The Choice: Embrace the Possible (out of print)
"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 "Important...gripping...not just another holocaust book...a universal message of hope." -- Philip Zimbardo, author of The Lucifer Effect "Comparisons to Man's Search for Meaning are natural but this work has the potential to be even more bold" -- Michael Berenbaum, Former Project Director, US Holocaust Memorial Museum "One of those rare, page-turning books that will leave the reader fundamentally changed" -- Harriet Lerner, author of The Dance of Anger
A native of Hungary, Edith Eger was a teenager in 1944 when she and her family were sent to Auschwitz during the Second World War. Despite overwhelming odds, Edith survived the Holocaust and moved with her husband to the United States. Having worked in a factory whilst raising her young family, she went on to graduate with a PhD from the University of Texas and became an eminent psychologist. Today, she lectures around the world and is often flown in by the military to deal with their most troubling cases.
