This is an amazing and fascinating book by a man who lost both his parents, brother and wife through the brutal cruelties of the Nazi torturers and exterminators, and who was deprived of everything except an almost meaningless existence. From deep meditation on his own plight, Dr Frankl has worked out a technique of what he calls logo therapy. Nothing is more moving and more enlightening than the way in which this brilliant psychiatrist has proved the worth of his theories by the relief they have brought to others. As a long-time prisoner in concentration camps, he found himself stripped to bare existence. Every possession was lost, every value destroyed. Experiencing hunger, pain and brutality and every hour expecting extermination, this man found life worth preserving. What he says is worth listening to, as it is a gem of dramatic narrative, focused on the deepest of human problems.
