Man’s search for meaning by Viktor Frankl

From conversations I have had with colleagues, I’ve come very late to this classic book. Written by the father of ‘Logotherapy’, this Viennese jewish psychotherapist shows us in stark and humbling ways how his philosophical idea about ‘Purpose’ helped him (and others) survive four concentration camps. The second part describes and illustrates ‘Logotherapy’ in action with many and varied case-studies.

Whilst I’m told this is essential reading in the self-knowledge/personal improvement and motivational world’s, underpinning current thinking, its relevance to how teams can manage an endeavour in the darkest of times is striking. And the insights about the modern plague of unhappiness caused by an absence of purpose is a powerful reminder about where human success and happiness actually stem from.
