Translated into at least 24 languages and with over 12 million copies sold worldwide, Man's Search for Meaning is one of the seminal pieces of literature to emerge from the Second World War.
Viktor Frankl was born in Vienna in 1905 and was Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at the University of Vienna Medical School. His wife, father, mother and brother all died in Nazi concentration camps, only he and his sister survived, but he never lost the qualities of compassion, loyalty, undaunted spirit and thirst for life (earning his pilot's licence aged 67). He died in Vienna in 1997.
Remarkable...It changed my life and became a part of all that I
live and all that I teach.
An enduring work of survival literature.
*New York Times*
A book to read, to cherish, to debate, and one that will ultimately keep the memories of the victims alive
*John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas*
I have loved this book for so many years, and I think every human being should read it.
Viktor Frankl...one of the moral heroes of the 20th century. His insights into human freedom, dignity and the search for meaning are deeply humanizing, and have the power to transform lives. His works are essential reading for those who seek to understand the human condition.
