    "This is a classic from the Dalai Lama. It is suitable for any background, and shouldn't conflict with your personal religious beliefs. Many readers have reported being helped with problems with bad temper and depression, so if you read it with an open mind and a willingness to change yourself you could find this to be a great book."

    "The first half of the book was very intriguing. Following the path of some of the most successful people in the world to see how it happened is very interesting. i could have just read 100 more of these stories. While reading it I started to think about every time I achieved success, and all of the variables I had no control over that helped lead to that success."

    "Frankl, who survived the concentration camps, writes that suffering is inevitable and that avoiding suffering is futile. Rather, one should be worthy of one's suffering and make meaning of it instead of surrendering to nihilism, bitterness and despair. Poetically writes about how man can make meaning from suffering."
