Description of this Book

Introduction by John Boyne A young readers edition of the best-selling classic about the Holocaust and finding meaning in suffering, with a photo insert, a glossary of terms, a chronology of Frankl s life, and supplementary letters and speeches The Library of Congress called it one of the ten most influential books in America; the New York Times pronounced it an enduring work of survival literature; and O, The Oprah Magazine praised it as one of the most significant books of the twentieth century. Man s Search for Meaning has long riveted readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. This new young readers edition brings a beloved classic to a new generation of readers, offering a universal tribute to coping with suffering and finding one s purpose. An abridged text of the original book (emphasizing Frankl s personal story, while omitting some material on his psychological theory of logotherapy) is presented here, along with supplemental materials that vividly bring Frankl s story to life, and a foreword by prominent young adult author John Boyne. Man s Search for Meaning: A Young Readers Edition will help readers ages twelve to eighteen grasp Frankl s enduring lessons on perseverance and strength with clarity and depth.
