Frankl's timeless memoir and meditation on finding meaning in the midst of suffering With a new Foreword by Harold S. Kushner and a new Biographical Afterword by William J. WinsladePsychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America. Beacon Press, the original English-language publisher of Man's Search for Meaning, is issuing this new paperback edition with a new Foreword, biographical Afterword, jacket, price, and classroom materials to reach new generations of readers. Born in Vienna in 1905 Viktor E. Frankl earned an M.D. and a Ph.D. from the University of Vienna. He published more than thirty books on theoretical and clinical psychology and served as a visiting professor and lecturer at Harvard, Stanford, and elsewhere. In 1977 a fellow survivor, Joseph Fabry, founded the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy. Frankl died in 1997.

Viktor Frankl, bestselling author of Man's Search for Meaning, explains the psychological tools that enabled him to survive the Holocaust Viktor Frankl is known to millions as the author of Man's Search for Meaning, his harrowing Holocaust memoir. In this book, he goes more deeply into the ways of thinking that enabled him to survive imprisonment in a concentration camp and to find meaning in life in spite of all the odds. He expands upon his groundbreaking ideas and searches for answers about life, death, faith and suffering. Believing that there is much more to our existence than meets the eye, he says: 'No one will be able to make us believe that man is a sublimated animal once we can show that within him there is a repressed angel.' In Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning, Frankl explores our sometimes unconscious desire for inspiration or revelation. He explains how we can create meaning for ourselves and, ultimately, he reveals how life has more to offer us than we could ever imagine.

MAN'S SEARCH FOR MEANING IN SPIRITUALITY Building On The Work Of Viktor E. Frankl By Psychologist "Dr. Dan" Matzke, PhD TABLE OF CONTENTS Acknowledgments Disclaimer Preface Spirituality: A Working Definition Part One: Introduction On Ultimate Concerns of Spirituality: Awakening Experiences Part Two: Introduction On Spirituality – Enlightening Perspectives: Great Insights & Realizations Of Humanity Addendum: On Mindfulness, Meaning & Spirituality Seven Golden Guidelines For Life & Living Uplifting Perspectives: An Ode PREFACE This book explores matters of “spirituality”… ultimate questions and concerns of humanity. It is written for all of mankind. The work endeavors to explore meaningful matters and experiences… which have been on the hearts and minds of humans throughout all of recorded history. Part One of this book explores what might best be called “awakening experiences” – as they relate to ultimate concerns of spirituality. Part Two considers what might best be described as “enlightening perspectives”: great insights and realizations of humanity. It is hoped that some of these insights and ideas will “strike a cord” and “resonate” with the reader who is seeking truth and meaning, and offer some useful pointers for experiencing a personal sense of spirituality in life and living. SPIRITUALITY: A Working Definition While there are many definitions of spirituality from various view points (including religious, secular, philosophical and scientific), a concise and definitive definition is rather difficult to articulate. Human beings have many unique capacities which encompass and exude spirituality, including self-awareness and situational awareness, the abilities of contemplation and reflection, a seemingly innate curiosity about the unknown... and an ambition to directly apprehend and experience… the true nature of reality and being. In light of these characteristics of the human spirit - within the context of this book - a broad and general working definition of the word spirituality would be that it entails higher human concerns… beyond those dealing with tangible matters. These human concerns take on a marked sense of spirituality especially when they involve the deeply personal sense of a power, order and meaning… which is beyond our full comprehension and understanding… which is beyond our ability to fully capture with words and communicate… oftentimes being more experienced and sensed in intuitive ways… than known in logical, rational and intellectual ways. Acknowledgments: Insights and ideas for this book were drawn from many contemporary writers, who have in turn drawn from many great teachers, seminal thinkers and authors throughout history. Interested readers are referred to the books of Irvin D. Yalom, Alan Watts, Robert C. Solomon, D. T. Suzuki, Carl Rogers, Rollo May, Abraham Maslow and Thich Nhat Hanh. Special Acknowledgment to Viktor E. Frankl. This book “stands on the shoulders” of Dr. Frankl's life and work... in a sincere endeavor to see a little farther and to grasp a little higher.

The Four Disciplines of Executionis about a simple, proven formula for reaching the goals you want to reach as a business or individual. In Covey's experience, the thing that most undermines the ability to execute goals is what he calls the Whirlwind: those urgent tasks that must be done simply to keep an organization alive. As Covey shows, the only way to execute new, important goals is to separate those goals from the Whirlwind. The Four Disciplines allow leaders to create a strategy that requires a change in behaviour, since only by ensuring that everyone on the team understands the goal, knows what to do to reach it and knows whether progress is being made, will a leader produce consistent breakthrough results while sustaining the urgent work of the Whirlwind. The Four Disciplines of Executionare:1. Focus on the Wildly Important; 2. Act on the Lead Measures; 3. Keep a Compelling Scoreboard; 4. Create a Cadence of Accountability. For more than a decade FranklinCovey has been studying what it takes to achieve important goals, and in this book they share success stories from a wide range of companies that have implemented the Four Disciplines to result in greater profits, increased market share and improved customer satisfaction. This way of thinking is essential to any company that wants to not only weather, but thrive in this economy. This edition is specifically adapted for the South Asia market by Rajan Kaicker, CEO of FranklinCovey India, featuring anecdotes and advice to reflect this emerging market.
