9780671207823: Man's Search for Meaning: An Introduction to Logotherapy, Revised and Enlarged Edition

A prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in Auschwitz coped (or didn't) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest - and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances. The sort of person the concentration camp prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not of camp influences alone. Frankl came to believe man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. This outstanding work offers us all a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the art of living.

About the Author:

Viktor Frankl was born in Vienna in 1905 and was Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at the University of Vienna Medical School. His wife, father, mother and brother all died in Nazi concentration camps, only he and his sister survived, but he never lost the qualities of compassion, loyalty, undaunted spirit and thirst for life (earning his pilot's licence aged 67). He died in Vienna in 1997.

Review:

"Remarkable...It changed my life and became a part of all that I live and all that I teach." * Susan Jeffers, author of Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway and Embracing Uncertainty * "A poignant testimony...a hymn to the phoenix rising in each of us who choose life before flight." * Brian Keenan, author of An Evil Cradling * "His works are essential reading for those who seek to understand the human condition." * Chief Rabbi Dr Jonathan Sacks * "An enduring work of survival literature." * New York Times * "If you read but one book this year, Dr Frankl's book should be that one." * Los Angeles Times *
