Summary, etc.:
"Eleven months after his liberation from Auschwitz, Viktor E. Frankl held a series of public lectures in Vienna, published here for the first time. 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"-- Provided by publisher.
Frankl's seminal work was in manuscript form when he was arrested and deported to Auschwitz in 1942. During his imprisonment, he recreated and supplemented his theories, and it became the foundation of Man's search for meaning, written in nine days after his liberation. Eleven months later Frankl held a series of public lectures in Vienna. Those lectures are published here in English for the first time. -- adapted from jacket.
