This is a true story of a psychiatrist imprisoned in Auschwitz. It's difficult to read due to its painful candor, but leaves you amazed at how human beings can find beauty in life, even in the most awful situations.

A psychological and existential look at life by a man who lived through the Nazi concentration camps. The first part of the book is a description of his experiences... every grim and horrifying detail. The second part of the book is Frankl's existential theory of psychology and finding meaning in life.

The book is split into 2 sections:

1) The author's time at a concentration camp in Auschwitz
2) An explanation of his views on logotherapy, a strain of psychology he developed

It's a bit slow and boring in the 2nd half of the book, nevertheless, there are some important concepts that Frankl goes into, mainly, that even though we have no control over what happens to us in life, we DO have control over how we interpret these forces.

After three grim years at Auschwitz and other Nazi prisons, Dr. Frankl gained freedom only to learn that almost his entire family had been wiped out. But during, and indeed partly because of, the incredible suffering and degradation of those harrowing years, he developed his theory of logotherapy.
