Reviews

One of the ten most influential books in America. --Library of Congress/Book-of-the-Month Club "Survey of Lifetime Readers"

"Viktor Frankl's timeless formula for survival. One of the classic psychiatric texts of our time, Man's Search for Meaning is a meditation on the irreducible gift of one's own counsel in the face of great suffering, as well as a reminder of the responsibility each of us owes in valuing the community of our humanity. There are few wiser, kinder, or more comforting challenges than Frankl's." --Patricia J. Williams, author of Seeing a Color-Blind Future: The Paradox of Race

"Dr. Frankl's words have a profoundly honest ring, for they rest on experiences too deep for deception... A gem of a dramatic narrative, focused upon the deepest of human problems." --Gordon W. Allport, from the Preface

"An enduring work of survival literature." --The New York Times

"[Man's Search for Meaning] might well be prescribed for everyone who would understand our time." --Journal of Individual Psychology

"An inspiring document of an amazing man who was able to garner some good from an experience so abysmally bad... Highly recommended." --Library Journal

"One of the great books of our time." --Harold S. Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People

"One of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought in the last fifty years." --Carl R. Rogers (1959)
