I added an info book to this. it could use some clarification in the info box. b_cubed 16:40, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

That citation is in the book; when I get a chance I'll page through and find it -- 15:00, 27 November 2006 (UTC) (crucible guardian IRL)

It's on page 104 of the Pocket Books 60th Anniversary Edition. This is to satisfy the inquiry regarding the quote (which was accurate) but the citation needed tag is inappropriate here. The entire section is a summary of the book contents--if it's inaccurate, change it, but you don't footnote a summary of a book.--Buckboard 05:44, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:1frankl-book.JPG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:1frankl-book.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 23:54, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Restoring quotations from book[edit]

I have restored the quotes that someone deleted. The person thought they were poorly written. I disagree. I believe all of the quotes are accurate. If they are inaccurate, I think we should correct them but not delete them. I will request the user who deleted them to respond here to discuss and reach consensus before making further changes.

It would be more useful and accurate is page numbers were listed. Guest 02:46, 5 June 2010 ()

What about the nine days[edit]

Frankl has dictated the book in only nine days. what does that mean? Twipley (talk) 03:05, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Publication date[edit]

The original publication date for both the first writing, titled From Death Camp to Existentialism, and the revised and expanded version titled Man's Search for Meaning was 1959 by Beacon Press. The date is clearly stated in the Pocket Book edition that was published in 1963, which I have in my library.

Once again today I stand corrected. I searched a little longer and found that the work was first published in 1946 as trotzdem Ja zum Leben sagen: Ein Psychologe erlebt das Konzentrationslager (translated: ...saying yes to life in spite of everything; A Psychologist Experiences the Concentration Camp).

It is the second-most widely read Holocaust book in the bookstore of Washington's Holocaust Museum.[edit]

Seems to suggest people read the book in the bookstore. I'm guessing it means second most purchased? Thmazing (talk) 19:18, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
