Man's Search for Meaning
I'm not sure how I have made it this far without having read Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning but I just finished it and wished I had read it a long time ago.
Frankl endured the suffering of the Nazi concentration camps during WWII and he shares his experiences and observations in this work. This work gives a summary of his work on logostherapy, a way of helping people who suffer find meaning in their lives.
The holocaust is a fascinating subject for me. As I read Frankl's account it kept dawning on me the magnitude of what those in concentration camps were able to achieve and accomplish in the midst of extreme suffering. In fact, it brought to light that those who lived in the camps were mightier than the guards who stood watched.
This book should be read.
