Original book summary overview:

Victor Frankl's 1955 work Man's Search for Meaning is considered a modern-day classic - and with good reason. A clinical psychologist with a doctorate in philosophy, Frankl recounts his harrowing experience in concentration camps in World War II. Even within the concentration camp, Frankl argues, a person can find meaning in their life, and correspondingly, a reason to go on.
