Publisher's Summary

An audiobook for finding purpose and strength in times of great despair, the international best seller is still just as relevant today as when it was first published.

This seminal audiobook, which has been called “one of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought” by Carl Rogers and “one of the great books of our time” by Harold Kushner, has been translated into more than 50 languages and sold more than 16 million copies. “An enduring work of survival literature”, according to the New York Times, Viktor Frankl’s riveting account of his time in the Nazi concentration camps, and his insightful exploration of the human will to find meaning in spite of the worst adversity, has offered solace and guidance to generations of readers/listeners since it was first published in 1946. At the heart of Frankl’s theory of logotherapy (from the Greek word for “meaning”) is a conviction that the primary human drive is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but rather the discovery and pursuit of what the individual finds meaningful. Today, as new generations face new challenges and an ever more complex and uncertain world, Frankl’s classic work continues to inspire us all to find significance in the very act of living, in spite of all obstacles.

Stop what you’re doing and read this damn book.

I’m a father, son, brother, husband, friend, and foe. I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the question, why do I do the things that I do, and where do I find meaning, for the last decade of my life. Frankl’s text is a weighty start in the right direction. Life is arbitrary, meaning is subjective. There’s no answer. Herein lies a few clues and suggestions.

Great listen and contemplative

Really made me stop and think, quite a few times. A look into what people dealt with in concentration camps and then getting into the head of those involved
