    Description

    Man’s Search For Meaning, written by Viktor E. Frankl, is a gripping personal account, chronicling the struggle to survive at a Nazi concentration camp, which helped the author develop his psychotherapeutic method and logotherapy.

    Summary Of The Book

    On the surface, Frankl’s Man’s Search For Meaning is a memoir about surviving the Holocaust. On a philosophical level however, the author uses his experiences to identify psychological reactions to the terrors of a concentration camp, which were experienced by his fellow inmates. These experiences helped Frankl develop his psychotherapeutic methods, which would later help him become an important figure in the existential therapy arena.

    The first part is titled, Experiences In A Concentration Camp. In this section, Frankl begins his memoir by vividly describing some of the horrific events that occurred in various concentration camps. Frankl was a neurologist and psychiatrist. As a result, he was sent to various camps to treat sick and ailing inmates. During his three years in captivity, Frankl paid particular attention to the behaviour of various inmates. From his observations, he made some significant deductions, which contributed to the humanistic movement.

    Firstly, he realized that inmates who comforted others seemed to endure the trauma better and were more likely to survive. On the contrary, inmates who had become physically and psychologically overpowered by their circumstances, were most likely to die. Frankl also identified three common psychological reactions experienced by most inmates. He pointed out that upon first entering the camp, individuals experience a shock. After acclimating themselves to camp life, inmates develop an apathetic response, while only caring about the survival of their close relatives and friends. Frankl termed the final reaction as depersonalization, in which the inmate experiences bitterness and moral deformity.
    In the second part titled, Logotherapy in a Nutshell, Frankl talks in detail about various aspects of logotherapy, and how the meaning of life can be obtained from such harrowing experiences.

    Man’s Search For Meaning has sold more than ten million copies worldwide. It has also been translated into over 20 languages, and can be found in many influential book club lists.

    Good one to read on self-help (non-fiction)

    Why I enjoyed reading this book:
    The book is easy and quick read
    The first part of the book talks about the various aspects of concentration camp during Second World War without making it more complicated
    The second part of it talks about the logotheraphy – which deals with the aspect of how a person has to find about him/herself
    This book also deals with suffering and as to how one has to see the suffering and how one needs to overcome the same by understanding the same
    I didn’t come across...

    Worst quality

    My suggestion is that don't buy books from Flipkart because of the price looks cheap as these books seems printed locally and the quality is no good. For this book I ordered the paper quality is so poor that one side printing is visible from otherside for most of the pages making the whole content clumsy.
    And as expected I didn't receive any mail to rate & review the product; seems that fk is aware of the quality of products they are selling.

    Slightly disappointed

    The first part of the when the narrator was in concentration camp was intensifying and mesmerising but as the story moves further the story books gets tedious and monotonous.And also the delivery book given by these flipkart officials in truly vitiated and y low quality.Overall I wasted my grand total of 215 RS/- on this small book.I regret buying from flipkart.

    Q:is the book really a pocket book or did I ordered a different version? Its too small by dimensions!
    A:Yes, it's relatively small book. Has only 155 pages. And the reason is, the book deals with mainly two things—one, author's experiences in the concentration camp, & second the concept of Logotherapy.
