Man's Search for Meaning is the author's recollection of his days spent in Auschwitz and other Nazi concentration camps during World War II. In the book, Viktor Frankl introduces his theory called logotherapy, which states that humans are driven by what they find meaningful on a personal level. The theory opposes Freud's view that humans are hedonistic creatures and Adler's view that power is the driving force of the human race. In Man's Search for Meaning Frankl tells us about his observations in the camp. He noticed that the longest survivors in the camps were those who managed to have a sense of control over their dismal surroundings. Not the ones who were strong physically. He found that the capability to decide your attitude in a given situation is the greatest strength in a person. The author portrays the true art of living in a profound way, giving you a whole new perspective on life, no matter what your circumstances. The book is a story of hope that has been one of the most influential books in the world. The exported edition of the book was published in 2008 and is available in paperback. Key Features: By 1997, the year Viktor Frankl died, the book had reached sales figures of over 10 million copies sold in 24 different languages. Man's Search for Meaning is based on the three years Frankl suffered in the camps, while he watched his pregnant wife, brother and parents slowly die as the days passed.

Viktor Frankl was born in 1905 and was a Viennese psychiatrist and neurologist who developed the theory of logotherapy. Logotherapy is a type of existential analysis. He was a student of the University of Vienna where he studied medicine, focusing on the subjects of suicide and depression. Although he was influenced by Alfred Adler and Sigmund Freud, his work in the field of psychiatry was very different from theirs. He has won many illustrious awards in his time. He passed away on September 2, 1997.
