Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning
Viktor Frankl is known to millions as the author of Man's Search for Meaning, his harrowing Holocaust memoir. In this book, he goes more deeply into the ways of thinking that enabled him to survive imprisonment in a concentration camp and to find meaning in life in spite of all the odds. Here, he expands upon his groundbreaking ideas and searches for answers about life, death, faith and suffering. Believing that there is much more to our existence than meets the eye, he says: 'No one will be able to make us believe that man is a sublimated animal once we can show that within him there is a repressed angel.'
In Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning, Frankl explores our sometimes unconscious desire for inspiration or revelation. He explains how we can create meaning for ourselves and, ultimately, he reveals how life has more to offer us than we could ever imagine.

Review: Man's Search For Ultimate MeaningUser Review - Joan Cummings - Goodreads
This is a re-read for me. It comes at a time when meaning in life for me is hard to find. Frankl recalls his time in a Nazi concentration camp and comes to understand human nature quite adeptly. Read full review

Man's Search for Meaning conveys a similar message. This book is more philosophical. Frankl's take on religion is quite interesting though. Read full review
