  "Mans search for meaning" by jmonsour (see profile) 11/20/09

Book provided some discussion, however it was too focused on theory for me.

 
  "A very thought-provoking nonfiction book with deep meanings" by sevenlady (see profile) 01/20/10

If you wish to have a deep discussion about Life and its meaning, this book is a nonfiction account about how a doctor was able to survive the emotional and physical atrocities of the Holocaust. He describes with great detail the day-to-day suffering and what he learned as a psychologist about how to handle suffering. It is not an easy read on any level due to the gloomy and horrifying details of the situation inside a death camp.

 
  "Good book for discussion" by mindysauve (see profile) 09/29/12

Not a riveting read - in fact after the first half, it was much like a textbook on psychology - and not so enjoyable. Yet - the basis for his theories was extremely interesting and sparked some fairly good book club discussion. It's definitely more on the "intellectual" side of a read than the "enjoyable" side of a read, so having said that up front - I WOULD still tell book clubs to throw it into the mix. It's only 165 pages long and it will open up some interesting perspectives on what motivates us in our lives.

 
  "man's search for meaning" by asmattingly (see profile) 03/14/15

An important, though not easy, book to read. Has many life - impacting concepts about survival and one's personal meaning. Relateable, significant, provocative.
