Man’s Search for Meaning, Viktor Frankl

Man's Search for Meaning on AmazonThis is probably a book that we should all read at least once during our lifetimes. Mentioned by Richard Brown, founder of The Property Voice, as one of his top five books in the Property Tribes Essential Book List, Man’s Search For Meaning: The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust is a classic in terms of understanding the bare essence of human nature.

Despite what I have stated above about the idea that we should all read it, I have to confess that I haven’t. A shameful confession accompanied by a suitably contrite sentiment, because a book doesn’t get over one hundred printings in English, translated into well over twenty languages or sell over nine million copies for nothing. If you don’t know anything at all about the book or the author, Viennese psychiatrist Viktor Frankl survived the holocaust and incarceration in a concentration camp in World War II. This is his account of his observations of how people coped in unthinkable conditions. It’s unlikely to make for easy reading but will be a valuable insight into finding purpose beyond the self.

Richard Brown’s #3 book in the Property Tribes Essential Property Book List: “if you don’t have a clear purpose then you have nothing…and be grateful for what you do have!
