Yes to Life

In Spite of Everything

Author: Viktor E. Frankl   Introduction by: Daniel Goleman

Extraordinary uncovered work by the 16-million-copy bestselling author of Man’s Search For Meaning

Eleven months after his liberation from Auschwitz, Viktor E. Frankl held a series of public lectures in Vienna. The psychologist, who was to become world famous, explained his central thoughts on meaning, resilience and the importance of embracing life even in the face of great adversity. Frankl then edited those lectures into a short book, which was published in Austria only in 1946. Published for the very first time in English, Frankl’s words resonate as strongly today as they did then. He offers an insightful exploration of the maxim “Live as if you were living for the second time,” and unfolds his basic conviction that every crisis also includes an opportunity. Despite the unspeakable horrors in the camp, Frankl learnt from his fellow inmates that it is always possible to say “yes to life”—a profound and timeless lesson for us all.

A new introduction by acclaimed author Daniel Goleman explores Frankl’s thought and sets the book in the context of our times.
