Publisher's Summary

Extraordinary uncovered work by the 16 million copy best-selling author of Man’s Search For Meaning.

Eleven months after his liberation from Auschwitz, Viktor E. Frankl held a series of public lectures in Vienna. The psychologist, who was to become world famous, explained his central thoughts on meaning, resilience and the importance of embracing life even in the face of great adversity. 

Published for the very first time, Frankl’s words resonate as strongly today as they did in 1946. He offers an insightful exploration of the maxim ‘live as if you were living for the second time’ and unfolds his basic conviction that every crisis also includes an opportunity. Despite the unspeakable horrors in the camp, Frankl learnt from his fellow inmates that it is always possible to say 'yes to life' - a profound and timeless lesson for us all.

An unexpected pleasure

How incredible it is to hear a new Viktor Frankl book which has so much import for a Covid19 world. It was written in 1946, but it feels as if it was written in 2020 and it it so important for the world right now.

inspiring

Frankl was truly a brave and inspiring man. This book has given me insight into finding meaning in suffering. I listened to this audio book during the peek of the covid 19 pandemic. It has allowed me to see that I can say yes to life despite being isolated from those I love. The audio book is easy to listen to .

Much needed perspective on our petty sorrows and frustrations.

Thought provoking and salutary. Prompted to ‘read’ Frankl and this publication specifically having heard him / it being discussed on Radio 4’s ‘It’s all in the mind’ programme this week. So glad I did. I’m a clinical psychologist and I think this book could be very helpful for those who struggle to see the way out of the paralysis created by a depressive or hopeless state of mind. It’s not an easy book to listen to but the effort pays dividends.
