Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl

This is two books, really. The first half is an account of Frankl's experience as an inmate of concentration camps in Nazi Germany. The second is an explanation of his theories of psychotherapy. It's certainly unpleasant to read about the horrors he endured, though it is important reading, but combining it with what feels like a hard sell for name-branding his theories as an analyst feels a little like the experience one has when accosted by Scientologists: Bait and switch. If I divided my review, it would be 4 or 5 stars for the first half and 1 or 2 for the second.
