This touched me deeply. The first part of this book is one of the most compelling and moving pieces of writing I've encountered. Viktor E, Frankl was a prominent pyschiatrist and holocaust survivor. Being a psychiatrist offered Frankl a unique insight into how people did (or didn't) survive in the most extreme of circumstances. While some of the pyschiatric thinking in the second part of the book, 'Logotherapy in Nutshell' may be slightly dated, the first part of this book is truly remarkable. I've a full review here but at just over a 150 pages, I would suggest you simply read the book. Surely, it's not too much time to dedicate to a man with Frankl's insight.
