This is an excellent book. I'd even go so far as to recommend this young readers edition over the original. The main text, the memoir of Frankl's experiences in the concentration camps, is left intact. Only the logotherapy text at the end is abridged (and thankfully so, as it's useful in its unabridged form only to those studying the history of psychology).
This memoir is different from other popular Holocaust survivor memoirs because Frankl goes deeper into the questions about why people acted the way they did and the various effects of the war on the human psyche.
Highly recommend. ( )

Usually when a classic is remade for young people it is watered down and material is taken away; but with Man's Search for Meaning: Young Adult Edition, there is more to the story as we not only see the psychologist Viktor Frankl survive the horrors of the concentration camp but also waht happened to him afterward. It is in turns, horrorifying and beautiful. The photographs ground the story in hard, painful reality while his words find ways to still find life worth living. ( )

I am not sure what I expected when I picked up this book, but I did not expect memories and observations of life in a concentration camp by a survivor who happened to be a psychologist. It was a good read—some of the thoughts just hit like a ton of bricks and cannot be escaped. The tone was almost off the cuff, but the material was chilling. One quite casual remark just haunts me; the author said that the people who survived were not “the best among us”. He talked about a shell that prisoners had to develop; that they needed dehumanizing blinders in order to survive the horrors they saw daily—the people who clung to their humanity did not live long. Scary stuff.
One point the author made was very timely (even though he died several years ago). He said he strongly believed that the Statue of Liberty on our east coast should have a counterpart on the wet coast: the Statue of Responsibility. I found that an interesting opinion from someone who had suffered so much. He had even mentioned the difficulty that some survivors experienced as they tried to reenter society: that some carried a grudge—felt that they were owed everything because of everything that had been taken from them. He felt that despite their anger they were not beyond “repair”. He talked about how each person decides how happy or unhappy he shall be and that the decision hinged upon whether the person “wants” or whether he “gives”. The idea was that people who live for the good of others have “purpose” and that “purpose” is the meaning that we unwittingly search for. The Statue of Responsibility would be the reminder that we need to look outside ourselves.
It was mentioned that this is required reading for high school and college and there are numerous ideas that could be explored, but it is thought provoking for everyone. ( )

I've never read a young adult edition before and was a little worried that this would be a "kids version" of Man's Search for Meaning that I couldn't enjoy at 25 years old. So I was happy to find that "Experiences in a Concentration Camp" is unabridged, and while "Logotherapy in a Nutshell" is shortened to make room for supplemental materials (photos, letters, speeches, etc.), I find this edition to be suitable for readers of any age.

Man's Search for Meaning was first published as "A Psychologist Experiences the Concentration Camp" (German translation) and was later called "Say Yes to Life in Spite of Everything". Between these two titles, you get a pretty good feel for what the book is really about. It isn't so much a story of the events of the Holocaust as an intimate account of what it felt like to be in a concentration camp. I found myself appreciating some things I usually took for granted a little more while reading it. Being able to eat when I was hungry. The feeling of going to sleep in a clean, comfortable bed with a full night's sleep ahead. And what stuck with me most was this quote: "Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms--to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way." This is a book that has the power to change your outlook on life, if you choose to let it do so. ( )

While I must applaud any edition of this remarkable book, I am unclear why a "young adult" version is warranted. Could there be a more accessible and readable account of the horrors of the concentration camp? The book is amazing and the author admirable beyond comment. Perhaps there is a fear that the young reader of today would be daunted by the philosophical and psychological fullness of the original. Regardless, this is a fine edition with an approachable presentation and a wonderful introduction and apparatus. ( )
