Man's Search for Meaning: A Young Adult Edition Reviews

    This is the new YA edition of this classic. I read the original book a few years ago and liked it ok, so I wanted to skim through this one to see how it was adapted for young readers. The section of the book detailing the author's time in the concentration camps was the same (unabridged) version as the original book, which I think was the best part of the original book. However, and thankfully, the second half of the book talking about all the psychology and logotherapy was greatly abridged.

    I had no idea what this book was about. I read it on a friends recommendation. I started to read it to try and fall asleep. Next thing I know it is 2 am and I can't put it down. If you don't want to read about his concentration camp experience, skip the first half. He reaches a significant conclusion about the title.

    I had previously read this magnificent book, but wanted to read the young adult edition because it had pictures of Victor E. Frankel in the concentration camp and after, and I wondered if it would have more discussion or questions about the significance of the title. Yes, it is a good edition to read if you are interested in the meaning of life.

    I recommend this edition for 8th grade and above. There are many high-level philosophical concepts described in advanced language, despite it being a YA edition. It's more abridged than rewritten for a YA audience. If using this text to teach the Holocaust, then focus in on the official memoir section and perhaps skip the supplemental essays unless you can give students time to delve into the content ap
