Now collected in a giftable boxed set, two companion works by Holocaust survivor and eminent psychologist Edith Eger—her New York Times bestselling memoir The Choice, and her inspirational guide The Gift.

“I’ll be forever changed by Edith Eger’s story.” —Oprah Winfrey

Edith Eger’s classic nonfiction works, wonderful gifts on their own, are now available in a collectible set. Her profound messages help us analyze our own thoughts and behaviors, move on from past hardships, and find joy in everyday life. Read in tandem, these works will inspire and guide readers toward a richer, more fulfilling life of love, understanding, and forgiveness.

In the New York Times bestselling The Choice, Eger tells the story of her training as a ballerina and Olympic gymnast before being sent to Auschwitz at the age of sixteen. After decades struggling with flashbacks and survivor’s guilt, determined to stay silent and hide from the past, she returned to Auschwitz thirty-five years after the war ended, and began at last to truly heal. She finally understood how to forgive the one person she’d been unable to forgive—herself.

Edie interweaves her remarkable personal journey with the moving stories of patients she has helped. She explores how we can be imprisoned in our own minds and how to find the key to freedom. The Choice is a life-changing book that has already provided hope and comfort to hundreds of thousands of readers.

In The Gift, Eger explains why the most persistent imprisonment she experienced was not in the prison the Nazis put her in, but the one she created for herself—the prison within her own mind. The Gift, a prescriptive complement to The Choice, helps readers see a path forward in their own lives, and explains how to attain the peace Eger eventually found for herself.

Accompanied by stories from her own life and the lives of her patients, Eger’s empowering lessons help readers see how their darkest moments can be their greatest teachers. We all face suffering—sadness, loss, despair, fear, anxiety, failure. And we all have a choice: to give in and give up in the face of trauma and hardship, or to live every moment as a gift.

The new edition of The Gift includes two new chapters on dealing with the emotional consequences of Covid, and how to bring the joy of food and family into your life. This chapter, jointly written with her daughter, Dr. Marianne Engle, is accompanied by seventeen of their favorite recipes.

Praise for Dr. Edith Eger

“I’ll be forever changed by Dr. Eger’s story…The Choice is a reminder of what courage looks like in the worst of times and that we all have the ability to pay attention to what we’ve lost, or to pay attention to what we still have.” - Oprah Winfrey

"This book is partly a memoir and partly a guide to processing trauma. Eger was only sixteen years old when she and her family got sent to Auschwitz. After surviving unbelievable horrors, she moved to the United States and became a therapist. Her unique background gives her amazing insight, and I think many people will find comfort right now from her suggestions on how to handle difficult situations." - Bill Gates

“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 Lori Gottlieb

“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

"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
