Translated into at least 24 languages and with over 12 million copies sold worldwide, Man's Search for Meaning is one of the seminal pieces of literature to emerge from the Second World War.
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.
"An enduring work of survival literature" * New York Times * "If you read but one book this year, Dr Frankl's book should be that one." * Los Angeles Times * "His works are essential reading for those who seek to understand the human condition." * Chief Rabbi Dr Jonathan Sacks * "Influential and eloquent." * Jewish Chronicle * "Perhaps the most significant thinking since Freud and Adler." * The American Journal of Psychiatry *
