Description

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Choice by Edith Eger, read by Tovah Feldshuh with an introduction by the author.

'The Choice is a gift to humanity. One of those rare and eternal stories that you don't want to end and that leaves you forever changed' DESMOND TUTU, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

Edith Eger was a gymnast and ballerina when she was sent to Auschwitz at the age of sixteen. There, she was made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele. Her heroic actions helped her sister to survive, and her bunkmates to save her life, during a death march, after which she was found in a pile of bodies, barely alive. She recovered and moved to America, going on to become an eminent psychologist, and giving the keynote address at Viktor Frankl's 90th birthday party.

Like Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning, Dr Edith Eger's important book, The Choice, could change your life. Eger shares stories of the Holocaust and the experiences of her clients , who range from survivors of abuse to soldiers suffering from PTSD. She explains how many of us live within a mind that has become a prison and shows how freedom becomes possible once we confront our suffering. Warm, wise and compassionate, The Choice offers profound insights into the nature of human suffering, and our capacity to heal.

Review quote

Extraordinary....will stick with you long after you read it -- Bill Gates The Choice is a gift to humanity. One of those rare and eternal stories that you don't want to end and that leaves 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 * Eger's remarkable spirit shines through in every word * Stylist * 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 masterpiece of holocaust literature. Her memoir, like her life, is extraordinary, harrowing and inspiring in equal measure * The Times Literary Supplement *
