    Has anyone here read Viktor Frankl's masterpiece: Man's Search for Meaning? I believe this is the book in which he introduced for the first time his theory of: Logotherapy. <p>I have heard that, according to the New York Times, this is one of the most influential books of this century. <p>What are your opinions on this book?

    I read it as a freshman in college.

    At the time, I remember his story (first 1/2 of the book) being very interesting and well told.

    I don't remember too much about his theory of logotherapy, which I believe was outlined in the 2nd half of the book.

    Though, I do remember that it made sense to me at the time. I also remember something about if you want to fall asleep, you should try to stay awake.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful. However, seeing as no one else had replied, I figured my weak reply would be better than nothing.
