Professor of neurology and psychiatry, Victor Frankl, relates his vision of "Logotherapy" to his readers. His work on Logotherapy was initiated, then halted, due to spending several years in concentration camps. His work was taken away from him but he managed to keep handwritten notes, and his will to survive to finish his work, on Logotherapy. This is not a self-pity book yet a truly uplifting reference book for anyone searching for the meaning of life. Great Read!

Frankl addresses the deepest of man's concerns for life, that of meaning and suffering. Reflecting back upon his time spent in Autzwichz and Buchenwald to support his thesis he defines a clear approach to psychological therapy with out the use of drugs to confront life and find contentment. The answer will surprise you and the truth, almost common sense like with shock you. Hinting unintentionally along the lines of Eastern philosophies this book is a good read not just for the historical content, but also for the common sense.
