Man's Search for Meaning

Viktor Frankl

Man's Search for Meaning

Recommendation inspired by:
The myth of Sisyphus - Alex Gendler

Why we love this book:

Victor Frankl's chilling first-hand account of life in a concentration camp during World War II is equal parts devastating and profound. Throughout the book, Frankl urges us to remember that we cannot avoid suffering; we can only control how we respond to it. A powerful testament to humanity's capacity to make meaning out of adversity, this book is a must-read for anyone who has ever considered his or her purpose in life.
