Book Review: Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl

Man's Search for MeaningMan’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Emil Frankl

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve read a lot about Germany during World War II from various perspectives. Frankl’s experience was unique in that at the time of his imprisonment in a succession of concentration camps, he was a practicing psychiatrist who had pioneered a method of therapy (“logotherapy”) that focused on changing our attitudes surrounding unavoidable negative situations in order to make them bearable, from a psychological standpoint. The ideas he presents are simple but paradigm shifting for me. This is a book I would like to read over again, probably several times, in order to get out of it all of the depth that I can.
