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.

Chronology of Viktor Frankl's Life and of the Holocaust

"...It seems to me that [the book] could be particularly resonant among adolescents struggling with issues of meaning and purpose in their lives, especially at a time when different forms of bullying (including cyber-bullying) are all too prevalent in schools, and hate speech and hate crimes targeting any number of groups are on the uptick...With this new YA edition, making Frankl's work available to younger audience, [these] lessons become part of the legacy from one generation to another. We're never too old-or too young-to learn, not just the importance of meaning, but the meaning of tolerance and meaningfulness." -Psychotherapy Networker

"This introduction will encourage young readers not only to read Man's Search for Meaning, but to pursue subjects of interest and keep memories alive." -Association of Jewish Libraries
