An eminent psychologist and one of the few remaining Holocaust survivors old enough to remember life in the camps, Dr. Edith Eger has worked with veterans, military personnel, and victims of physical and mental trauma. She lives in La Jolla, California. She is the author of the award-winning book The Choice and The Gift.
"The Choice is a gift to humanity. One of those rare and
eternal stories that you don't want to end and that leave you
forever changed. Dr. Eger's life reveals our capacity to transcend
even the greatest of horrors and to use that suffering for the
benefit of others. She has found true freedom and forgiveness and
shows us how we can as well."--Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize
"I'll be forever changed by Dr. Eger's story...The Choice is a reminder of what courage looks like in the worst of times and that we all have the ability to pay attention to what we've lost, or to pay attention to what we still have."--Oprah Winfrey
"This book is partly a memoir and partly a guide to processing trauma. Eger was only sixteen years old when she and her family got sent to Auschwitz. After surviving unbelievable horrors, she moved to the United States and became a therapist. Her unique background gives her amazing insight, and I think many people will find comfort right now from her suggestions on how to handle difficult situations."
