Editorial Reviews

Review

"Finding Meaning in Life, at Midlife and Beyond introduces the reader to the theory of logo-therapy as applicable to both professionals and the general public. Professor Guttmann offers an important perspective in this book for persons willing to learn how to find meaning in later years of life. Aging does not diminish one's quest and interest in life-but provides it with new designs and challenges accumulated over the years."-Zev Harel, Ph.D., Professor, School of Social Work, Cleveland State University

Review

"Using a unique mix of serious socio-psychological theories, along with real life stories and experiences with treating older persons, Professor Guttmann's book is a tour-de-force of humanistic thought, which provides an approach to a meaningful and optimistic future to every aging person, and every aging society."

(

Dr. Israel Doron, Senior Lecturer, Department of Gerontology & School of Social Work, The University of Haifa, Israel

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Professor Guttmann's new book in logotheraphy is a welcome addition to the fast growing literature on the main tenets of logotherapy by its founder,Professor Viktor E.Frankl.
Written by one of his disciple and personal friends,this book offers a new,fresh,optimistic,spiritual and positive outlook on life.
This book emphasizes the need to say "Yes" to life at a time when we begin to question the purpose and the meaning of our existence.
Professor Guttmann's book provides the general and the professional
reader answers based on practical and theoretical knowledge derived from the realms of psychology, philosophy,gerontology and religion along with case illustrations and vignettes.
This book helps one to cope with the danger of losing his or her soul in midlife and in old age in our machine-based world.
As Such this book is a valuable guide to everyone,while to members of all the helping professions it is a must.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Billy Idol on October 21, 2008
Format: Hardcover
David Guttmann does a fine job of taking philosophy, logotherapy, and real life issues we will all face in old age and painting a very optimistic outlook on our second half of life. He provides other perspectives that value self responsibility and free will. As a social worker working with the elderly, I really appreciate his approach and empowering outlook on growing old. I think it is a must have for anyone going into gerontology or working with older people in any profession. It is certainly applicable to all adults as we will all be faced with death at some point.
