Frankl, V. (1959). Man's search for meaning. New York: Simon and Schuster.

Feeling like life is not worth living and that things are too hard?  Then this book is for you.  This book, a brief account of Dr. Frankl's death camp, experiences, was written in 9 days in 1946.  In the concentration camp, several members of his family were murdered including his wife.  The experience was filled with suffering and terror.  Yet, Frankl was able to  come out of the experience with an understanding of the important things in life and lessons on how to deal with extended trauma.  This book is full of hope and lessons for all of us.  In my opinion, it should be a required reading for everyone.
