"Analyzes life as we are living it, and the analysis is truthful and profound."—New York Times
Loneliness, boredom, emptiness: These are the complaints that Rollo May encountered over and over from his patients.

Man's Search for Himself is an illuminating view of our predicament in an age of overwhelming anxieties and gives guidance on how to choose, judge, and act during such times.

“Dr. May's book is in the best sense popular. Touched with humor and imagination, infused with culture, it is a book which any person not too frightened and not too complacent should find a storehouse of helpfulness.”
