An in depth view on the philosophy of Victor Frankl, the founder of logotherapy. The books explains how Frankl’s philosophy helped him not only endure the nazi concentration camps, but to do so without losing his sense of self. A powerful read on the strength of a persons mind, and our ability to overcome the gravest of circumstances. Frankl’s core tennet, “No one can take away my choice over my own actions”, is both thought-provoking, and empowering. The authors do a fantastic job of describing both the man himself, and his philosophy.
