Recollections: An Autobiography

Recollections: An Autobiography - Viktor E. Frankl This book is a meandering account of Viktor Frankl's life. It has pictures and accounts of his parents and early childhood. It is not written in a particular chronological order, and events happening later in life pop up all over the place. It is more like a series of conversations that were written down word for word. I was disappointed in the writing, the "all over the map" approach, and didn't really learn much. If you have 15 minutes, skim the book for the pictures and skim the stories. The section on psychotherapy jokes was entertaining. Not much else to read. Read "Man's Search for Meaning" instead.
