Victor showed an exceptional insights on how a human can survive extreme conditions by having meaning for his life which empower human being to keep up...
As the author wrote:"Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation."

The author concluded that the great task for any person is to find meaning in his or her life by one of following ways:
- Creating a work or doing a deed;
- Experiencing something or encountering someone; or
- The attitude we take toward unavoidable suffering.

This book is a masterpiece. It is a life changing piece of art. I have read the references for this book and can tell anyone. It is much more valuable and fascinating than I could imagine. We hardly can find better book for people who have any issues to find the purpose of their life. The author has opened a lot of new areas for me to rethink and change my attitude and opinion about. This book is a must for everyone. I would like to express a huge thank you to the author for sharing his experience, knowledge and wisdom.

Viktor Frankl writes in such a candid way about his experiences of being in concentration camps during the Holocaust. The particular significance of this book is in respect of this observations on the human condition during the most horrendous of circumstances. He introduces us to the notion that finding meaning can be found in any place. Folliwing his experience of being in the camps he then returned to his profession of being a psychoanalyst and psychiatrist and he developed logotherapy which focues on helping people to find the purpose and meaning of their own

Really - every one should read this book. Frankl avoids moralising and never tries to garner sympathy for himself or for Jews. Instead he just lays out the lived reality of the tragedy and what how it led him to a new approach to psychotherapy that - rather uniquely - does not require figuring out the original cause of a person's upset.

It won't take you long to read - it's quite thin. Just go do it.

An ultimate book about life and what makes yours or my life worthwhile. Or how to find my own reason to live. It is written by an Auschwitz survivor who tested everything he proposes in the staggeringly terrible hell of concentration camps. I have read this book twice and shall read it again.

This was at times a very uncomfortable read, however, just when I thought I couldn't read anymore, something took hold of me and wanted me to carry on. Very interesting account of life in concentration camps, even this was enough to keep you interested, but with the added extra of how they kept going and its relation to the meaning of life. Great book, stick with it!
