I liked this book from start to finish. It's not that long...only 149 pages. There is a preface by Gordon Allport that introduces Dr. Frankl to the reader and explains what is to come in the rest of the book. Then part one is the author's recollections from being in a concentration camp in World War II. That was the first time I have read a first-person account of experiences in a concentration camp. Then part two is the author's explanation of logotherapy. I found the whole book very easy to read and understand, not "over my head" at all. The author's style of writing is very suited for the common person. What I liked the most was that in spite of everything he went through, he still found reason to live and survive.
