-to-understand, ready-to-be-applied contents. It is believeable based on the history and character of its author, who chose to help his soon-to-be-imprisoned parents and family members as they faced imprisonment in the Nazi concentration camp system in 1942, instead of escaping his native Austria on a Visa to the U.S. The first part gives the history of his 3-year imprisonment and miraculous survival in extermination camps, using such mental practices as thinking of his beloved wife and helping his fellow prisoners with his skills as a nuerologist and psychiatrist. This is certainly a story of "mind over matter", if ever there was one. Only 1 in 28 prisoners survived the Nazi death-camp system. Part I of the book is about these prisoner experiences, and Part II is an explanation of Frankl's self-created school of psychiatry, called Logotherapy, which contains the "how-to-live" section of the book. I highly recommend this book for all. It can prove to be highly useful for providing insights and advice for those with depression, aggression, addiction(s), guilt, and those facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles and inescapable suffering, as it will guide the reader on HOW to find meaning in suffering, and also in more positive experiences such as achieving and loving. Must read and refer to. Recommended BUY and HOLD!!

Great introduction to logotherapy!

Man's search for meaning truly conveys that war is man's ultimate inhumanity to man. With everything lost, and seemingly no future hope, how does one survive? As Frankl himself had to survive he tells us that meaning in life is not found anywhere else but within yoursel...
Man's search for meaning truly conveys that war is man's ultimate inhumanity to man. With everything lost, and seemingly no future hope, how does one survive? As Frankl himself had to survive he tells us that meaning in life is not found anywhere else but within yourself. This also serves a great introduction to logotherapy.

    Read Mans Search for Meaning

    Victor Frankl's book Mans Search for Meaning is a book unlike anything I have ever read before. This book was absolutly phonominal, it had such a great message throughout every hardship revealed in this book. I really enjoyed learning about Victor's experiences in a concentration camp along with the psycological aspects of his experiences. This book also taught me a lot about the Nazi concentration camps that I didn't know very much about. Overall reading the book was a learning experience and it was a great book.
