    A story and an analysis all wrapped into one.

    I enjoyed the first part of the book. It was a great story of strength, perseverance and the acceptance of fate of a doctor who was a prisoner in Auschwitz. But in part II I wasn't as entranced. I wasn't expecting the book to be laid out this way. It was a psychological analysis of the meaning of life, using prisoner’s experiences in Auschwitz as the platform for his basis on how humans react to the extreme conditions such as the ones they had to overcome at the concentration camps in Germany. It was interesting, don’t get me wrong. I guess I was just looking for something else. I was more interested in the life story of Viktor E. Frankl than anything else.

    Wow!

    Who knew that a book that addresses such darkness (life in the concentration camps, depression, illness and death) could leave a reader feeling so uplifted, inspired and hopeful about the future. This book will be one that I return to again and again.

    Very enlightening

    It was recommend by a psychologist that I read this book. I honestly didn't think that I would get anything out of reading this...needless to say I was very wrong. I realized that Dr.Frankl is a brilliant man. What he says makes perfect sense and I can apply logothreapy to my own life. I took a lot of really good insight out of this book. An easy read as well

    Dr

    Frankl's insightful consideration of 'man's' disillusionment with self and his environment offers a way into being more than what he was told he is. With Buddhist overtones, Frankl recognises the transformative power of suffering. Further his argument that humans respond with responsibleness calls for a knowledge of self, and one's power to determine one's experience of life events. Ultimately we have the ability to respond to life. And that in and of itself is meaningful. A great book to share and discuss with adolescents and other young people. Older generations are likely to find value in its pages too. It's never too late to accept life's challenges as opportunities for transcendance!
