"We who lived in the concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms--to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."
Yes this book can and should be considered an intro to Logotherapy. Man's search for Meaning does not hide the fact. The brilliant work clearly attempts to intimately deliver, via true life experiences, how man's interpretations of beauty and morality are relative to his given environments, that pain and tortures upon one's will and body can be a stimuli for triggering a spiritual or ethical awakening, perhaps even filling the world with hues and colors never before seen or appreciated: vistas are more awe-inspiring, smiles shared all the more touching, tender tears all the more heart wrenching, a kindly gesture more divine.
Frankl's method of exposition is simple and concise. He didn't write this compact tome with the intent of impressing you with his intellect or to succinctly deliver big, complex ideas. He wrote this to inspire you to just step back and see the big picture.
