In this book Frankl outlines the reasons for considering his two major competitors. Freud and Adler, only part of the picture and the details of his more encompassing process which he calls Logotherapy. With a push that would give Nietzsche and the Existentialists a run for their money Frankl emphasizes freedom and responsibility as the true basis for human action in whatever condition we find ourselves.
In short, this text may be considered a further elucidation of some of the ideas presented in 'Man's Search For Meaning' the Frankl book that was considered by Time Magazine to be one of the 10 books most necessary to bring with us into the 21st century.
It should be added that there is nothing herein that could not be thoroughly understood by the average reader without any significant knowledge of psychotherapy.
