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."

"...it 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."

    This book was pure drivel. It’s written by someone who believes that he is un-important and nobody as he states but his book can save the world. He has no historical data psychological data or scientific data to back anything stayed. He downplays Christianity and Jesus Christ while quoting Him saying that he’s inspiring. Both can’t be true. These were but the ramblings of someone who what’s self justification for being an ting the the way they do.

    great writing, great ideas, but absolutely no help psychologically and not really much to do with the title at all. “how to be free” but there’s literally not one piece of advice in here. just a cluster of random ideas and theories for why we think the way we do.

    I really wanted to like this book, I enjoyed it up until the author started going into the nature of sex in animals. It turned into more of a rant of the author putting their personal feelings into the subject matter rather than actual helpful information for others. The writing is all over the place at times, skipping back and forth from meaningful information to incoherent nonsense. None of which is backed by anything except the author perception of how things seem, based on quick research they probably did on whatever they were talking about. I will not be finishing this.

    Interesting. It is exactly as it claims. Neither a text book or professional how to. Made me think and consider my own experiences and observations. As for views on God, the writer is entitled to their opinion. Question to all of the angry Christians - aren’t you all supposed to love thy neighbor, turn the other cheek and not demonstrate hate? Maybe you are the ones who should review your Christian faith. Fake Christians are NOT godly.

    I’m about to read through this for the second time. I have been battling with depression for nearly 6 years now, and this book was one of the few things that has helped me. I am finally beginning to feel whole again
