  • Man's Search For Meaning

    Viktor E. Frankl

    Product Code: AAZPQ
    Hardback
    A prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in Auschwitz coped (or didn't) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest - and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances. The sort of person the prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not of camp influences alone. Only those who allowed their inner hold on their moral and spiritual selves to subside eventually fell victim to the camp's degenerating influence - while those who made a victory of those experiences turned them into an inner triumph. Frankl came to believe man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. This outstanding work offers us all a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the art of living.

    This book has no claims to be fun or more interesting... In fact, it's so boring it will send you to sleep. There's absolutely nothing that will stimulate the senses.

    It will afford you much sleep and copious amounts of pointless knowledge: from the intricate details of the Belgian political crisis from 2007-2011 to an overview of railway gauges, there's so much for you to absorb while you drift into the land of nod...
