Audio Book Summary

Man's Search for Meaning is the chilling yet inspirational story of Viktor Frankl's struggle to hold on to hope during the unspeakable horrors of his years as a prisoner in Nazi concentration camps. Through every waking moment of his ordeal, Frankl's training as a psychiatrist lent him a remarkable perspective on the psychology of survival. As a result of these experiences, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning. Frankl's assertion that 'the will to meaning' is the basic motivation for human life has forever changed the way we understand our humanity in the face of suffering.

This revised and updated version includes a new postscript: 'The Case for a Tragic Optimism.'

'An enduring work of survival literature.''New York Times

    Although I am not convinced that logo therapy is the appropriate conclusion, these lived stories and this theory allow for a greater understanding of something that I don't yet fully understand. That could be because I do not have a full understanding of the therapy, though. This book is a necessary read for everyone. It reminds us of what it takes to survive not out of instinct but through hope that we can all find within ourselves. Sometimes our instinct is to just give up, but hope, however quietly, begs that we keep going on.
