Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Choice by Edith Eger, read by Tovah Feldshuh with an introduction by the author.
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.
"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 best-selling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg)
"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 Peach Prize Laureate)
"I can't describe to you how powerful this book is... it's an important story." (Marian Keyes, author of The Break)
