Frankl, psychologist and author of Man's Search for Meaning (1959), recounts his life in Austria from his birth in 1905 to the end of World War II. Even as an adolescent, Frankl was drawn to the workings of the human mind. He devoted himself to the study of psychology while a very young man and was mentored by pioneer psychologist Alfred Adler. Frankl, though, eventually rejected key tenets of Adler's teachings, and the two split forever. On his own, Frankl developed logotherapy, a combination of psychology and philosophy, to help people search for values and meaning in a world often devoid of both. But then Frankl, a Jew, came up against Hitler's Anschluss of his homeland and, later, the concentration camps and their attendant horrors, putting Frankl's logotherapy to the supreme test. An enlightening look at an important twentieth-century intellectual. Brian McCombie
