"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."
"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 "Frankl still has much to teach the world."
--Meghan Cox Gurdon, Wall Street Journal "Man's Search for Meaning is a book to read, to cherish, to debate, and one that will ultimately keep the memories of the victims alive."
--John Boyne, from the Foreword "An enduring work of survival literature."
--New York Times "One of the ten most influential books in America."
