To read The Gift by Edith Eger is like being in therapy. Real therapy. Dr. Eger brings you face to face with the prisons you’ve constructed in your own mind that keep you from living a life of emotional freedom and fulfillment. She also provides the keys to unlocking those gates and deconstructing the walls that keep you chained up. It is a gift indeed!
The book is divided into twelve chapters, each identifying and discussing a specific prison we find ourselves grappling with. I’ll talk about those in a minute, but first I think it’s important to know a little about the author.
