Neurologist and psychologist, Viktor Frankl uses his years in concentration camps as evidence that people can overcome suffering by choosing their reactions and finding meaning in their struggles. His theory of logotherapy focuses on searching for meaning and not just happiness.
I picked this up after I saw many wise quotes by Frankl in a book we used at a training I attended. The quotes spurred a curiosity, and I sought out this book. The first half was based on Frankl's experience in concentration camps (descriptive, but not overwhelmingly so), and the second focused on his theory of logotherapy. Both were valuable and interesting. While I enjoyed listening to this, I think it would be a good book to have on hand for reference.
