Product description

Review

"The Choice will be an extraordinary book on heroism, healing, resiliency, compassion, survival with dignity, mental toughness, and moral courage. It will appeal to millions of people who can learn from Dr. Eger's inspiring cases and shocking personal story as well as her profound clinical wisdom to heal their lives."--Philip Zimbardo, Ph.D., Stanford Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Author of the New York Times-Bestselling The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil

"I would take Edie Eger on an Op with me any day."--U.S. Navy SEAL Commander (Ret) Mark Divine, Bestselling author of The Way of the SEAL and Unbeatable Mind

"Life's experiences can lead to contraction and grief and to expansion and love. The story of Edie Eger's WWII era experiences and her subsequent growth and life path is an incredible journey and victory of the human soul over the pain of human degradation."--Stephen Robinson, CEO, MAGIS Group LLC, Specialist in Optimal Performance under Stress(TM) (OPS(TM)) training

"We brought Dr. Eger to work with our most troubled military personnel--people grappling with the most intense emotional scars from their experience in battle. Dr. Eger is a healer of the highest order. Personally, I have learned from this gifted human being, this indomitable survivor, this accomplished therapist more about humanity--and suffering--and resilience, than all my advanced degrees put together. Dr. Eger has informed and inspired me more than any other role model in my practice of thirty years. This effervescent, brawny, octogenarian has more than a story to tell, a therapy to offer, a journey to guide; she brings us to a new way of being."--U.S. Navy Capt. Robert Koffman, M.D., Former Director of Deployment Health/Psychological Health

"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 Laureate

"Dr. Edith Eva Eger is my kind of hero. She survived unspeakable horrors and brutality; but rather than let her painful past destroy her, she chose to transform it into a powerful gift - one she uses to help others heal."--Jeannette Walls, author of The Glass Castle

A beautiful memoir, reminiscent of the great works of Anne Frank and Viktor Frankl. But it is more than a book--it is a work of art. It gave me goosebumps, the kind that grace you in transcendent moments of appreciating a Mozart sonata, an Elizabeth Barrett Browning sonnet, or the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.--Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg

"Edith's strength and courage are remarkable in this memoir as she draws on her own unthinkable experience in Nazi concentration camps to become a therapist and help others recover from all kinds of hardship. Her life and work are an incredible example of forgiveness, resilience and generosity."--Sheryl Sandberg

"I can't imagine a more important message for modern times. Eger's book is a triumph, and should be read by all who care about both their inner freedom and the future of humanity."--New York Times Book Review

"A more important book for our times is hard to imagine"--The Bookseller

About the Author

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. The Choice is her first book.
