Abstract:

The author draws on her experiences as a Holocaust survivor, as well as the lives of her patients, to offer practical, uplifting advice about how to recognize and stop destructive, self-sabotaging patterns to find freedom and greater life fulfillment.

Edith Eger's powerful first book The Choice told the story of her survival in the concentration camps, her escape, healing, and journey to freedom. Oprah Winfrey says, "I will be forever changed by Dr. Eger's story." Thousands of people around the world have written to Eger to tell her how The Choice moved them and inspired them to confront their own past and try to heal their pain; and to ask her to write another, more "how-to" book. Now, in The Gift, Eger expands on her message of healing and provides a hands-on guide that gently encourages us to change the thoughts and behaviors that may be keeping us imprisoned in the past.
