Never before published collection on finding fulfilment and purpose from the multi-million-copy bestselling author Viktor Frankl.

'Viktor Frankl gives us the gift of looking at everything in life as an opportunity' - Edith Eger, bestselling author of The Choice

An inspirational new collection on turning tragedy into triumph by Holocaust survivor and multi-million copy bestselling author of Man's Search for Meaning.

During his lifetime, world renowned psychiatrist and Auschwitz survivor Viktor Frankl had an unshakably optimistic outlook on life. He believed that regardless of circumstance, we can all find meaning and fulfilment in our lives, even in the face of great adversity.

But how much influence do we have on shaping our own lives? How do we seize opportunities and create a meaningful life? And in doing so, can we still respect the dignity of others and tolerate all views?

Published in English for the first time, Embracing Hope shows that by exercising our freedoms, we have a duty and responsibility to ourselves, to others and to the world around us. This collection of timeless lessons offers hope and consolation, admonition and warning, and reveals how to turn tragedy into triumph and lead a fulfilled, purposeful life.

His wife, father, mother and brother all died in Nazi concentration camps, only he and his sister survived, but he never lost the qualities of compassion, loyalty, undaunted spirit and thirst for life (earning his pilot's licence aged 67). He died in Vienna in 1997.

Reviews for Embracing Hope: On Freedom, Responsibility & the Meaning of Life

'Viktor Frankl gives us the gift of looking at everything in life as an opportunity' * Edith Eger, bestselling author of THE CHOICE * '[A] resonant collection of lectures and articles. . . .the message is moving and his lyrical prose will stick in readers’ minds. . . .an inspiring introduction to Frankl’s thinking.' * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY * 'These essays are without a doubt the products of the difficult, often alienating century in which they were written, but the wisdom—and, perhaps more importantly, hope—they offer during a time of competing global emergencies and the threat of human extinction is both comforting and necessary. Decades-old writing that remains timely.' * KIRKUS REVIEWS *
