Exceptional reflection on the meaning of life!Victor Frankl has remarkably offered some answers to some of the important questions of existentialism. His brief description of the life in concentration camps during World War 2 plunges the readers in some of the worst tribulations that humans can experience. He introduces the concept of logotherapy which emphasizes the ability of men to overcome the most difficult situations. He discusses the principle of responsibleness which should be perceived as the cornerstone of our deeds. He also presents practical examples of the ways to find meaning in our life. While psychoanalysis focuses on studying the past, he proposes logotherapy which focuses on the mental attitude to find meaning in everything and look forward to the future. I would strongly recommend this book to whoever struggles with the meaning of life, to students in psychology, and everyone.5He lost everything including his loved ones and I was amaze thatThis book is for anyone who want to alleviate the hardships and difficulties that he or she is undergoing or had already underwent through it.This book provides us with the harrowing tales of Dr. Victor Frankl and other victims of the holocaust. He told us of the appalling life in the Nazi concentration camps where they were treated harshly and that word is even an understatement to describe their ordeal. They were stripped of everything: their wealth, identity and their very own dignity. However, according to Frankl, one can be stripped of everything but there is one thing that they cannot be stripped of, and that is the freedom to choose how we react to our sufferings. Hence, he introduces to us Logotherapy where as opposed to other philosophers perception on handling sufferings, Frankl uses the will to meaning. Finding meaning to this life and finding meaning to even our sufferings. Because once we find its meaning it ceases to be a suffering as we know its purpose already.I was prompted to read this book because it was mentioned in the book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey in the chapter of his book Proactive. When I searched it on Goodreads, I was inclined to read it because it tells the story of one doctor who specialises in psychology who was a victim of the holocaust. He lost everything including his loved ones and I was amaze that, according to the book s description, he had a method of coping up even the pain that is as excruciating as that.The book enlightens me on many things and most importantly it reinforces the things that I learned on my previous readings that were related to the subject and genre of this book. If there was one thing that I don t like about it, it is the medical jargons that were used in it, because I find it difficult to comprehend some of the chapters due to it. But that is only light compared to the enlightenment given by this book.This is a must for everyone. Especially those who have lost the meaning and purpose to life and those who are currently being tested with difficulties because you can relate a lot of things to what Dr. Frankl had went through. I bet what we are undergoing right now is a microcosm to what he had experienced during the holocaust.4Better the second time aroundThe book is in two sections. Part one describes the author's time in WWII concentration camps, and part two is a short description of Frankl's Logotherapy school of psychology. When I read I read this years ago I enjoyed the author's insights and observations in the first section, but I don't think I even made it through the second. I did read section two this time around, but still most of the book's value to me was in section one.The main idea Frankl contributes is; life is worth living even in suffering. In an unbearable situation, there are glimpses of purpose and beauty. And, should one survive such an experience, life does go on.4No literary "treat" per se, Frankl's memoir on Auschwitz followed by his brainchild, Logo-Therapy (fundamentals).I can't grade it down because Frankl is a better psychiatrist than a writer. Sometimes his sentences are ordered in a way that throws me off, but this man survived Auschwitz and developed a deep understanding for the meaning in a man's life. Each person must find her or his meaning. Frankl will get you well started on this journey.The book is in two parts, broken nearly into halves. 1st half: Experience in Nazi concentration camps. (Graphic, but not nearly so much so as, say, Wiesel's "Night." 2nd half is what kept him going day after day, his "need" to survive. That need was his purpose. He believed he had something to give the world, something it really needed. That something was the psychology branch of his own creation, which he called Logo-therapy. Logo-therapy differs from "analytical" forms for psychology in that it forces you to find (and pursue) your individual (unfulfilled) purpose or meaning in life.5One Man's AnswerMr. Frankel's answer to the, "Why am I here?" question is both thoughtful and thought provoking. It is shaped in large measure by having survived the holocaust. His position is one of unshakable hope in the face of what can only be described as the ultimate hopeless situation. His factual description of life in the Nazi camps is both horrific and fascinating as the backdrop for his philosophy. It is not so much a "preach," as it is a discourse on why he feels the way he does. He is less selling a philosophy and more explaining how he arrived at it. I found it interesting that the question he addresses is "Why am I here?" and not "Why are we here?". It makes his answer more personal and more accessible and actionable by the individual reader without sacrificing its applicability to the collective "Man" in the title.4Essential read for every human.Viktor says in the intro that his intention isn t to document the atrocities of the holocaust, but rather to explain how he found purpose for living in the midst of WWII concentration camps. He does a great job giving the right amount of details to allow you to see the beauty in his ideas in contrast to the conditions that created them, without creating too much emotional stress on the reader. If you have shied away from holocaust books in the past because of how heavy the topic is, you don t have to cross this one off your list. It is a beautiful and important book.5This review is for the edition only, not the material itself.Many people far more erudite than I have already written about the contents of this book; I am only writing about the edition itself. After owning and reading the trade paperback, I decided I wanted a hardcover edition for my library. This is a beautiful book, bound in cloth with the author and title embossed on the cover and spine in silver. There is no dust jacket. This edition includes photographs, essays, and letters the original does not, making this an interesting supplemental read for deeper understanding of Dr. Frankl's ideas. I highly recommend this edition as a gift or to add a lovely volume to your own library.5Through Speechless Atrocities Comes True UnderstandingThis was an excellent book to read because history seems to leave out a lot of personal details of how people dealt with being thrown in the "death camps" in WW II. This man was strong enough to figure out how to survive when so many did not. Of course, he points out that there was definitely luck involved.It's amazing to read the details of the daily struggles the inmates went through. The perserverance it must have taken to keep moving even when your body has wasted away to almost nothing must have been beyond extraordinary.I read the book because the title caught my attention. I didn't have any idea of what it was about and found I was curious about it's meaning. Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the latter half of the book seemed to ramble on a bit in areas that weren't as interesting to me. I'm sure if I was more into the field of psychology, I might find it quite intriguing.If you like history and would like an intimate look at a prisoner's personal view of the "inside" of a concentration camp, I recommend this book. I found that his teachings did affect me in the end. It did make me ask some deep questions of myself. It also makes me hope that we, as human beings, recognize that WE can and will do atrocious things to each other, but that with examples like this, WE work together to never allow it to happen again.4Will have to read againI would read, stop and come back so feel I need to come back to the book again to grasp more of the nuggets within, but clearly, the biggest nugget is man's ability to choose his response to his circumstances which is how he has the ability to retain his dignity. I am in the middle of a couple of other books which all point to how does each individual cope with the struggle between striving for more (things, greatness, fulfillment, whatever it is) and being content with what you have now and does that contentment prevent you from achievement or allow for greater achievement? Clearly in this book he is demonstrating that attitude towards suffering is the primary determinative factor in surviving and even thriving in such harsh circumstances.4It's one small boat, in one small slice of time, with an end we do not knowWe search for meaning. Frankl describes his path for finding it and no one can argue that he paid an incredibly heavy price to find wisdom. Yet are the things he found universal? Do they apply to everyone? Maybe or maybe most. Human life can be viewed from many dimensions and I am not convinced that humans are any closer to God than any other living species. God has placed us in a harsh universe and an inevitable outcome for all. There are small thinks between the beginning and end of our lives, and Frankl tries to explain or rationalize the small things he found. Some of them are inspiring.5
