Man's Search for Meaning


Show Synopsis

Based on his experiences in Nazi death camps, including Auschwitz, from 1942 to 1945, Frankl's timeless memoir and meditation on finding meaning in the midst of suffering argues that man cannot avoid suffering but can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose.

why read Frankl's book

This is an important work, both the first half about his time in the Nazi concentration camps, and the seond half that explains his philosophy on "meaning".

This books reputation had reached me years ago after reading the '7 Habits of Highly Effective People.' It is a great book for anyone interested in getting a healthy perspective on their life. It is two books in one. The first part about the authors time in a concentration camp and then about how this experience was implemented into his medical practice. There is a great bit in the book when he states his belief that no matter what happens to you in life you can always choose how you respond.
