"This is one of the most remarkable books I have ever read. It changed my life and became a part of all that I live and all that I teach. It truly is a must-read book. - Susan Jeffers, author of Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway and Embracing Uncertainty. A poignant testimony married to a profound confirmation. In Man's Search for Meaning, Viktor Frankl declares that evil and ennui cannot finally extinguish us. This deeply sensitive book stands as one of the primary building blocks of human consciousness. It is a hymn to the phoenix rising in each of us who choose life before flight. - Brian Keenan, author of An Evil Cradling. Viktor Frankl, who turned his experiences as a prisoner in Auschwitz into the basis for a new school of psychotherapy, is one of the moral heroes of the 20th century. His insights into human freedom, dignity and the search for meaning are deeply humanising, and have the power to transform lives. His works are essential reading for those who seek to understand the human condition. - Chief Rabbi Dr Jonathan Sacks. An enduring work of survival literature - New York Times. If you read but one book this year, Dr Frankl's book should be that one. - Los Angeles Times. Perhaps the most significant thinking since Freud and Adler. Unconditional faith in an unconditional meaning is Dr Frankl's message to the reader. - The American Journal of Psychiatry. Influential and eloquent - Jewish Chronicle"
