Description: World renowned psychologist Edith Eger is uniquely placed to expound on the choice we make when it comes to suffering: live as a victim, or as a survivor. Sent to Auschwitz with her family as a 16 year-old, she survived, putting it down to 'working together and helping others', a lesson she then applied to the career and new life she embraced in the US. In this remarkable memoir, the story of the author's exceptional life is interspersed with accounts of patients she has helped move from trauma to triumph in her clinical practice.

Written with integrity and compassion, this book contains inspiring approaches to achieving healing and freedom by confronting the suffering that life inevitably throws at us.

We found this book very insightful and compelling. We appreciated the parallels between her clients' lives and her own.
