Synopsis

16 MILLION COPIES SOLD



'A book to read, to cherish, to debate, and one that will ultimately keep the memories of the victims alive' John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas





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 concentration camp prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not of camp influences alone. 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.

Viktor Frankl was born in Vienna in 1905 and was Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at the University of Vienna Medical School. His wife, father, mother and brother all died in Nazi concentration camps, only he and his sister survived, but he never lost the qualities of compassion, loyalty, undaunted spirit and thirst for life (earning his pilot's licence aged 67). He died in Vienna in 1997.

Customer Reviews

Its an essential read - devastating but we must not forget either that humans are readily able to commit these sort of crimes and, that humans can choose how they resist, respond and repair and how they improve their societies and themselves, every day. A wonderful book and a wonderful life, after all that!

After I read this book I went back and bought at least 4 more during the last past years. It is a book everyone should have read. It is so rich in human experience, so humble and wise. It will make you reflect on life in an essential way, it will make you more grateful for what you have and see the value of life itself. It is likely to make better choices in your life, with your time. Read it.
