Publisher Description

How can we free ourselves from mental suffering? How can we unlock what the poet William Blake referred to as “the mind-forged manacles” - those unhelpful, unfounded and inflexible habits of thought which keep us from reaching our true creative potential?

This book provides practical advice on how to achieve this.

But it also offers an imaginative holistic theoretical framework for an understanding of the nature of the universe, the psychological history of the human race and the meaning of life.

What Readers Have Said About "How to Be Free" :

"I just wanted to thank you for publishing 'How to Be Free'. It helped me through many hard times that have recently occurred. My self-esteem has been raised because of you."

"This is a book that is full of insight and as a psychology major, I would highly recommend this book for all open minds."

"Opened my eyes and changed my life."

" f*****g changed my life."

"This book is dark, deep and brilliantly written. I'm very moved by the author's candidness about mental illnesses, a subject that has become extinct in our conversations and dealings. Here is a person who reached deep inside himself and spilled his soul out onto each page... and he did it so eloquently. I applaud him for bringing me to tears."

"I found your book particularly helpful at a low point in my life... You have given me new hope..."

Good book worth the read

I sat down and read this book cover to cover on evening. I found it to be very interesting. There were several times I stopped and looked to see if it was fiction or not but something kept me glued to the pages.

I don't know if I'd call it a help book as much as a personal view on the world. Either way it was a good read and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Great Book

I love that the reviewers who didn't like this book were outraged Christians. Their crazy reactions to it show the truth they saw in it. Anger is a great mask for fear. The writing is a little rough but the ideas are oh so elegant.
